A ride sharing app just for children

- Would you use the new ride sharing app Bubbl? It’s more than convenient: it’s the safest ride around. And it’s meant just for children.

For busy parents who want to send someone they can trust to do pick ups and drop offs, there aren’t always a lot of options. But what Bubbl is offering could be even safer than riding with Mom and Dad: off-duty and former police officers chauffeuring your child in a camera equipped car.

The cars are all owned and insured by the company, and the system’s set up to send text alerts to parents at every stage of the journey.

Said Carrie Jewel, a parent who uses the service, “This has really helped me be able to pre-plan and feel good about who I’m allowing my son to get in the car with.”

Each ride is $15, with an extra $5 for every additional student. And it comes with at least one unexpected perk. Jewel’s son explained, “It was fun. Not like in the family car with everyone yelling and screaming.”

So there’s peace of mind for the parents and the child. Who knew there was an app for that? Right now the service is only available in Dallas, but is expecting to expand. Would you use it in your city?
