The safest scholar transport in South Africa

The Big Yellow Bus – the only bus offering full 3-point seat belts and car seats on every seat

  • This service offers the same safety features as our other services but in a cost-effective package as it runs on a routed, group lifting scheme.

  • The Big Yellow Bus runs on set bus routes which are contracted to parents as well as for hire directly by schools for excursions.

  • In-line with our commitment to safety, we’ve custom fitted the vehicle according to the most stringent safety standard, with full three-point belts.

Yes, you read that right!

No more compromising on safety while little bodies bounce around incorrectly secured in school buses not designed for children. A full seatbelt, and car seat where needed, on every seat.

What you can expect from our Big (Yellow) Bus offering:

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.

Always an assistant driver/caregiver on board

When transporting larger groups of children we believe you need more than one caregiver/driver on board to ensure everyone’s wellbeing is taken care of. We never compromise on the safety of the children we transport!

A maximum of 20 children per car

The Big Yellow Bus can transport up to 20 children providing a more affordable, group lifting service. Every single seat has a 3-point seatbelt on it allowing us to correctly install as many car seats as needed. This is a first in South Africa!

Clear, recognisable Cool (kids’) Cabs branding

From our branded vehicles 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.

Onboard cameras

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

Available on select bus routes as well as for private school hire

Our service is customised to meet your needs!

Three-point seatbelts on every single seat

Every single seat on our bus has a full 3-point seatbelt which means we can strap in a car seat on every seat as needed. It also ensures that every child who travels with us is always strapped in safely and correctly. This is a first for South African scholar transport.

Pre-determined collection times and chartered bookings

Our bus runs on pre-determined collection times for select schools. However, we are also available for specific chartered bookings such as school outings, excursions and children’s parties.

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.


Our desire is to offer transportation that transcends requirements, exceeds expectations and is accessible to a wide range of families and schools. No school nor family should be forced to compromise on safety. Tiffini Wissing Hein

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.
