St. Paul Public Schools Go-To Student Pass

Minneapolis Public Schools Student Pass

The Go-To Student Pass program is a transit pass available to St. Paul Public Schools high school students. The pass allows for unlimited rides on city buses and light rail between 5 a.m. and 10 p.m. seven days a week. Schools whose students already have Go-To Students Passes are:

  • Creative Arts Secondary

  • Gordon Parks

  • Johnson Senior High

For students at these schools, cards will be available within the first few weeks of school. Until then, students can download or print a pass here to show the bus driver or Transit Police. 

  • Central High School

  • Como Park Senior High

  • Harding Senior High

  • Washington Technology Magnet School (9-12 grade students only)

Students must agree to follow the Go-To Student Pass Code of Conduct.

Getting ready for your ride

To find your closest transit stops and schedules, use the Trip Planner at metrotransit.org or on the Metro Transit app and enter your home address and name of your school. Search the schedule for a weekday arrival time at least 15-30 minutes before the start of the school day. School staff will help students get to and from bus stops the first few weeks of school, distribute cards, and help with lost or stolen cards.

Use the NexTrip feature at metrotransit.org or on the Metro Transit app to get real-time updates on the location of your bus or train. Sign up for Rider Alerts to receive a text message when your route is running off schedule.

For help by phone, call 612-373-3333. Our trip planning experts are standing by from 6:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. on weekdays and 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Saturdays. Interpretation services for dozens of languages are available over the phone by request.


How to ride

Arrive at your stop five minutes before the bus or train is scheduled to arrive. Tap your card on the Go-To Card reader on the bus or on the METRO BRT/light rail platform every time you ride – including each time you transfer. For more information, visit metrotransit.org/how-to-ride.
