We pay $2500-$2700 year for door to door service. No worry about missing the bus or wondering if they made it. Parents get a call if they aren’t there (never had one though). Excellent piece of mind and no hassle doing the school drop off. Worth every cent!!
I would sell my sole not to do the school run. Though the kids need to be taken to the class and supervised until the bell went.
I would love this service. Would absolutely do it if they offered this in our area. I'd be happy to pay $50 a week for this service.
This business idea would go great in Newcastle at the moment. We have had a major bus timetable change over the summer holidays and now there are reports of kids who travel 2 hours each way to school including extra walking time, two buses and waiting time in between the buses. My hairdresser has to drive her kids to school now as their usual bus has been cancelled. The other options are 3 buses (55 minutes), two trains and a bus(1h 5min) or two buses (1h 15). Last year it took them 20 minutes on one bus.
This would be great. My kids have either a 45 minute walk or 1.5 hours on the bus. I don't think it's fair to zone kids in schools that don't have public transport.
What is it exactly? A chartered bus just for your kids? Or a bus that already picks kids up and you just want your kids included?
I think this would be good especially for those kids who get bullied on school buses.
If the bus picked up and dropped off at the students house then I'd say you would be looking at $20 a week from me. That's about all I could afford to be honest.
You'd need to look at maybe a pro rata cost if a child only used it a couple of times a week and if leave at least one seat as Ann emergency seat for someone who needs a lift
