Where Did GoKart Come From
GoKart was founded in 2016 by Stacy Shannon. Stacy is a proud mom of three busy school-aged children. Her kids are all involved in sports and after-school activities like lacrosse, band, basketball, and track. Stacy found it incredibly hard to manage to get her kids to all their daily activities, all the while managing professional responsibilities.
Stacy wanted to create a business with parents and kids in mind by providing a reliable, safe, friendly service to help other parents like her to manage their busy days. She started to wonder- what if Uber and Care.com had a baby?
Since the company’s inception in 2016, parents have been trusting GoKart to take their kids where they need to go. GoKart continues to receive 5 stars from its happy parents! Parents are looking for either daily or occasional transportation for their kids and we are proven to be a reliable resource!
When asking GoKart drivers what they love about their job, they rate very highly the relationships they form with the kids. They learn how their day was, their sports activities and what they did over spring break. At GoKart, we love seeing this positive energy and we have learned how to carefully select the drivers with qualities of being kid-friendly, personable yet professional.
The team at GoKart cares very deeply about kids safety, as well as keeping kids involved in sports and activities. We are here to help other parents and caregivers who juggle the modern challenges of a work/life balance.
We have high standards and expectations for our drivers. For example, all drivers have at least 5 years child care experience and highly vetted. In fact, most of our drivers are moms, bus drivers or teachers that are passionate about children.
Let us help get your kids from A to B!
