Crocodile App

Getting your children to school just got a lot easier . . .

The situation

For busy parents, getting children to and from school can often be the most stressful part of the day. And sometimes, when you need to be somewhere else or there’s a domestic crisis to deal with, it can become a serious headache.

Now Crocodile is here to help. It’s a free app that can make the school run easier for you in three different ways . . .

Top 3 project objectives

  • 1

    Book a walking bus

    With Crocodile, you can book your children onto a “walking bus”, to save you time and stress taking them to school.
  • 2

    Find a school-run share

    You can also use Crocodile to arrange “school run sharing” with other parents living near you, whichever way you choose to travel - walking, cycling, scooting or driving.
  • 3

    Connect with parents and teachers

    With Crocodile, you can see all the parents in your neighbour-
    hood who have registered, and instantly connect with them.

The solution

If you haven’t heard the term before, a walking bus is a group of children who walk to school together, supervised by a responsible adult.

There’s a set route, and a timetable, so you can drop o your children at a convenient meeting-point. And while they enjoy a healthy walk to school, you’re free to get on with your day.
