  1. I take 4 teens to school everyday. They are so nice ;w;

  2. That call the school bus lol?

  3. So many things wrong …..

  4. I can't with this , what going? You just can't never know a person even with a back around check 😳

  5. Very stupid idea! It’s just teaching kids to get in the car with and or trust strangers. Kids are too vulnerable, just the other day I went to a water park with my family and this little girl was following me around because I let her go ahead of me in line. Mind you I’m a 30 year old man and never seen this child in my life. I finally had to tell her to get lost but in a nice way. A child’s trust is earned too easily, this will lead to kidnaps etc. not sure whose bright idea this was🤔

  6. Oh this will turn out great

  7. If I were a parent, I would NOT let my kids get into some strangers car. No way. What if the stranger, despite the vigorous background checks, decides out of the blue to kidnap the kid? It can happen. I say carpool with fellow parents or parents you know. It will make it a HECK of a lot better.

  8. So we are letting our kids ride with strangers. Now we are detaching parents from kids. Parents are having other's taking their kids to soccer or school or other events.

    I understand we have to have jobs, but the 10 minutes it takes for at least 1 parent to take their child, or wait with their child for a bus.

    Even if my parents were busy they would ask a neighbor or we would ask to ride with friends. This world is dark

  9. if background checks don't work on mass shooters what makes you think it works on child predators?

  10. Just dont have kids if you can't handle then …. Some people don't even have common sense…

  11. Wow…thats crazyyyy…parwnts need to careful…fuck that im staying old school n driving my own kids. If not we walking…but not allow dem to get in cars alone

  12. If you let your kids get into a strangers car you deserve what you get. Ridesharing hasnt even been safe for adults. Tf. This is started by some child predators

  13. This is really stupid a kid as young as 3 can get into a car by themselves with a stranger really..the parent or parents must be on damn drugs to think that’s ok and safe it’s not. Everybody thought Uber and lyft were safe now look at it. No thank you! My kid will be with me to go places, I’m about to be 28 and I always known that kids go places with the parent or parents not with people they don’t know. I’ll pass on that

  14. I travelled on a plane at just under 1yr old on a balkan a.w plane to uk on my own. It was a bit of a pain going through passport control cos the desk was too high.

  15. So now parents are serving the kids to pedos

  16. Congratulations America teaching kids to get in cars with strangers didn't humans learn there lesson in History?!?!?!

  17. this seems like a bad idea, kids are so vulnerable, instead of being in a car with a stranger that could kidnap them, why not just use the school bus?

  18. Like this isnt going to be abused either by bad kids or bad adults.

  19. Sounds like a lazy rich persons problem.

  20. I was a single mom felt safer with school bus y my family or me driving. I sometimes got scheduled night y morning shift I was the only income. After I got married hubby y me took turns only used the bus when I got pregnant…couldn’t reach the wheel my belly got so huge was 1st non-Doctor sign I was having a big giant of a boy lol 😆. Daughter friends called for food delivery (strangers) for a few weeks then school banned it made her mad ,but I was relieved. Scared they call she’s next to them then bam she’s the one grabbed.

  21. Worst idea ever especially for a 3 year old they are crazy!

  22. That’s just asking for kids to get molested , how in the world are you going to do that

  23. My son is a very young looking 17 year old and he used Lyft for over a week while he was interning in Albuquerque. He said not one driver asked him how old he was.

  24. I'm old. We walked to school.

  25. Dude honestly it's your child…make time to take your child and be involved where there going, what if they get killed in the car of the stranger from a crash and the parent was too busy to take them and ensure they are safe

  26. Nope .. Not doing this with my kid.. That is still a stranger though even if it's prebooked driver.. I'd rather ask a family friend or relative to drop my kid.. Much safer especially in today's America

  27. This is teaching kids to get in cars with strangers!
    What if some 3 year old gets in the wrong car?

  28. For those divorced parents that have to do the walk of shame with their children after they had a one night stand😂
    This app is obviously for lazy bad parents that neglect their children.

  29. Called me old school but I liked it when my own parents drive me…..

  30. Parents can’t take their own kids anywhere?

  31. This is how you lose your child

  32. Just like teachers…..dont be racist because colored child molesters are just as good as gay grey white uns!!! Handle your own shit losers!!!

  33. ride share drivers can be sued if something happens to a child they dropped off. It's like a school district or my employer. There is a legal responsibility that many are not familiar with.

  34. I had parents who loved me and told me to never take rides from strangers. I guess today's parents don't remember Mary Vincent. Lawrence Bernard "Larry" Singleton (July 28, 1927 – December 28, 2001) was an American criminal known for perpetrating an infamous rape and mutilation of an adolescent hitch-hiker, Mary Vincent. On September 29, 1978, Singleton picked up 15-year-old Mary Vincent of Las Vegas while she was hitchhiking in Berkeley, California, raped her, and then severed both her forearms with a hatchet and threw her off of Interstate 5 in Del Puerto Canyon, California, leaving her naked and near death. She managed to pull herself back up the cliff and alert a passing couple, who took her to a hospital. By the time of Singleton's arrest, Vincent wore prosthetic arms He brutally raped Vincent and cut off her arms and left her to die in a ditch off the Interstate 5 in Del Puerto Canyon, California. Vincent managed to crawl up to safety and later acted as a key witness against the rapist.

    Released from prison on good behavior from his 14-year, 8 month sentence, he went on to murder Roxanne Hayes. On February 19, 1997, Singleton stabbed Hayes in his new home. The police found the nude rapist covered in blood as he stood over the mutilated body of Roxanne Hays. The victim was a mother of three from Tampa, Florida.

  35. My nightmare. Only way I could be able to trust this is 100% video camera coverage.

  36. Horrible idea. I would never.

  37. I think this is great, but only female drivers.

  38. 2018 parents “don’t go into strangers cars!”
    2019 parent: “I book a car ride for you with a stranger!”

  39. What's the difference between dropping your 3 year old at a preschool and letting them ride in one of these ride sharing apps for kids? All have risk, but provides convience.

  40. Religious ed??? And wherever a 4 year old goes don’t they need a parent or guardian to be with them???

  41. God white parents are just the fucking stupidest

  42. No kid shold aproch or get in to a stranger car.

  43. Oh you parents are just the fucking dumbest

  44. Oh I can't wait to get into a car with a random man. I just dream of it lol

  45. Me have no idea how that app work
