5 Car Features That Make It Easier to Carpool Kids to School

Toyota Features for School Carpooling

Carpooling offers several benefits, but it often comes with a few difficulties too. Thankfully, there are many car features that can make carpooling easier on parents. From getting the attention of boisterous kids to keeping the entire crew safe and entertained, these five features will minimize your stress on trips to and from school.

  1. Toyota Driver Easy Speak
    Need to talk over a loud group of kids? Toyota’s Driver Easy Speak feature could become your new best friend. The feature uses a built-in microphone to pick up your voice and project it through the rear speakers. There are several available volume settings and the feature is easy to control through a touch-screen display.

  2. Multi-Zone Air Conditioning
    With a multi-zone A/C and heating system, such as tri-zone climate control on the Toyota Sienna, backseat passengers can adjust the temperature in their specific area. This feature ensures the comfort of everyone in each seating position whether they’re in front or back.

  3. HD Radio
    There are over 3,500 digital broadcast programs available through HD radio, making it easy to find a wide range of kid-friendly stations.

  4. Toyota Safety Sense-P
    For parents, we know that child safety is of the utmost importance, and there’s an extra sense of responsibility when you’re driving other people’s children as well. On several Toyota models, you can reduce your worries with a safety suite called TSS-P, which includes technologies such as frontal collision warning with pedestrian detection and lane departure alert.

  5. Rear Seat Entertainment System
    If your commute to school is longer than most, a rear seat entertainment system may come in handy, especially if all the children you’ll be driving are around the same age and likely watch the same type of programming.
