The safest scholar transport in South Africa

The Cool (kids’) Cabbie uses the economy of group lifting, to make our amazing scholar transport accessible to everyone.

  • It offers the same bells and whistles as our usual service but in a fully equipped 7-seater vehicle - this means we can carry a maximum of six children. (Provided one child is over 12 years, 36kgs and 1.5m so as to sit in the front seat, otherwise loading capacity is capped at five children in the rear of the vehicle.)

  • Unlike other group transportation systems, minibuses and busses across the country, our cabbies are fitted with full seatbelts on every single seat so that appropriate car seats can be safely installed for every child.

  • That’s right! We’ve ensured that EVERY child in EVERY one of our vehicles is ALWAYS able to be correctly installed in an age appropriate car seat or, if over 12 years, 36kgs and 1.5, a full three-point belt.

Did you know that lap belts are extremely dangerous?

Are you aware that it is not a legal requirement for registered operators to use car seats when transporting your child?

It’s a terrifying thought that a child could so easily be harmed due to insufficient safety standards! We would never let that happen!

That’s why at Cool (kids’) Cabs we ensure that all safety measures are met and that from car seats to shortening travelling time on the road, we are constantly ensuring your child is as safe as possible at all times.

In order to keep this service accessible to all, it runs on predetermined collection times from fixed collection points to select destinations. However, as with our commitment to always minimising time on the roads, even in a Cool (kids’) Cabbie, we’re committed to getting your child home as quickly as is safe to do so. Forget about hours and hours while dropping off everyone else – we simply don’t believe in this model.

What you can expect from our Cool (kids’) Cabbie offering:

Clear, recognisable Cool (kids’) Cabbies branding

From our branded cars with cab toppers to our clearly branded uniforms and name tags, your child will always be able to spot us. Anywhere. Anytime. The public is always able to act as an extra pair of eyes as we are so visible on the roads.

A maximum of 6 children per car

We still believe in direct routes and limiting the amount of time your child is on the road. Our cabbies will ensure that your child does not wait for hours to get home but that we get them to their destination as quickly as is safe to do so.

Always driven by a fully trained female driver

Statistically women are safer drivers. This, combined with the backing that female drivers are more careful and more emotionally connected to those they transport, is one of the many reasons why we only ever employ female drivers.

Onboard cameras

These allow us to monitor every move, every seatbelt click and every smile!

Pre-determined collection times

We believe in making our service work the best for you. As such, our cabbie routes run on pre-determined collection times to ensure that every day’s lifting stays predictable.

Sms notifications

These are sent directly to you when your child has been safely collected and safely dropped off at home.

Drivers should NEVER be on their phones – we have a strict no -phone policy which all our drivers adhere too. In order to provide you with the SMSs you will received to confirm pick up and drop off, these are sent via our tracking team who monitor your child’s journey in real-time.

24/7 live tracking

All journeys are tracked by our fulltime staff in our control room at headquarters. Our drivers are never alone on the road.

Appropriate Car seats

Every single one of our vehicles is fitted with the correct car seat for your child’s weight and height. Our trained staff ensure that every child is strapped in correctly before every journey.

The safest way to get from A to B

How long is a piece of string?

Our fees are calculated based on your exact requirements, it is therefore very difficult to place a generic fees schedule onto our website. But we want you to know that we have a package for everyone and, no matter what your requirements are, we will make things work for you. As such, we invite you to REQUEST A QUOTE and get accurate information on what YOUR lifting will cost.

Tammi

Thank you to Old School Cool cc and Tiffini Hein for providing a vehicle and driver Harriett to take us into Makausi squatter camp in Primrose to find children in need. We would never ever have found these children without Harriet. A busy day in your business. Thank you!
