eCabs is adding school transport as a new service line to its mobility solutions portfolio.
Putting safety, professionalism and comfort first, the company says that the service, with a fleet of highly sanitised vehicles dedicated to the school run, was very well received by parents
“Once again we are raising the bar. We are humbled by the response of the parents who chose to trust their children in eCabs’ hands, confirming the high regard there already exists about our health and safety standards,” says Simon Debono, Chief Marketing Officer at eCabs.
“Unlike traditional school runs, we are also offering the service of collection and drop-off outside the children’s home, rather than the traditional meeting-point, translating into more convenience but even more safety for the children to remain within the proximity of their home until picked up.”
eCabs’ fleet procedures include an intensive sanitisation process, while all drivers are equipped with disinfectant sprays and wipes to constantly sanitise all high touch areas within the vehicle.
Each vehicle is taking fewer children than the maximum capacity to avoid overcrowding, improving safety and respecting social distancing provisions within the van. 8-seater vans are carrying up to 6 children while 16 seaters are limiting the number of passengers to 11.
The drivers have been given specialised one-to-one training related to the varying guidelines and requirements of the different schools, and attendance is being taken per trip to further ensure the safety and tracing of the children on each trip.
“As a parent, I know all too well that when it comes to school transport, we want the peace of mind that our children are on time for school and back home afterwards in the safest hands possible,” added Mr Debono.
