Every stop-arm violation is one too many.

Violators fund BusPatrol and Zonar technology, not you.

During the 2018-2019 school year, more than 17 million stop-arm violations occurred throughout the U.S.—an increase of 2 million violations over the previous year. With a shared mission to protect student riders, BusPatrol and Zonar have partnered to offer an exclusive, comprehensive school bus safety technology package to safeguard your entire fleet and enhance its operations. Plus, funds to pay for it come from stop-arm violators, not you.

Your choice of smart fleet management packages

Student rider safety depends on having a safe, efficient fleet. In addition to BusPatrol’s stop-arm enforcement program, you have a choice between two custom Zonar school bus fleet management packages. Fleet management packages include:

  • high-definition GPS fleet tracking
  • fleet management mobile app and alerts
  • truly verifiable electronic inspection reporting
  • ruggedized driver tablets
  • advanced diagnostics and reporting

Premium upgrades also available: parent-facing mobile app, real-time dashcam driver coaching, student ridership visibility and verification, employee time and task management, and fleet health and predictive maintenance tools.

Let’s change the culture of driving.

Fines for stop-arm violations prevent repeat offenses and reduce the risk to student riders—but issuing fines isn’t enough. We need to change how drivers think and behave. Through stop-arm enforcement programs, we can work together to create a culture of awareness and responsibility.

98% of violators who receive a ticket because they were caught by a stop-arm camera don’t do it again.

How it works.

BusPatrol handles violation ticket processing, maintenance and program management. When stop-arm violators pay their fines, BusPatrol uses that money to cover the hardware, installation and service costs of BusPatrol’s and Zonar’s solutions. The entire comprehensive bus safety technology package is made possible through BusPatrol’s violator-funded school bus safety program.
