Kiddie Trans, Inc., a transportation service for children, is the first of its kind in Riverside County. Modeled after another successful kids’ transportation service in Georgia, Kiddie Trans has proven to be a lifesaver for many working parents since it began operations in 2007.
Kiddie Trans is operated by Arlene Vaughn, who was inspired to begin the service based on her own experiences as a parent with transportation challenges. “As working parents, we knew what it was like not to be able to see our children off to school and unable to pick them up from school,” she said. “Often, there were times the children were not able to participate in after school activities because of our work schedules.”
For that reason, she aimed to build a company that would transport children to a variety of locations. Kiddie Trans is able to transport children to and from a variety of destinations, including:
• Home & office
• Public & private schools
• Day care facilities
• After school sports & activities
• All season recreational trips
For families whose school bus routes have been eliminated, a transportation service for children can be a welcome solution. “Bus lines have been cut dramatically, and many times parents don’t want kids to walk that far,” Vaughn says. “They can depend on us instead.”
Kiddie Trans can also accommodate unconventional transportation needs, including rides to custody hearings or visits to non-custodial parents. The kids’ transportation service is also accustomed to shuttling children from school to day care, in situations where day care providers need to outsource transportation. The company services older youth as well; transportation is available for kids from ages 3-18.
Kiddie Trans is a California state licensed transportation company, with a fleet of vans that are fully insured, inspected daily and maintained to the highest possible standards. Each van is outfitted with safety equipment, radio communication, passenger emergency information and seat belts. As a transportation company for children, Kiddie Trans also abides by an extensive driver selection process. All driver applicants must:
• Submit to a background check
• Enroll in random drug and alcohol testing
• Become First Aid and Child CPR Certified
• Enroll in a DMV program that routinely checks driving records
