Zonar Expands Ecosystem of Smart Mobility Solutions for Pupil Transportation With Record Growth

| July 26, 2022

New hardware and software product offerings increase school bus safety, efficiency, and accountability

Zonar, the leader in smart fleet technology, today announced record sales growth of its pupil transportation solutions for the first half of 2022, at STN EXPO Reno. Through a combination of hardware and software offerings, Zonar’s smart fleet mobility solutions provide school districts with real-time, actionable data to increase school bus safety, efficiency, and accountability.

Sales for Zonar MyView, an award-winning, real-time bus tracking solution and parent app, increased by 19x from January 2022 to June 2022. MyView serves as a dashboard for school districts to communicate bus changes, delays, or breakdowns. The companion mobile app lets parents see where their child’s bus is located, create zones, and customize alerts. Over the same period, sales increased by 168% for Zonar Z Pass, a real-time ridership tracking solution that puts student safety first. With Z Pass, students scan a passive RFID card to a reader device located inside the bus door as they board and exit, ensuring parents and district officials know exactly who is on the bus, in the event of an emergency.

“Since beginning the rollout of Z Pass across our district in January, our transportation department has been able to see exactly when and where students get on and off the bus, in real time. This has become a vital asset to ensuring student safety, while also improving transparency for parents,” said Mitch Corwin, Assistant Director of Transportation, New Albany-Floyd County School Corporation.

“In partnership with Zonar, we’ve been able to produce and distribute RFID-enabled Z Pass IDs for school districts across the nation—helping them to streamline efficiencies and meet digital transformation goals not only for increased ridership safety, but lunch and library check-out improvements, too,” said Miles Cole, Chief Strategy Officer, CI Solutions.
