A new mobile app, created in Belgium, wants to make it easier for parents to have a community of trustworthy drivers to help them carpool their children to school every morning.
Koalift works through schools and sports centers choosing to use the application and selecting the parent-drivers themselves. Working with an interactive map, registered parent-drivers enter their route and their departure time, after which parents and parent-drivers communicate through an online chat system.
The total cost to use the app amounts to 300 euros per year. This fee is paid for by the school or sports center, with no user fee for the parents.
“Our partner schools and clubs have to take the initiative to create a community. Once parents are interested, they must register, and it’s the school’s directory that accepts their application or not. This prevents strangers or people outside the network from being on the platform,” added Camille De Bruyn, Co-Founder of Koalift, reported New Mobility.
“We offer our services to schools and sports clubs to provide a mobility solution that inspires confidence among parents,” explained De Bruyn.
