There’s a lot of information here and we’ve tried to make it as easy to understand as possible. For more information, visit our FAQ page. If you still need help, please contact us at hello@kidskruiser.com. We’re never too busy to answer your questions.

This is how to find the number of miles for your trip and calculate your fare:

Go to MapQuest and enter in your pickup and drop off locations. Note the number of miles for your trip, then come back to this page.

Total Distance (miles) Total Fare
0-3 $15.00
3-6 $20.00
6-8 $25.00

Once your child is registered, our rates are based on the mileage for each trip plus any additional requested services. Unlike traditional taxi services, we do not keep the meter running. Please note our rates are subject to change and quotes are approximate and may differ from the actual mileage. The breakdown is:

  • $30 nonrefundable annual membership fee per family
  • $2.50 per mile for every mile over 8 miles
  • $10 cancellation fee for rides cancelled with less than 24 hours advance notice  
  • that the full fare is charged when the passenger is a “no show” for a scheduled pickup

Additional Services:

  • $5 escort fee (to escort your child in or out of buildings; includes signing in or out)
  • $15 wait time fee (for waits over 10 minutes past scheduled pickup time)
  • $5 short notice fee
