Bus service to and from Tehiyah is available to families living in Berkeley, Oakland, Piedmont and points south. This year, we are partnering with ZUM, a rideshare company specializing in transporting children. Zum works with several other area schools and their drivers are subject to the same background checks as our teachers. They will use vans, a small school bus or cars and their drivers have teaching or childcare experience.
Just as with the school bus, there will be specific pick up and drop off locations, two of which will be located in Berkeley, and two in Oakland. Unlike a traditional school bus, you will be able to track progress and receive notifications regarding the location of your child. You will also be able to arrange private rides (at your own cost) beyond regular stops.
Zum will provide booster seats for every child who needs one, but unfortunately cannot accommodate children who require a car seat. The minimum weight for a booster seat is 40 pounds.
For Zum service, you need to sign up with Zum through their website. Use the link below to see scheduled stops and times, as well as other pertinent information. Once you sign up, Zum will contact you directly to verify your child's weekly schedule and answer any questions you may have about the service.
If you have any questions or feedback, please contact Jonothon Rich at firstname.lastname@example.org or 510.812.5981.
