A new company in the Bay Area is operating as an Uber for kids who need rides to and from school and afterschool activities. Shuddle, which has “a lengthy application and background check process for drivers (who must have caregiver experience) and a team of staff monitoring each ride in real time,” hopes to begin operations in other cities soon.
