Zum Hosts First School Bus Driver Hiring Fair After Selection as Omaha Public Schools Transportation Provider

REDWOOD CITY, Calif. — Following Omaha Public Schools’ selection of Zūm as a transportation partner beginning in August 2024, the company will host hiring events on Wednesday, March 20 and Thursday, March 21, 2024, from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. at the Element Hotel (3253 Dodge Street, Omaha). Certified bus drivers and people considering a new career who have yet to be certified are encouraged to attend.

Through Zum, Omaha’s school community will receive state-of-the-art service and peace of mind that comes from enhanced safety features, transparency and increased technology.

“As a mother who struggled for years with getting my two children safely to and from school, I started Zum to change the status quo and ensure no child gets left behind because of insufficient student transportation,” said Ritu Narayan, founder and CEO at Zum. “We are delighted to partner with Omaha Public Schools to ensure that every student and family has access to the safe, reliable, modern and efficient transportation services they deserve.”

“Our priority is safe and reliable trips to and from school,” said Trevis Sallis, executive director of student transportation at Omaha Public Schools. “We look forward to partnering with Zum for the students and families we serve.”

“For many of the districts that we serve, Zum has transformed chronic bus driver shortages into a surplus, which brings peace of mind to families and schools,” said Narayan. “Our drivers are at the heart of what we do, and, since day one, we have challenged the status quo, putting in place a culture and program that ensures we are the employer of choice.”

Zum is a “Great Places to Work” certified company and takes pride in becoming a “choice employer” in any city where it has partnerships. Zum encourages and welcomes all existing drivers as well as new candidates to attend.
