Safe and secure rider reporting

Z Pass improves the safety and security of pupil and passenger transportation by allowing you to quickly see where and when riders enter and exit buses. Use this information to locate a rider, improve routes and utilization, claim unreported pupil Medicaid reimbursement, and integrate with employee timecard systems.

Time, date and location

Riders carry a passive RFID identification card that they scan onboard to log each entry and exit from the bus. The time, date, and location of each scan is logged and transmitted to a secure database for immediate access through Zonar’s Ground Traffic Control. Instant access to real-time rider status information and historical ridership reporting supplies the data you need to make the best decisions about pupil transportation.

Passenger safety

With Z Pass ridership visibility, you always know the location of the bus, who is on the bus, and where and when they entered and exited. In the case of an emergency, you have the information you need at your fingertips to quickly re-route buses, make unplanned stops, or locate specific passengers.

Instant information

Easy, web-based reporting makes it convenient to access information about your riders. Utilize the Bus Report to analyze ridership data by bus or answer parents’ questions regarding the location of their child. Each card is always and only associated to a unique identification number, so no personal information is captured or stored.

Full featured solution

Combined with Zonar’s telematics platform, Z Pass connects ridership information to help you create a safe, efficient operation. Extend the value of Z Pass through integrations and extended features, including Medicaid reimbursement reporting, child check processes, pay-per-ride and timecard systems.

Medicaid reimbursement

Make your Z Pass data work even smarter for you with Zonar’s integrated Medicaid reporting. Eliminate the complexities and audit risk associated with manual reporting and let Z Pass do the heavy lifting. Medicaid reporting is easy with Z Pass and many districts produce a reimbursement revenue stream that more than pays for their Zonar service.

Locate quickly

Use the date, time and location of a child's last entry onto or exit from the bus to speed the search for a missing child.

Ridership reporting

Powerful ridership reporting helps improve routing, ridership balancing and federal reporting – including Medicaid.

From our customers

Zonar allows us to monitor and comply with regulations that state that our buses cannot idle at any location for more than 5 minutes. Zonar not only allows us to comply but allows us to be more environmentally responsible and keep our own costs down... Simply put there isn’t another offering out there as robust as Zonar.
