Zūm

Zūm is a company that partners with schools to provide transportation for children.

Zum founder and CEO Ritu Narayan launched the company in 2015 specifically for parents making individual bookings for their children, but in 2016 the company started its school program. As of February 2019, the company partnered with 150 school districts including more than 2,000 private, public, and charter schools. Schools sign a contract with Zūm for one or multiple years to cover both daily transportation and ad hoc needs. Schools only pay for booked rides. Parents can track rides in real time. Prior to the ride, parents can view the driver's profile.
