Could you picture yourself choosing your career over your children? This scenario happens everyday to families in Maryland who commute an average of 30 miles to work according to U.S Census Bureau. A single mom I knew one day at work after a sudden shift change had to ask herself two questions: 1. Will I have to quit my job? and 2. How am I going to get my kids to/from school? In efforts to help her find services available I quickly learned there weren't many companies providing transportation just for children and within a few months I formed Lexi's Lil Bug. Personally I remember as a child my parents had to travel over an hour to work teaching me and brother independence at an early age. We walked to school in groups and was entrusted to neighbors including post office worker to check on us while they were away. 

Lexi's Lil Bug is a children's rideshare service in Maryland providing parents a peace of mind and stable work life balance. Currently Erika has serviced over 1000 rides since September 2018 taking kids to/from school and after-school activities in the Baltimore Metropolitan Area for parents. 

Funds raised will allow Erika to meet demand for rides by contracting an additional 5 drivers when purchasing a commercial auto insurance policy specific for Transportation Network Companies and processing of background checks according to Maryland Public Service Commission regulations.
