Taking It To The Streets

Children's Taxi Service

With all the two-income families nowadays, there are many parents more than willing to pay for a safe, reliable form of transportation for their kids. Child-transportation services involve delivering children to and from school and other activities such as day care, soccer practice, dance rehearsals and orthodontist appointments. Most companies set the riders up on a monthly-fee basis, charging about $100 to $200 per month for one trip per day and $200 to $300 for round trips, based on a five-day week. To start such a service, you need a reliable van with enough seating to accommodate at least six passengers. The van must be adequately insured and should have a cellular phone so you can communicate with parents regarding scheduling delays and changes.
