Omaha Public Schools Awards $100+M Transportation Contract to Zum

We are pleased to announce that Omaha Public Schools has awarded a $100+ million, five-year transportation contract to Zum.

With this decision, the district has chosen safer, greener and more reliable transportation services for its more than 50,000 students, as well as drivers, families and school administrators. Through Zum, Omaha’s school community will receive state-of-the-art service and peace of mind that comes from enhanced safety features, transparency and increased technology.

“As a mother who struggled for years with getting my two children safely to and from school, I started Zum to change the status quo and ensure no child gets left behind because of insufficient student transportation,” said Ritu Narayan, Founder and CEO at Zum. “We are delighted to partner with Omaha Public Schools to ensure that every student and family has access to the safe, reliable, modern and efficient transportation services they deserve.”Â

“Our priority is safe and reliable trips to and from school,” said Trevis Sallis, executive director of student transportation at Omaha Public Schools. “We look forward to partnering with Zum for the students and families we serve.”

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.

We are excited to welcome Omaha Public Schools as our newest district partner!
