iRide drives your kids for you - New Service Available in Twin Cities

See also

I was at Apple Day in Excelsior this past weekend and I saw this great booth that read:

iRide is for Tweens to Teens ages 8-18 and gets your kids where they need to go! Our team currently provides service in the western suburbs of Minneapolis, MN.

Well, I had to check it out!

I spoke with one of the owners, a former after-school care provider for the Minnetonka School District, and he explained a little more to me how it works:

Our goal is to help families manage their child(ren)'s busy schedules by getting them to their afterschool/recreational commitments efficiently and safely. The more you ride, the less expensive it is to use the service.

The rates seemed pretty reasonable - here is their rate sheet. Their service area covers most of Minnetonka school district, up through the Lake Minnetonka North, Wayzata, over into Eden Prairie and down into Chanhassen/Chaska. That covers a lot of ground!

I have two children myself and as they get older, I could easily see several schedule conflicts between their activities or my work schedule as a small business consultant. This is something us Western Suburban people should keep in mind!
