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.
