The headache of toting your kids around a city like New York may be enough to keep you housebound. Kid Car NY hopes to alleviate the stress of family outings with its kid-friendly car service, offering clean, safety seat-equipped vans suited for kids of all ages. With few appealing alternatives for carless urban parents (dragging your own gear into cabs or braving the subway during rush hour with toddlers in tow), Kid Car is a simple, convenient solution. Annual membership is $300 (with 25% off the first year), though non-members can use the service at an extra cost. By-the-hour services are offered throughout Manhattan and to and from Newark, La Guardia, and JFK airports. Drivers are restricted from using cell phones while driving, and gratuity is always included in costs. Kid Car is such a transportable concept, we’re betting we’ll see it in other increasingly family-friendly cities soon. More details here.
