School Bus Industry Experts Recognize Zonar Safety and Efficiency Apps MyView and OTAir
Seattle, Wash. – October 5, 2020 - Zonar, the leader in smart fleet technology, today announced that Zonar MyView™ and Zonar OTAir® received the "Most Innovate App" award at the inaugural Bus Technology Summit (BTS), hosted by School Transportation News. Zonar's apps were recognized out of over 24 sponsors showcasing the latest school bus technology.
Zonar MyView provides parents and caregivers full visibility into bus locations, changes and estimated times of arrival of the school buses their children ride on every day. Clear communication about where a child's school bus is gives parents, caregivers and school districts peace of mind. Focused on serving the vehicle side, Zonar OTAir allows fleet managers and drivers who use Zonar telematics services to manage and deliver over-the-air programming to their Cummins engines. Fleets that use Cummins Connected Software Updates receive the latest performance enhancements from Cummins by using OTAir, resulting in reduced downtime, increased cost savings and improved vehicle health – without the need of any additional hardware.
Zonar received the award as a result of an industry vote by over 1,250 Bus Technology Summit participants. Both recognized apps are part of the greater Zonar Mobile Ecosystem™ designed to deliver greater fleet safety, compliance and business efficiencies to the school transportation industry.
