Who We Are

What if Uber and Care.com had a baby?

GoKart Kids has helped thousands of families find the perfect solution to their child's transportation needs. Since launching in 2016, GoKart Kids has continued to grow their clientele and expand geographically. GoKart Kids also leverages their services to assist the government and corporate sectors.


The founder of GoKart Kids created the company when she realized she had no viable option for getting her kids to and from their various activities while she was at work. As a single working mother of three kids, she simply wasn't able to juggle getting her kids to their numerous activities and work responsibilities. Many parents share in her struggle as they strive to achieve a greater work life balance. In Stacy's case, her work schedule meant her son was not going to be able to join his school's lacrosse team. Her son was attending a new school and she knew the opportunity to be part of the team was important. Stacy knew there needed to be a better way for parents to get their kids where they needed to go without sacrificing their other responsibilities. When Stacy couldn't find a trusted and reliable option to get her kids where they needed to go, and after months of research and planning, she decided to create a company that could.

As the company grows, we remain dedicated to the quality of our service. We believe our job is an important one, which is why we take our job very seriously . Working for GoKart Kids is a source of pride for each and every one of us.

Safety comes first. We seek to provide parents with a safe and reliable option for their children's transportation needs. Our goal is to help parents juggle their professional and personal responsibilities, and offer peace of mind when it comes to transportation. We believe families can have it all! 

We serve families and the broader community through our government and corporate partnerships. We are strong advocates for child safety, opportunity, accessibility and healthy lifestyles.
