PALO ALTO (CBS SF) — Busy parents in Silicon Valley have a new option to get their busy kids to their after-school activities when Mommy or Daddy can’t get away – a luxury van shuttle service from Mercedes-Benz.

The youth transportation service is called Boost and is available to families in Palo Alto, Los Altos, Menlo Park and Mountain View.

According to Boost, children will get the “deluxe royal treatment” aboard Mercedes-Benz passenger vans with dedicated drivers and concierges.

Backed by the best of Mercedes-Benz, Boost uses award-winning, eco-friendly Mercedes-Benz Sprinter vans, on-board white-glove service from two trained, adult professionals aboard each vehicle, and a real- time view of your child’s trip to deliver a premier experience.

A one-way trip costs $22 with discounts applied to multiple-ride bundles.

Parents can track the shuttle’s progress with an accompanying smartphone app and be alerted when their child is picked up and dropped off.

The service is a product of the luxury automaker’s Research & Development of North America division, which has been based in Palo Alto since 1995.
