The safest scholar transport in South Africa

The Cool (kids’) Cabs service is fully personalised and tailored to fit your schedule.

  • We have been successfully, safely and happily transporting children for the past 10 years.

  • We transport a maximum of 4 children per cab and provide appropriate car seats for all children on board.

  • The service is aimed at direct transportation and reducing time on the roads – we’re so confident in this offering that we guarantee that we’ll never alter your child’s travel time by more than 15 minutes.

Of course, being an excellent driver is a prerequisite for application at Cool (kids’) Cabs, but we also understand that driving a child requires MUCH more than just a good driver.

You’ll be pleased to know that all our expert drivers are also experienced caregivers who will care for your child in a compassionate and professional manner.

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

Clear, recognisable Cool (kids’) Cabs branding and cab toppers

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 4 children per car

We believe in direct routes and know that less time on the road is what is safest for your child. As such, we only allow a maximum of 4 children per vehicle to ensure that no child’s journey is ever delayed longer than 15 minutes.

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!

Journeys are customised to fit your schedule

We get it! No 2 days are ever the same and you need a provider that can work seamlessly with your changing schedule. We are always on hand to ensure that any schedule change, be it big or small, is sorted out quickly and easily.

Available at any school

Our service is customised to meet your needs!

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 receive to confirm pick up and drop off, these are sent via our tracking team who monitor your child’s journey in real-time.

Appropriate car seats

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

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.

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.

What our families have to say:

Being a client now for around 10 years, my view of Cool (kids’) Cabs has only grown in praise from a very positive base that I started with. My boys have literally grown up with them and it has been a very happy relationship. Being a fulltime working mom, having that lifting help every week, and during the holidays for the playdate lifting, is huge for me. They are not just any old school lifting club. Their attention to safety and service delivery on several fronts is what makes this service so valuable and distinctive!

Georgette

Cool Cabs has without a doubt made my life a lot easier. Not only are they safe and reliable but my daughter thoroughly enjoys the rides too. Thank you to the drivers for being second moms to our kids!

Boipelo

Thank you for your professionalism, for making my life easier and for keeping my baby safe

Nerisha Ganasen

I wish to thank you and your lovely staff for being so great with Gabriel. I've recommended you all highly to several other people, and I think this is a great business

Erin Czarra

I feel like a weight has been taken off my shoulders since you have taken over lifting my girls. Knowing that they are safe and looked after is invaluable, and I have been very impressed with the service offered to date. Pauline is also lovely!

Christine Cladakis

For my 2-yr old who started creche this was a brilliant service – always efficient and professional. Great peace of mind for parents. Thanks!

Anon

Thank you for the great service. Not one issue. Always on time and efficient. The SMS notifications of pickups and drop-off are great peace of mind. It really helped me out this year.

Anon

I have to start by saying thank you, I am so grateful for flexibility and your want to assist, it’s not often that I receive this amount of hard work and REAL effort to make it work so please know how very grateful we are to you!

Bridgit

Harriet is lovely! She really put me at ease, which is not easy when you see your 6 month old driving away with other people (my heart was in slight panic mode for a bit…). Please thank her for me!

Belinda

Thank you for the great service on Friday – all went very well and my daughters were very impressed with the professionalism (and my son said the driver was very nice!). As I was out of town it was a relief to know that my kids were in very good hands.

Lisa
