What is the bus card pilot program?

HCPSS is conducting a pilot program for a student bus identification card. The pilot program is being conducted through the end of the 2023-2024 school year at several HCPSS schools that are serviced by Zum Services, Inc., which has the required hardware and software readily available.

Identified bus-rider students will be provided with an RFID (radio-frequency identification) Card, on which a student’s assigned bus is stored on a contactless chip in the card that will be scanned when a student gets on and off their bus.
