While most parents find us through schools, or by searching online for transportation, a few heard about us from an unlikely source-their building management. In fact, Buggy has been approached by numerous luxury apartment towers in Miami over the past year to help market their units.
Many of the Brickell and Miami Beach condos saw a surge in sales during the pandemic, with New Yorkers and other Northeasterners eager to relocate. These families often come without the support system they had back home. Not to mention they are used to dense cities like New York, where your life can be contained to a 10 block radius. The thought of navigating a spread-out city like Miami is intimidating to any newcomer, traffic notwithstanding.
When you consider where the luxury Miami condos are situated with respect to the top private schools, it makes sense why their management is reaching out. Buggy can be a huge asset in convincing prospective owners to buy into their building. Buyers can move in knowing that their child’s transportation is taken care of. They can enjoy the benefits of living in one of these condos---close commerce, nightlife, and culture--without the burden of a long school commute.
Eventually, through partnerships with large condo buildings, Buggy can start to build express routes to popular schools. It’s already happening on a smaller scale, with buildings in Brickell Key and Downtown offering Buggy to their tenant, and we can really see that relationship flourishing.
In an ideal world, we can all live close to both work and school, but the realities of life are often very different. That’s why Buggy aims to provide a solution that makes life convenient for families, so they can choose where they want to live without worrying about the impact on their children’s education.
