The largest and fastest growing ride share company for schools and families

Zum is modernizing student transportation for 4,000+ schools and districts. It brings student transportation into the modern era with a commitment to transparency, safety and reliability.

Proprietary algorithms consider customers needs, then pair each child with the right driver and right vehicle. Routes are adjusted in real-time to account for absent students or traffic issues.

The school dashboard and Zūm parents app allows everyone to track rides in a map view from start to finish. Parents can know exactly when the driver leaves for a ride, picks up and drops off a child.

Thousands of schools are currently covered by Zum and more than 5 million safe miles driven.

Zum was founded by CEO Ritu Narayan, a young immigrant mother who struggled to advance her career while making sure her two kids had trustworthy and reliable care. Listen to Narayan’s story about building what she hopes will be the world’s largest and most trusted platform for transportation and care for school children.
