Second Largest U.S. School District Joins National Movement to Transform Student Transportation

Today, we’re announcing that the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) has awarded a transportation contract valued at over $400 million to Zūm. In a huge step forward for the second largest school district in the country (with more than 650,000 students across 1,000 school campuses), we will play a pivotal role in making LAUSD’s student transportation system cleaner, safer, and more equitable for the students and families of Los Angeles County.

Los Angeles County has some of the nation’s worst traffic congestion and cites transportation as the largest contributor to its greenhouse gas emissions. By modernizing LAUSD’s transportation services and working to transition its bus fleet to electric vehicles – as well as by offsetting 100% of carbon emissions in the meantime – we envision a cleaner and greener Los Angeles with equitable learning opportunities for all.

“Zum is at the forefront of a massive transformation in student transportation, helping thousands of schools move away from a one-size-fits-all approach to a modern experience that provides parents, students, drivers and districts with safer, greener, more reliable, transportation services.

With this decision, LAUSD demonstrates its commitment to a future where student transportation advances equity, accessibility and environmental stewardship for the Los Angeles community.”

As we get ready to kick off the 2022-2023 school year, we’re hiring more than 400 drivers in the Los Angeles area and look forward to providing our valued drivers with a job they love, competitive pay, great flexibility, and strong training programs. It is our honor to serve Los Angeles County, and we promise to provide students, families and school districts with superior service and school buses they can rely on every day.

LAUSD is the latest to join Zum’s roster of innovative school districts, including San Francisco, Oakland and Seattle, among others. Read the full press release with today’s news here.
