ZPass Ridership Program




    Sign-up for Z-Pass Notifications

  • Springfield Public Schools is happy to offer an additional program to put parents' minds at ease when their student rides the bus to and from school. ZPass Plus is a program that tracks and notifies parents when a student gets on and off the school bus enhancing student safety. 

    Registered bus riders will receive a student badge that can easily be attached to their backpack and will be scanned as they enter and exit the bus each trip. The scanner will allow parents and the transportation department accurate information about when a student enters the bus and where they exit the bus on their assigned route. 

    Participation in this program is required and all registered bus riders will automatically be enrolled in the program, however, parents and guardians who wish to opt their student out of the program can print and return the below form to their student's school or the transportation office.
