And with bicycle sharing being such a great success, buggy sharing could become equally popular. That pushed Frank Verheijden to turn his idea into a business venture. Buggybooker was launched in 2014 as a buggy sharing system. The system was thoroughly tested with a test buggy in cooperation with the City of Leuven.
Users rated the market potential as quite high. On the one hand, there are many grandparents who take their grandchildren out and appreciate the convenience of Buggybooker. On the other, young parents’ outlook on leisure has changed. Time has become a scarce and much-valued commodity, and young people want to enjoy it in optimum comfort, hassle-free.
