At our “Face-to-Face”, we will go over your child’s schedule in detail so that nothing is missed.
Payment for the registration fee (annual) and pre-payment for the scheduled rides (monthly basis).
After supplying two (2) 1 ½” x 1 ½” photos of your child, you will receive a Kids-Kab ID identifying your child as a Kids-Kab rider.
Rates are based on the total destination miles from our office location which is located at: 825 N. Cass Ave. #113 Westmont, IL 60559
We do provide service beyond our Primary Service Area under the following guidelines: For every mile above and beyond our base of 5 miles (total destination), please add $2.00 to the base rate. For example: If the total destination miles between our office, the pick-up location, and to the drop-off location is under 5 miles, the base rate is $15/ride per child. “Per Ride” means ‘One-Way’ trip. If the total destination is more than 5 miles, for example 8 total miles traveled, then you would add $2.00/additional mile to the base rate:
Base Rate (5 miles) = $15 $2 x 3 additional miles = $6 Total rate charged = $21/ride
Some round trip ride requests require our drivers to stay at the same location for the return trip. An additional charge may apply. Discounts may apply for more than one (1) child (same family household) going to/from the same destinations.
Up to a $15.00 service charge may be applied if:
If the driver is asked to wait more than 5 minutes past pick-up time.
If the driver is asked to deliver an item left in the vehicle
