Optimize your EV fleet.

Electric school buses need to earn their purchase price. Make informed decisions for each one—faster—by managing your EVs next to your other school buses using Zonar Ground Traffic Control®, our secure online portal.

Increase range awareness and use each electric school bus to its best advantage with one comprehensive, real-time view of your entire fleet.

  • See where each electric bus is located in real time.
  • Dispatch electric buses based on their current state-of-charge (SoC).
  • Optimize their routes by reviewing trip history, including stop-by-stop analysis.
  • View how much battery each route consumes.
  • Identify EVs that aren’t charged as planned, so you can nip potential inefficiencies and issues in the bud.

Electrify your fleet with leading OEM hardware.

Bring us your bus and trust the data being captured. The OEM-grade Zonar V4™ telematics control unit (TCU) already supports leading manufacturers.

  • Lion Electric Co.
  • Blue Bird®
  • IC Bus
  • Thomas Built Buses

See the EV’s real-time location, historical path, individual starts and stops, as well as OEM-specific data such as SoC.
