Zum's mission is to provide most trustworthy resources to busy parents who feel the pressure to be in two or more places at the same time.
Kids require a lot of attention, and if we ourselves are not available to give that extra care to our kids, we are keen on finding someone who we trust would do a great job.
Hailing a ride for yourself on Uber or Lyft is one thing. But getting your kids around is a different beast – and so far, no one company has been able to bring “on-demand” rides for minors to the masses. Zum is looking to change that with a service that merges transportation and childcare into one on-demand system.
Zum plays to both sides of the child care equation, ensuring child care providers get regular work, while parents only pay for the rides they use rather than hiring a dedicated driver with a guaranteed minimum rate or hours.
