Cypress-Fairbanks Independent School District (Cy-Fair ISD) has grown from a sprawling collection of small, wooden, one-room schools in 1941 into today’s third-largest public school district in Texas and the fifteenth largest in the nation. More than 80,000 of the district’s 117,000 students, in grades from elementary to high school, ride the school bus every school day.
Getting these students from Point A to Point B takes five transportation depots and several hundred buses and bus routes. For years, Cy-Fair ISD’s student transportation system managed well enough, but without using telematics or student tracking and rider verification system.
The district’s top priority is student safety. Knowing where they are, making sure they’re safe, giving parents peace of mind. And for that, Cy-Fair ISD turned to Zonar.
Read their story to learn how Cy-Fair partnered with Zonar to identify which students are on which bus at any given time, help drivers identify eligible students board the bus and when students get off the wrong stop, and keep parents informed about their child’s bus and whereabouts.
