Kansas City Public Schools (KCPS) has awarded a five year contract to Zūm, the leader in modern student transportation, to deliver efficient and modern transportation to local families.


Through Zum, KCPS students, families, drivers and school administrators will receive state-of-the-art service and peace of mind that comes from enhanced safety features, transparency and increased technology.


“School transportation plays a significant role in children’s lives, and we are privileged to be partnering with Kansas City’s school community,” said Ritu Narayan, Founder and CEO at Zum. “We look forward to working with them starting in the 2024-25 school year to deliver safe, efficient and more equitable service.”


“Zum’s proven track record, along with its enhanced communication and equity-focused decision making, will greatly benefit our students, families and drivers in Kansas City,” said Dr. Jennifer Collier, superintendent of Kansas City Public Schools. “We appreciate their commitment to safety, efficiency, transparency, and student-centered approach, and are excited to partner with them.”


Zum manages and operates student transportation in Massachusetts, Maryland, California, Washington, Texas, Illinois, and Tennessee, with significant operations launching this year in Nebraska, Pennsylvania, Virginia and Connecticut.
