School bus operators can purchase monthly subscriptions for vehicle telematics bundle packages that include hardware, installation, activation, around-the-clock support and lifetime hardware warranties. The packages start at $20 per month and require no up-front capital expense, the company said.
The base package includes Zonar's V3 telematics control unit and the cloud-based Ground Traffic Control management system that includes HD-GPS bus tracking, path reports, idle time monitoring, speeding alerts and more. Additional features including remote diagnostics, driver performance, student ridership reporting, Medicaid reimbursement reporting, driver time and attendance, electronic bus trip inspections and parental apps to realize increased safety and efficiency from the solutions.
"Bundled packages for pupil transportation provide both districts and contractors a quick and easy way to begin realizing the benefits of Zonar's leading telematics and ridership reporting system, with the ability to scale the solution over time," said Chris Oliver, Zonar's chief marketing officer.
Zonar is presenting a webinar on June 26 titled "An Introduction to School Bus Fleet Telematics" to provide more information.
"Pupil transportation always has been and always will be at the core of our business, and we are very happy to be able to provide school bus fleets with our proven solutions at a lower cost than ever before," added Oliver.
