12 Apr Introducing Cool (kids’) Cabbies – A new way for kids to get from point A to B
The aim of Cool (kids’) Cabs has always been to reduce the burden on parents by providing a safe and reliable transport service that gets your children from point A to B without leaving you riddled with mom-guilt. Over the last nine years, we are delighted to have achieved this and are proud to have created a new expectation for scholar transport services.
We are exceedingly proud of our extensive recruitment and training process for new lady drivers and refuse to compromise on safety and security measures that ensure we get your little ones where they need to be safely and comfortably. But maintaining this standard comes at an expense, something that I have always been frank about – we are a premier service, with consequentially premium fees.
However, this has excluded certain parents from our reach which has long been a concern of mine and after careful consideration, I am proud to announce that we have found a solution, that is accessible for all. The introduction of Cool (kids’) Cabbies is a huge milestone and accomplishment for us all and it gives me the greatest delight to officially launch.
Over the years we have been approached repeatedly and pushed to extend our service to a bussed service, and whilst the economics would certainly be favourable, we are simply not willing to compromise on our promise of safety and remain steadfast in our belief that bussing children are not a safe option.
If you’re already onboard with us, you will know that we are unrelenting in our commitment to ensuring that every child is in the correctly fitted and appropriately selected car seat at all times. With almost all commercial buses only having lap belts, it is simply not possible to ensure that a child is correctly strapped into a car seat within the South African context… until now.
What can you expect from Cool (kids’) Cabbies?
The Cool (kids’) Cabbie is a 7-seater vehicle equipped with all our normal bells and whistles, which means you still get:
- Trained Lady Drivers
- Onboard Cameras with Live tracking
- 24/7 Office based monitoring
- Appropriate car seats
- SMS Notifications
The only material difference, aside from the cost, is that Cool (kids’) Cabbies can carry a maximum of six children, at predetermined collection times, from fixed collection points to select destinations. Very importantly, and to our great excitement, the Cool (kids’) Cabbie is fitted with a full, three-point seatbelt on every single seat and is fitted with car seats all round.
There is no compromise! We are just making our award winning-service more accessible to everyone in this cost-effective, group lifting model.
Feel free to mail us with your suggestion for schools we should service, we’re open to mobilizing the service to as many schools as possible!
