Is it necessary for my child to have a cell phone?

It is not necessary for your child to have a mobile phone, but if your child does carry a mobile phone and has installed the Zūm Kids App, he or she will be notified via text message when the driver is within 100 meters of the pickup location. Your child can also view details of their upcoming rides and driver profiles in the Kids App. If your school or district is using Zum RFID cards, your child can check in and out of rides using the digital RFID card available in the Kids App.
