Rent a stroller is very helpful for parents or a parent in many ways. Lots of times we often want to stop at a event in the city but can't stop and enjoy the festivities because we forgot the stroller at home or simply just don't have one. Rent a stroller will save many parents time and money.

Hey Thomas Mitchell thanks for submitting your proposal! I'm with the Facilitation team here at City:One. Just a heads up that I couldn't get onto your website to get some more info. A couple of questions in the meantime. Where will you "hold" the strollers? Around the sidewalks like scooters, designated locations like bicycle programs, or a brick and mortar? Also, could there be long-term rentals that are economically feasible (say, for parents who do not want to own strollers, but use them for the summer months)?

Boratha Tan Hi thanks for reaching out to me about my proposal. I will hold the strollers in a mini both that lifts up. The mini booths will protect the strollers from rain and debris. I would like to set them up in high populated areas like side walks,parks,inside museums,river walks, etc. yes like scooters and bikes are set up. yes long time rentals and of course short time rentals as well. Wow it seems we are really on the same page far as my plan. A summer month program would really work. I also would like to create a app to let families know where the strollers are available. Two different colors for boys and girls. I prefer to have the strollers unfold able to lower the risk of theft.
