Prevent breakdowns and maximize uptime.

Zonar FaultIQ Maintenance software

Prevent breakdowns and maximize uptime.

Keep buses on the road more—and in the shop less. Remotely monitor vehicle health and diagnostics online, on a single platform. Identify minor problems and issues early. Know when there’s an impending breakdown before the driver does to keep that bus, and its student riders, off the side of the road.

Zonar’s telematics equipment and Electronic Verified Inspection Reporting (EVIR®) system found on the Zonar 2010, greatly contributed to the success of our transportation initiatives. Paul Osland, Chief of Facilities, Chicago Public Schools
My Zonar Customer Experience representative knows our operation and acts as a one-person clearinghouse for dealing with purchasing, hardware and software upgrades and replacements, and all things customer service. Dr. David Benson, Transportation Director, Chesapeake Public Schools
Before we started using Zonar the only way we could truly know if a driver performed an inspection was after a fresh snowfall. If he or she turned in their paperwork and there weren’t footprints around the bus. Dave Anderson, Director of Transportation, Adams 12 Five Star Schools

Clearly communicate with parents and guardians.

Clearly communicate with parents and guardians.

Serving today’s communities requires modern tools such as Zonar MyView™. Districts use the back-end to clearly communicate directly with parents and guardians. In turn, they use the MyView mobile app to track their child’s school bus, and make sure they got on and off at the right locations.

More peace of mind for them. Fewer parent phone calls for you.

Make every bus, route and drop of fuel count.

Know your fleet operation in detail to uncover new ways of making the most of every resource you have. Track routes and buses to optimize each one. Identify and address idling to prevent fuel waste. And digitally track eligible ridership to maximize Medicaid reimbursement.

Protect everyone’s health with no-contact solutions.

Protect everyone’s health with no-contact solutions.

People need to feel safe about riding the bus—drivers, students and parents. Even if the vehicle is mechanically sound and the driver performs perfectly, what other measures are there to safeguard everyone on board?

  • Standardize and electronically verify bus cleaning protocols.
  • Equip each driver with a tablet to use for every essential task to limit their contact and protect their health.
  • Support contact tracing with digital rider visibility.
  • Use the parent-facing app to easily send COVID-related updates and alerts.
  • Screen drivers for symptoms before every shift with a simple, non-invasive digital questionnaire.
