  • Alma as a student, has a need to make use of a transport system, that allows her to plan and negotiate with drivers that can accommodate her need, to get to a certain venue under controlled conditions. Bus and taxi services are not well presented, where she resides. Over 3 years of study in the Cape, away from her parents’ home in Gauteng, she really struggled to commute. From this need, SureLifts management system was innovated. The system provides anonymity, security, live control and cost-effectiveness. The SureLifts system will work perfectly for all the private lift clubs, traditional taxi or bus transport services in South Africa and elsewhere.
