Products / Services
School Pickup and Dropoff
This transportation is made in the web or mobile application and is intended to provide a pickup and dropoff from school. The web and mobile application will work in tandem to determine availability and can be done online. If unavailable online, they are directed to a call center number to make the reservation by phone.
Children frequently go to a daycare, tutoring, afterschool program, sports, violin lessons, and other self-improvement courses. We take them to these programs. Note that they did not have to go to school that day to be picked up by us for this program.
Summer Camp and Park & Recreation Activities Transportation
Summer Camp and Park & Recreation Activities are available for parents who are working but frequently these camps and activities are in the middle of the day, say from 11a until noon and a parent is working while a child is staying home. This transportation is available to keep the child going to school and dropping them off back at home. We do not verify the parent is at home with this service and therefore must sign a waiver.
Last Minute Help
There are times when parents will get stuck and had originally planned to pickup their child but need us to do that instead. We will pickup the child and drop them at the destination that they have requested.
Co-Located Parent (Peer-to-Peer DayCare Service)
Peer-to-Peer DayCare service will help to add faster and more responsive service to KidsCoolRide, LLC platform. When a parent is unavailable to receive the dropoff of a child in age 2-12 years old at the requested location, we partner with certain daycare and parent co-locations to ensure the child is left at a safe location as in some cases our shuttles and buses are full and we are unable to keep them in our van. Children 13 and older can be left at home unattended by a parent.
School Bus Service
We provide school bus service to individuals.
Free Service Equipment Exchange
Are you a school or DayCare that has buses or vans that you no longer need? If so, let us have the equipment and receive our service free of charge.
Birthday parties are great for kids and moving kids all in one vehicle is a great help to parents because otherwise, multiple cars or chaperons are needed. We also provide birthday party planning services.
Transportation is frequently needed to provide service for special occasions which include Prom, a Quincenera, Sweet Sixteen, Bar/Bat Mitzvah, Christening, Baptism, and most other right of passage ceremonies. We are able to provide our usual line up of vehicles which are listed on our website and include limousines, party buses (which we dub: “Celebration buses” to not encourage underage partying)
Driver Services Placement
We supply drivers to customers who have a car already but need a driver.
Fleet Management App
We license our routing application to schools, large organizations that would have their own fleet of vehicles. The benefits are driver checklists, efficient routing of multiple pickups and dropoff locations, and integration with mechanics work requests.
Vehicle Rental & Consignment
To minimize the overall structure of our vehicle acquisition, we rely on our dealership to monitor for inventory that can be acquired inexpensively. Additionally, we leverage those vehicles can be rented as well as used for Uber and other P2P services yielding additional revenue until the vehicle is eventually sold or re-purposed for internal use.
Vehicle Dealer Services
This is provided as a low cost to capital for KidsCoolRide including using the Dealer Network. While the company will perform sales for profit, the main objective of the sales is to look for good trades or dealer auctions where a cheaper access to capital exists.
