DRIVERS ARE PARENTS OF SCHOLARS IN SCHOOLS
Safe, Secure & Affordable
Have you been looking for a solution to the problem of getting your children to school and back, while still trying to manage your own hectic schedule?
Safe, Secure and Affordable transportation for your scholars has arrived and is just a click of a button away!
Schoolride is a mobile APP that has been designed for Parents/Guardians to get scholars to and from school safely and securely. Whether it’s to manage the odd times that we’re faced with when it comes to extra murals, or just a morning trip to school.
Parents/Guardians or Scholars can make a booking with a registered driver to a location that has been APPROVED by the Parent/Guardian only.
The Parent/Guardian will register themselves as well as their scholars on the Schoolride APP. They will specify which school they attend which will determine which drivers are available for drop-off and collection. Once a booking has been made the APP will request a drop off address, pickup address and what time the trip is required.
The Parent/Guardian will receive a notification the moment their scholar has been picked up, as well as a notification when the scholar has been dropped off at the approved location.
Any Parent/Guardian who has a scholar registered in a school may register as a Schoolride driver and drive for multiple schools.
