Angies List does not have a category for that. Possible solutions I can think of:

1) public transit bus transportation

2) arranging to drop kid off on the way to work at a friend's to go to/from school with the friend - either with parent driving or school bus or walking, as applicable

3) babysitter - some will do school dropoff and pickup, including childcare before and after school as needed

4) some daycares run shuttle buses to local schools - you drop the kid at daycare, they deliver to school and pick up and bring back to the daycare for you to pick up after work.

5) Ditto (usually after-school only) - some Boys and Girls Clubs have after-school pickup and delivery to the club, where you later pick them up.

6) there are commercial school shuttle bus services in some areas - talk to the school office if any deliver there. Sometimes run by private bus company, sometimes by taxi companies, sometimes by airport shuttle companies, etc. More commonly doing school pickup than delivery because that (early afternoon) is commonly a slow times for them in many areas where taxis are used mostly for airport runs, when workers have a car in the shop, people in town temporarily on work, etc.

7) some schools have pre- and post-school activity programs which might work, again talk to the front office

8) some churches run this sort of pre- and post-school activity program with shuttle vans. Ditto in some areas where senior centers run daycare programs, with the seniors helping out or working at the daycare.

9) if you have an at-home /retired neighbor interested in a bit more $ they might do this for you (though liability issues and tax issues and such if they so not already have a babysitting business

10) find a school friend of your kid who has an at-home parent so they can come home from school with and stay the friend with till you get off work, who will do this for a bit of cash - but same licensing/tax issues as above if this is a regular thing
