ZONAR BUS PASS (Z PASS)
Z Pass improves the safety and security of pupil and passenger transportation by allowing district transportation personnel to quickly see where and when riders enter and exit buses. This information can be used to help locate a pupil.
 
Pupils carry a passive RFID identification card that they scan on-board 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, providing district transportation personnel Instant access to real-time passenger status information.
