A new "Uber for kids" startup called Shuddle will ferry children around the Bay Area, reports said.
The startup has raised $2.6 million in funding and was founded by Sidecar founder Nick Allen, according to the Re/Code. Allen reportedly decided to create the new service when he saw a lot of families using Sidecar to transport their children. He decided there needed to be a new business for children.
“They don’t have the right insurance, and it’s against the terms and conditions — you have to be 18,” Allen told the Re/Code. “They’re not built for a third person to monitor the ride.”
