Ramona Unified School District Transportation Department
to the 2016-2017 School Year!
The 2016-2017 school year brings exciting changes to the Transportation Department. We will be implementing a new school bus pass system, called a ZPass. The ZPass will have a new look and updated safety features. It will include electronic scanning capabilities that are integrated only with RUSD, allowing the Transportation Department to know when your child has entered and exited the bus.
As with the introduction of all new technology, the process is offering us the opportunity to review our processing procedure. While the software is being refined, it may take a few months before all bus riders are enrolled in the new system and issued a ZPass. However, all students will begin the school year with at least a temporary bus pass.
It is important for us to ensure that each and every student arrives at the correct bus stop for school-to-home drop off. If you have a Kindergarten, first grade, or newly enrolled student, we must be aware of that and you will need to come into the Bus Pass office to receive your pass. For your child’s safety, do not put your child on a school bus unless they have either the ZPass or a temporary bus pass and have a clear understanding of the location of their bus stop.
Your child should be prepared to show either their temporary pass or the ZPass upon entrance of their bus.
We hope that these new features provide you with additional confidence that the safety of your child continues to be our top priority. We look forward to yet another year of safe school bus transportation.
