Frequently asked questions

Why do I need Zeelo to manage our transportation?
Zeelo believes that your organization should expect more from their school transportation than just “getting by”. By using data to make smarter transportation decisions, we aim to get more cars off the road, reduce congestion and pollution at the school gates and maximize your catchment area, whilst removing the headache of managing your own transportation.

We also know that parents expectations towards school transportation have changed, and they now expect to manage their children's school bus with user friendly technology.
Isn’t this just going to cost me more money when budgets are already being squeezed?
Actually, we have demonstrated with our clients how they can actually save money with Zeelo! By optimizing routes and providing more flexible ticket options we reduce the numbers of empty seats. By working with a variety of operators we can source the most appropriate sized vehicle for the job. Our fully managed service also removes a huge administrative burden, freeing up your team to do what they do best.
How does Zeelo create routes and timetables?
Zeelo uses its proprietary routing technology and your information to create optimized routes and schedules. When working with your team we will collect anonymized address data which will be analyzed by our routing algorithm, generating routes customized to achieve your organization's goals. We will also take into account the knowledge from your team, parents and from operators to ensure maximum rider uptake on your routes. Before the service is launched, these routes will be checked and risk-assessed to be suitable for your students.
Where do you currently operate?
Zeelo currently operates nationwide in the United States, but also operates globally in the United Kingdom and South Africa.
How long do I have to commit for?
The length of a program is determined by your organization's needs. Length varies, but programs are typically 3-5 years, providing stability and consistency of service. However, we will look at specific shorter-term requirements where needed. Speak with our transportation experts to determine the best option for your program.
What vehicle sizes are available for my organization?
Zeelo has a nationwide operator network that allows us to access vehicles from 16 seater mini-buses through to traditional yellow school bus. Vehicle size will be determined based on your organization's needs and providing the best value for money. Our flexible contracts with operators enable us to be proactive in making changes to services and vehicles as required.
How do you determine pricing?
After your introduction to Zeelo and a free non-obligation consultation, we'll provide you with a bespoke pricing proposal. Zeelo considers your organization's specific needs when determining pricing. This includes routes, vehicle size, schedules, ticketing, customer support and more. There are no extra fees for additional support or training or the number of revisions to route planning. We work very closely with our clients to ensure their budget requirements remain a key focus and they get the most value for their money.
