Transportation will move to a new student scanning system for the 2015/2016 School Year. The Zonar student scanning system is a RFID type scanner which will require a seperate bus pass to be carried by students.
Z Pass: Student Ridership Tracking
School Bus Student Tracking
Z Pass is designed specifically for school transportation to track and monitor student ridership in a safe and non-intrusive way. Knowing if and when a student got on or off the bus accounts for a significant portion of calls parents make to schools and is information that schools need to know. Z Pass provides accurate and immediate answers.
Just What Schools Have Been Asking For
Zonar has succeeded where others have not by using its patented Radio Frequency Identification Device (RFID) technology to solve the problem. Students carry a small card that contains passive RFID technology that logs each student’s entry or exit automatically when the student passes the scanner located on the school bus.
Load and Unload Process Stays the Same
Customers say it works because Z Pass requires no action on the part of drivers or students, other than to carry the card. Z Pass delivers the required performance without impeding the normal loading and unloading process. It’s a true win/win/win/win for school officials, drivers, students and parents.
