As the industry leader, First Student has been an advocate for new industry standards and innovative passenger ridership technologies. With ZPass™, schools can now monitor the date, time and location of their students enter and exit from the bus.
Safe, Non-Intrusive Ridership Monitoring
ZPass™, powered by Zonar®, provides safe, non-intrusive ridership monitoring, allowing school administrators to enhance ridership efficiencies, as well as accurately and cost-effectively respond to a call about a child's status with bus entry and exit data.
Secure Web-Based Reporting:
Makes it fast and easy to access accurate information.
Stamps time and date for all loading and unloading activities by student.
Provides all student ridership data by bus.
How It Works
Each student is issued a unique ID card to carry, which they scan when entering and exiting his or her school bus. With each scan, the time, date and location is logged and transmitted to a secure database.
School administrators can access this data via a web-browser with Zonar's Ground Traffic Control application. Information by bus or student can be downloaded for additional monitoring and analysis.
