Why would parents need private transportation for their kids to schools, activities, or events? Well, first of all, as a parent you are probably in perpetual motion, driving kids here, there, and everywhere. It’s exhausting. But logistically speaking, sometimes there is a conflict—more than one sibling needs to be somewhere at the same time—or maybe you work long hours but want your child to benefit from a right-after-school program that’s offsite, or you simply have your own plans (it can happen!). Also, kids can only ride the school bus until Grade 5, unless they get special dispensation, which is still a bit young to travel around the city alone.

If you don’t want to rely on TTC or other public transit or feel your child is too young to navigate the streets on their own, these companies offering door-to-door private transportation for kids—each with impeccable safety records, experienced drivers, and safe vehicles for children (and in some cases car seats and boosters)—can be a huge help.

All of these companies can be booked directly by parents for individual child transport—as opposed to chartered bus companies that book only through organizations like schools and youth groups.
