What is the Get Home Smart Card?
The Get Home Smart Card is a Taxi Gift Card that provides a Taxi Ride for your loved ones.
The concept of the Get Home Smart Card was created as my son, Bryce, was turning 21. I was concerned about his safety and that he would not make the Smart choice of taking a Taxi home from a night out. I wondered why there wasn't a Gift Card I could give him - that he could ONLY use for a Taxi ride. This is how the idea of the Get Home Smart Card originated.
As the idea grew, we realized there are many layers to this Taxi Card.
* Teens started becoming a huge aspect to the Get Home Smart Card. We realized that Teens feel they have no option but to get in a car with a friend even if they feel uncomfortable. I did a survey at the local high school and over 89% of teens said they would NOT call their parents to pick them up if they were in an "Uncomfortable Situation". This is scary! I am a single Mom of 3 kids and my older 2 kids (ages 24 and 22) told me they would have never called me! Even though I told them they could!
* College Kid's are a large part of our model, so they can travel safe around their campus.
* Adults, we need to change our thought process and use Taxi's if we are going out and have any cocktails. There are many campaigns that tell us to not drive drunk, but we are never told to take a Taxi, we need to change our own mindset.
* Seniors will also benefit from the Get Home Smart Card, giving them a little freedom if they no longer drive and take the pressure off their children who may not be able to bring them to a doctor appointment.
What We Need to LaunchThe Get Home Smart Card is Patent Pending since September 2008 and Trademark. We will have a rewards program to encourage continued use and we will connect to the nearest Taxi Member through the callers phone. All transactions will be done through the smart phone with the Taxi Companies through our APP.
Get Home Smart Card Impact on the Community
We will have a strong impact on the community through education against drunk driving. In High Schools and Colleges we want to educate Teens to know they can "Speak Up" if they are Uncomfortable in someones car and the person is driving erratic. This is our "Bee Smart" Campaign. We will get the community involved in helping us get the word out.
We have always referred to ourselves as a Safety Minded Company and have always approached this as a Safety Campaign.
