Arrange rides for your child
Gomates makes carpooling easy for families. You can organize rides for children by adding their names to your account. Then each time you add a passenger to a trip, simply select your child from the list which appears.
Your carpool group can see the drivers and riders for each trip. Whenever kids go as passengers, Gomates shows them alongside parent names, so you can use first names or nicknames. No other information about the child is shared.
Rides scheduled for your kids appear in your personal carpool calendar along with your own trips. To view your child’s trips, click on your Gomates home page.
