If you are a parent, your utmost priority is your child’s safety wherever they are. And sometimes, because of the busy schedule, parents tend to not have enough time for their kids, even just by dropping their kids to school. Good news is that there is Grab where anyone’s safety is ensured. You can book grab in advance and you can even track the car’s location while your kid’s on travel.
In the year 2017, Grab, the leading ride-hailing platform in Southeast Asia, entered in to an agreement with mifold, the world leader in the ultra-compact portable child car seat category, to enhance child passenger safety in private-hire vehicles and provide more inclusive shared transportation services. Under the partnership, all GrabCar vehicles will be equipped with the advanced, compact and portable mifold Grab-and-Go child booster seats, and be part of the GrabFamily fleet.
The country is very proud of this because they pioneer the GrabFamily which is the first child friendly policy hire car service operated by drivers who are trained to support family. https://schipholtaxi.xyz is also starting to implement the advance booking of taxi.
Why Should You Use GrabFamily
Accidents are inevitable especially when there is a traffic which is why road traffic injuries are one of the leading contributors of childhood injuries in Singapore and even in other countries. In an interview with Elise Mawson, the founder and expert Child Passenger Safety Technician Instructor of Taxi Baby Co., she stated that:
“Children are not simply small versions of adults and they cannot be adequately protected in a road traffic accident with an adult seat belt, a fabric baby carrier, or an adult’s arms.”
Every day, large number of children in Singapore rely on Grab to get around safely. According to the Land Transport Authority (LTA), all passengers below 1.35 metres must be belted up with age-appropriate child restraint devices when travelling in a private-hire vehicle. It indeed can be seen that Grab is after the safety of passenger, especially kids, in Singapore. Even though SG is only the country that has this kind of program, I believe that in the future, other countries will its benefits and implement it as well.
