Growing admissions with a convenient home-to-school transport service
For busy parents deciding on a school, transport is an important consideration. A safe, convenient, high-quality home-to-school transport service could be the difference in securing a family.
Fewer parents are choosing to educate their children privately, official figures show private school pupil numbers fell to a five-year low in 2019. To stay competitive and attract more families, schools should consider their transport offering as a tool to positively influence parents when they are making important decisions about their child’s schooling.
Zeelo helps schools do just that by working hand in hand with schools and bus operators, we provide data driven, safe, fully-managed home-to-school transport services.
Designing services for parents and students
Zeelo’s dedicated and experienced team of experts will consider anonymised home postcodes, a parent survey (optional), along with extensive evidence from other services we operate to design a bespoke and convenient service that will encourage usage.
Zeelo carefully considers a parent’s habits and preferences when designing routes to ensure it fits in with their day to day routine. For example, the focus on the distance needed to travel from home/work to their stop along with the ease of access and waiting at the location. These factors were rated as ‘Very Important’ by 8 out of 10 parents using Zeelo services.
Our flexible ticketing and booking platforms allow for services to be accessed by more parents who may not wish to commit to traditional fixed-term ticketing. In partnership with the school, we are able to design and implement a ticket structure to suit the needs of their parent body. On average Zeelo’s schools experience an increase in usage of 10% after launching flexible ticketing while also increasing their revenue by 16%.
