Zum Hosts Second Driver Hiring Event for Branford Public Schools

In preparation for the 2024-25 school year, Zūm will host a second hiring event for school bus drivers on Monday, April 29, 2024, from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. at the New Haven Hotel (229 George St., New Haven, CT 06510).

Zum is hiring 65 drivers and attendants to serve the families of Branford Public Schools. Certified drivers are encouraged to attend, as well as anyone considering a new career as a school bus driver. Zum pays for training and certification for those who are not yet certified.

Branford Public Schools recently awarded a $60 million, 10-year transportation contract to Zum, which offers higher wages, guaranteed hours and modern benefits for all drivers and staff. Zum provides top-of-the-line buses, equipment, and technology to enhance safety and comfort for students and drivers and make drivers’ day-to-day jobs easier and more enjoyable. Advanced training and certification programs include extensive ongoing training in transporting students with diverse needs and disabilities.

“From our initial meeting, the team at Zum has been personable and has sent a clear message of caring about people,” stated Christopher Tranberg, Superintendent of Branford Public Schools. “We are beyond excited for this new partnership and remain confident that the exceptional team at Zum will deliver innovative transportation services to the Branford Community. We are excited to partner with a company that shares our core values of collaboration and kindness and look forward to welcoming new drivers to the beautiful town of Branford.”

“As we prepare for the coming school year, we are excited to work with Branford Public Schools and build our team of bus drivers,” said Ritu Narayan, Founder and CEO at Zum. “Drivers are at the heart of what we do at Zum, and we are proud to be a choice employer in any city where we have partnerships.”
