A COMPREHENSIVE APPROACH

SMART MOBILITY SOLUTIONS FOR CITIES OF TOMORROW

Our cities are growing rapidly and we're seeing more cars on the road than ever. Schools are the second largest contributor to rush hour traffic. We cannot build our way out of this problem. With the help of technology, we create smart mobility solutions for the entire community.

PikMyKid influences end-user behavior to mitigate peak traffic, rather than building additional infrastructure. Studies prove that PikMyKid has reduced traffic congestions & carbon footprint while increasing carpooling & walkers.

Comprehensive School Dismissal - Research Report

Several schools in Tampa Bay using PikMyKid were surveyed in this study. Many of these have 41.9% of the cars picking up 2 or more children & 19% of the cars pick up 3 or more children in 2018 (Jan-Dec). 72,010 students dismissed in 2018 in cars out of which 30,095 are traveling groups of 2 or more. This was a significant improvement from baseline studies

Transportation innovation in the media

 Transportation Agency Partners With School Ride App Company

“Gridlock, absolutely,” is how Michael Case describes the school commute in the Tampa Bay area. That traffic trouble is why the Tampa Bay Area Regional Transportation Authority (TBARTA) — where Case is principal planner and project manager — announced a $115,000 partnership with PikMyKid Wednesday.

How Cross-Sector Partnerships Are Fueling Innovation

TAMPA — When a teacher plunked the wrong kid in his car at school pickup time a few years ago, Pat Bhava was infuriated. But the Tampa father’s anger quickly dissipated when he realized the teachers didn’t have the resources they needed to properly manage the process.

One Challenge Program to Austin, Detroit and Indianapolis

A few years ago, “Pat” Bhava was shocked to realize he had driven away from his daughter’s school with an unknown student in the backseat — a student a teacher mistakenly sent to his car instead of his own daughter. This shocking experience may be an extreme example,

IDLE FREE INITIATIVE AT SCHOOLS

We at PikMyKid support and provide the right tools for 'Idle Free Initiatives' in schools across the country. We owe it to our children to minimize their exposure to harmful exhaust fumes every day during dismissal.

PURPOSE

As a part of this initiative, we intend to reduce student and driver exposure to vehicle exhaust by limiting unnecessary idling of school buses and other vehicles to improve the health of students and others on the school campus. 

RATIONALE

Exhaust from idling school buses, delivery, and personal vehicles can accumulate and pose a health risk to children, drivers and the community at large. Exposure to exhaust can cause lung damage, respiratory problems and exacerbate asthma and existing allergies; long-term exposure is thought to increase the risk of lung cancer. Automobile exhaust leads to ground-level ozone formation, acid rain, and other forms of air pollution. 

APPLICABILITY

All schools using school buses and carline pickups during daily dismissals are susceptible to idling pollution. Young kids waiting outside schools during dismissals are most at risk.
