Are you juggling lifts to school, sport and extra-mural activities and struggling to get to everything? Then our new ride share service is your solution. Parents that are unable to fetch and/or drop off their children can connect with parents that are already making the trip, in the same community.
View all available rides for a specific day and decide who your child will be traveling with. You can pre-book trips and share the details with your child.
If you are driving, you can create a trip and help other parents in your community.
You can track the trip on a map at any time and will receive notifications alerting you when your child has been picked up and dropped off.
All drivers are also part of the school community. They are parents you greet when dropping off your child at school or standing next to you at a game cheering on the team that both your kids play in.
If your child is a rider you will need to load your credit or debit card details onto the app. You will see what the trip costs before you accept, only once a trip is completed will your money be deducted. Trips are charged at R12 for the first 4km’s, and R3/km thereafter.
As a driver, you will see what the amount is that you will receive for the trip before accepting the Zipalong (child making the trip with you). The money will be paid into your account by the 7th of the following month in which you have completed the trips.
If you are the driver you need to make sure that you give Zipalong permission to share your location. Go to Settings > Notifications > d6 Connect, make sure Zipalong, Zipalong Trip, Zipalong Trip Tracking and Zoho SalesIQ are all set to “allowed”.
45% goes to a registered PDP driver with a vehicle that has an Operating Licence 10% goes to the insurance 24% goes to zipalong 5% goes to the school (in the case where the driver offers a trip without remuneration, a bigger portion will go to the school) 16% goes to the bank for transaction fees
