New Student ID’s / Z Pass

Students will be issued a new smart Student ID.  The ID will have the student ID number as a bar code, an RFID chip and a QR code.  This ID will function as the bus pass, enable touchless payments in the cafeteria and more.  For transportation, the student ID must be scanned upon entering and exiting the bus.  The RFID chip interfaces with the new system called

Z Pass.   Z Pass ridership capability enables the district to know who is on the bus and where and when they entered or exited. The information is transmitted to a secure database.  The transportation department will use this information to locate a rider, and improve routes and utilization.  This will increase safety and efficiency for the district.  The Student ID will come hole punched for attaching  to backpacks, lanyards etc.  Students must have their ID at all times for riding the bus.  There will be a replacement fee charged for lost or damaged cards.

 

The district provides transportation to students in grades Kindergarten (K) through grade six (6).  Students in grades seven (7) through twelve (12) must purchase a bus pass to be eligible for transportation. Every effort will be made to provide safe, comfortable and pleasant transportation service while maintaining an appropriate level of efficiency. 

Effective transportation service requires cooperation among bus drivers & staff, school administrators, students and parents/guardians.  Transportation rules and procedures are provided so you can be familiar with our expectations and the transportation procedures.  The bus is an extension of the classroom and the bus driver is an extension of the teacher, thus all district policies are also observed on district transportation.

The Transportation Office is located in the HPS Central Administration building at 
89 Hayden Rowe Street, Hopkinton, MA.

The new Student ID must be scanned upon entering and exiting the bus.  All students should be at their designated bus stop 5-10 minutes before their scheduled pick-up time.  It is the parent responsibility to get students to and from the bus stop.  Bus routes will be published the last week of August.  Please see below for additional information based on your student grade level.
