How con­fi­dent are you that your child is trans­ported safely, cor­rectly strapped into the ap­pro­pri­ate car seat and driven by some­one who is as re­li­able and re­spon­si­ble as you? Cool (Kids’) Cabs, the cab ser­vice fo­cused solely on trans­port­ing chil­dren safely from school, launched in Cape Town in Jan­uary.

Founded in 2009 in Jo­han­nes­burg, Cool (Kids’) Cabs has been a mo­bile care­giver for chil­dren for close to a decade with more than 8 000 pick­ups per month.

With only the high­est safety stan­dards in place, driv­ers en­sure all chil­dren are cor­rectly strapped into an ap­pro­pri­ate child re­straint at all times.

To top it off, the ser­vice has driven more than 5 mil­lion kilo­me­tres – in­jury-free – in eight years!

“We strongly felt the need to turn the cur­rent model of scholar trans­port on its head. We wanted to break the neg­a­tive, stereo­typ­i­cal per­cep­tion and de­liver a pos­i­tive, work­able so­lu­tion,” says owner Tiffini Wiss­ing Hein.

All Cool (Kids’) Cabs have an ad­vanced track­ing sys­tem mon­i­tored 24/7 by a highly skilled team of of­fice-based su­per­vi­sors who re­main the par­ent’s point of con­tact at all times. All ve­hi­cles are reg­u­larly main­tained and daily checks are done be­fore leav­ing the of­fice. As part of their com­mit­ment to safety, the com­pany has a strict rule of no more than four chil­dren to a stan­dard ve­hi­cle.
