Z PassTM Student Rider Visibility Increase Rider Safety and Accountability
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Powerful ridership reporting helps improve routing, ridership balancing and federal reporting – including Medicaid.
