My Kid Shuttle - My Kid Shuttle
Since its inception in 2007, student transport service My Kid Shuttle has continued to increase its clientele in communities nationwide across 35 cities. Owner and original operator Laura Smith founded My Kid Shuttle to provide relief for busy parents in the Denton, Texas, area who required the safe transportation of their children to and from various scholastic and extracurricular activities. Now licensed by entrepreneurs across the nation via the Start a Kid Shuttle program, My Kid Shuttle strives to lower the number of children left unsupervised after school and ensure access to events and activities previously prohibited by time constraints.
A Criminology major at the University of Montana, Laura Smith practiced human resources for nearly 12 years before starting My Kid Shuttle. The rapid success of My Kid Shuttle quickly garnered attention from parents in other cities across the country requiring these services locally. Under the Start a Kid Shuttle program, Ms. Smith sells licensing for the My Kid Shuttle business model to entrepreneurs seeking to start a similar small business.
My Kid Shuttle licensees provide numerous benefits to their communities. Children in areas covered by Start a Kid Shuttle businesses now have greater access to activities they might have missed due to transportation complications, lessening stress in parents and families operating on a full schedule. My Kid Shuttle's transportation professionals offer shuttle operations that also benefit child-oriented businesses that may now provide more immediate after-school service.
