Red Wagon was created to address a longstanding transportation issue in Richmond, VA and the surrounding counties. At that time, only 15% of school aged youth in the city were accessing out-of-school time programs and services. The main barrier was and continues to be lack of transportation. Our founder and CEO, Damon Jiggetts, a career youth development professional, set out to mitigate this barrier to quality developmental opportunities.
With over 25 years of experience, Damon understands the importance of overall youth development and how extracurricular activities positively contribute to academic success and social/emotional wellbeing. Access to quality programs shouldn't be a barrier to any child and Red Wagon is here to drive our young people towards success.
Red Wagon was designed to ensure safe, reliable and affordable youth transportation services for our clients and customers. We have developed a business model that creates significant savings for our school district partners and non-profit clients.
Most of our services are provided during out-of-school hours, yet we are available for school day field trips and appointments. We are also able to serve students with special needs and our drivers receive ongoing training to ensure that all students are safe and secure while in our care.
