Our Story

Kid-toting, cargo-friendly strollers were the orignal inspiration behind our VOOMcart.  Power-walking while we ran errands kept us fit, connected and happy. It wasn't until the kids outgrew the strollers and we were back in our cars, that we realized how trapped we felt in traffic and how much we missed our regular walks. We wanted our wheels back but there was no way we were going the route of a granny cart.  That was when we decided to create VOOMcart.

We have spent the last few years designing, engineering and testing prototypes to deliver an innovative solution to inspire active transportation.

 

Our hope is that a simple, efficient and stylish new design will inspire millions of people to walk more. We want to start a revolution around the oldest, and cleanest, form of transportation there is.

Chief Operating Officer

I'm thrilled to join the dynamic team at VOOMcart after suddenly finding my new career as a professional world traveller/flight attendant on hold. I'm excited to draw on my communications skills honed at companies such as Conde Nast, Hearst, Weddingbells and The YMCA of Greater New York to promote a very different but equally vital mode of transportation and travel.
