There are numerous advantages of Private Taxi Hire in our day-to-day lives, one of which being the school run. However, if you’re sceptical about using a taxi to take your children to school, here’s a quick list of 5 things to consider.

5 Reasons Why You Should Use A Taxi For School Transport

  1. Provides Your Child With A Relaxing Car Journey
    Sending your children to school in a taxi gives them time to relax in the morning before school. Instead of setting off early to walk to school, they can take time to enjoy a healthy breakfast and relax, which could help them to reduce their stress levels, making their school day and their learning more affective.

  2. A Good Alternative For Days With Bad Weather
    If your child normally walks to school, rain or snow can be a real bother, as such it is always helpful to have the number of a reliable Private Taxi Hire business so you can organise an alternative method for your children.

    Loddon Cars also has a downloadable app that you can use to book taxi travel for your children. This app enables you to securely pay with your credit or debit card, and provides you with peace of mind when organising your child’s lift to school, as you’ll also receive up-to-date notifications on the taxi’s estimated time of arrival thanks to our tracked vehicles.

  3. Gives Your Child A Sense Of Independence
    If you child would like some more independence and go to school without their parents, but a school bus isn’t an option, you could choose to let them to walk to school. However, what if they get lost?

    With taxi travel from Loddon Cars, a skilled and experienced taxi driver will take care of your transportation needs. This way, your child doesn’t need to know the way to and from school, because our highly-skilled and knowledgeable team are on hand to provide a pleasant and comfortable taxi experience.
  4. Avoid Trip Hazards Whilst Walking
    Whilst tripping and falling over may seem like a trivial injury, it has the potential to be very serious. Injuries resulting from a trip accident could include broken ankles or other bones, damage to the knee, or muscle and ligament tears or strains. The most common causes of tripping injuries are obstructions on walkways or uneven surfaces. All it takes is some ice on the pavement, or wind from the night before to obstruct the pathway and a trip hazard could be formed.
  5. More Reliable Than Public Transport
    There are many advantages of using a private taxi instead of public transport such as a public bus or train service. The delays and cancelations of trains are frequently discussed on social media and in the news; can you really take that chance with your child’s education? A delay of just 10 minutes every day will over the course of a week amount to nearly an hour. Instead of that time being spent in the classroom learning and preparing them for the world, they are sat waiting for the train to take them to school.
