Why Do I Need MommyTaxi™?

Easy. You need MommyTaxi™ because it will save you time and aggravation. MommyTaxi™ was created and developed by a mom and dad team, with years of carpooling experience!

Instead of scrolling up and down your address book every time you need to talk or text someone in the carpool, putting together cumbersome text groups, or trying to remember which child “belongs” to what adult (parent, relative, guardian, etc.), you can now have all that information organized and available for you to use (call and/or text) with just a couple of keystrokes.

MommyTaxi™ is especially useful when you’re part of multiple carpools, be it because you have more than one child, or your child belongs to various carpools (i.e.: one to go to school and back, one for each after-school activity, weekend activities, church groups, etc.)

How Does MommyTaxi™ Work?

In just a few simple steps, MommyTaxi™ users can organize and link the name and cell phone information of every child with that of their parents and/or responsible adults, in order to communicate quickly and effectively when:

- Organizing a carpool

- Notifying adults and/or children of any unforeseen or last-minute changes (i.e.: pick up location, different driver, delays) due to bad weather, road conditions, etc.

- Asking for backup in case of delays or sudden unavailability

- Letting parents know that their children have been dropped off safely at the pre-determined location, thanks to its DropCheck™ function.

In addition, MommyTaxi™ users can track their children’s location via GPS.

How Much Does MommyTaxi™ Cost?

MommyTaxi™ is free. The basic version lets you set up only one carpool. However, if you wish to create multiple carpools, the upgrade is only $1.99… a true bargain considering how much it will improve your daily life.

If you decide to stay with the free version, we ask that you kindly support our advertisers by clicking on their ads. Makes them happy and allows us to offer you this great app at no cost.

How Do I Set Up GPS Track?

GPS Track runs in the “background” of your children’s iphone. In order for it to function, the carpool in your phone and in their phones must be set up identically. Set up their phone in “Child” mode. Enter the carpool information exactly as it is in your phone (set up your phone in “adult” mode). Save the carpool(s) in your children’s phone and exit MommyTaxi™ (the app continues running in the background).

Open the carpool in your iphone and press “View Children.” You will see a radar scope next to the children’s names with GPS Track. Press on the scope and a Google Map will open with a pin indicating their location. When you wish to refresh the screen, go back to “View Children” and repeat. Be aware that because it’s running in the background, GPS Track will consume battery power at a faster rate. If you wish to deactivate it, just change the mode in your child’s iphone to “Adult.”

 I Want to Help My School PTA to Raise Funds. Can MommyTaxi™ Help?

Absolutely. We know first-hand how tight school budgets are (we have two children in public school).

MommyTaxi™ will donate 10% of product sales (before taxes and S&H) to the PTA of your choice (sales of the app are not included, sorry…the App Store won’t allow us to set up a workable system). Contact us at info@MommyTaxi.com

for our registration form. We will add your school to our database. Upon check out, shoppers will be able to select your school from a drop-down menu and your 10% donation will be automatically allocated to it. Share this information with your friends and everyone at school, and encourage them to use it. Every quarter, we will tally the proceeds and send your school its quarterly donation check with absolutely no strings attached…your PTA or school doesn’t have to buy or commit to anything!
