Design your new normal with smart fleet management technology that protects everyone’s health and safety. Drivers, students and parents will get back to school life with greater peace of mind.
Ensure sanitization procedures are followed
Regardless of distancing measures put in place for school buses, many students may not realize the importance of following hygiene practices. Standardize thorough cleaning protocols and verify that they’re being followed. Our patented Electronic Verified Inspection Reporting (EVIR®) system features a configuration that streamlines the process of following complex, detailed sanitization procedures.
- Comply with the FTA’s safety advisory to execute all routine cleaning and surface disinfection.
- Document which areas are sanitized, at what time, and by who.
- Monitor cleaning routines to standardize methods and maximize efficiency.
- Document the type of disinfectant used.
Screen drivers for symptoms before every shift
Have drivers complete a quick health questionnaire using our new Employee Symptom Checker on Zonar Forms™.
- Understand each driver's health and well-being.
- Know each driver’s current temperature.
- Reduce risk of exposure for everyone they come into contact with.
Drivers use their own tablet to complete the digital form. Each questionnaire is timestamped and uploaded to Zonar Ground Traffic Control® for secure, online recordkeeping. Authorized personnel then access the records online. No shared contact points.
Save fuel and reduce costs
Zonar enables you to chart calculable improvements, showing where you increased efficiency and reduced costs. Dispatch and administration can review data through real-time reports and dashboards, or receive a text or email notification if drivers are idling, speeding, or in the wrong place, so dangerous and wasteful behavior are stopped immediately.
