The two Massachusetts-based companies are working together to ensure athletes can safely and securely get to and from their coaching sessions.
Cambridge & Newton, MA – CoachUp, a Newton-based company that connects athletes with private coaches, is partnering with Cambridge-based startup Zemcar, the safest rideshare for families on the go, to make it easier for parents to get their athletes to and from private coaching sessions.
Now when CoachUp clients receive confirmation of their coaching session, they will be linked to Zemcar’s services in the event the athlete needs a ride. Parents can then use the Zemcar app to identify their preferred drivers and schedule rides in advance, making it easy for families to fit in getting to and from their coaching sessions.
“We are excited to be partnering with CoachUp,” said Juliette Kayyem, CEO and Co-Founder of Zemcar, adding “I have used CoachUp with my kids and know first-hand that transportation can be a major pain point. This partnership will make it easier for parents to solve that problem.”
“Coordinating busy schedules between coaches, players and parents is a challenge we often see,” said CoachUp CEO, John Kelley. “We view our partnership with Zemcar as an opportunity to provide a seamless and trusted solution for parents balancing many demands for their time.”
Zemcar, the safest rideshare for families on the go, connects busy parents with qualified drivers to solve their family’s transportation needs. Founded in Boston, Zemcar has the industry’s first in-ride live stream and is the only rideshare company in Massachusetts insured to transport unaccompanied minors. A scheduled rideshare service, Zemcar provides peace of mind by allowing parents to select from a pool of trusted drivers that undergo an enhanced screening and education process.
