Frequently Asked Questions

Am I insured for transportation of other kids?

Yes! It is compulsory by law to have third party liability insurance in order to use a motor vehicle on a road. Use for car sharing is included in this policy.

Are parents and students from different schools going to be mixed?

Parents register on Bumalift to schools with a unique token provided by their school. Our mobile app only matches users from the same school and locality in order for the carpooling initiatives to be set up the easiest way possible.

How do I know if there are parents in my locality?

Bumalift works by searching for users in your proximity and as a result, you will automatically be matched to other parents going to the same school. Should you be the first carpooler in your area, you will be notified once another user located closeby join in.

If I join Bum a Lift, am I required to follow a schedule?

No, Bumalift is built to empower the parents to decide on their own schedule.

Am I required to travel long distances to pick up other parents' children?

Bumalift leaves the carpooling initiative setup in the hands of the parents and no one is ever obliged to do anything without their own consent. Very often parents do not have to travel more than 5 minutes to pick up other children, however in less popular localities it might be required to travel a bit more. Parents are also able to reach a compromise, for example dropping off the children at the other parent's house or at a nearby bus stop.

Am I too late to join?

Bumalift is available for parents throughout the entire scholastic year. If there are parents in your locality who are still looking for a ride, then it is very possible that you may carpool together.

I am unable to give my fair share of rides, am I still able to join?

Bumalift is a user-based platform with ordinary users being the decision makers. Therefore we do not place any restrictions on having a tit-for-tat system but leave it in the hands of our users. Most users are not concerned that it has to be a perfectly equal system, however the more people contribute the more likely for it to be successful.
