Zum to Hold Bus Driver Hiring Fair for Reading School District

Zūm will host its fourth school bus driver hiring event for Reading School District (RSD) on Thursday, June 20, 2024, from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. at the Residence Inn (45 Berkshire Ct., Wyomissing, PA 19610).

RSD, which recently entered into a five-year transportation contract with Zum, is hiring 120 school bus drivers and attendants to serve families beginning in the 2024-25 school year. Existing school bus drivers as well as anyone considering a new career are encouraged to attend.

Zum offers higher wages, guaranteed hours and modern benefits for all drivers and staff, as well as top-of-the-line air-conditioned buses, equipment and technology. Advanced training and certification programs include extensive ongoing training in transporting students with diverse needs and disabilities. 

“We take pride in how much we value drivers at Zum, and we’re excited to expand our team in Reading in preparation for the upcoming school year,” said Ritu Narayan, Founder and CEO at Zum. “We hope certified drivers as well as anyone interested in a rewarding new career serving this welcoming school community will attend this event.”

“We are excited to partner with Zum to ensure safe, reliable, and sustainable transportation for our students,” said Dr. Jennifer Murray, Reading School District Superintendent. “Prioritizing the safety of Reading’s students during their commutes is our top priority, and an important first step is hiring a team of experienced, local drivers.”

Anyone interested in driving or who knows someone interested that cannot attend one of Zum’s hiring events can apply here.
