How ride-hailing is transforming school transportation

A growing number of ride-hailing apps are allowing parents to find rides to school for their children.

In Phoenix, for example, three national ride-hailing services—HopSkipDrive, VANGo and Z?m—have been operating since the spring, USA Today reported.

HopSkipDrive has since expanded into Houston and now operates in six states. Z?m now operates in San Francisco, Los Angeles, Phoenix, Miami, Dallas, Chicago and San Diego, according to USA Today.
