Student Pass

Student Pass is 50% off September – December

Times are tough. Metro Transit is making them easier by providing a 50% discount on all Student Passes until the end of the year. For details, contact your school administration.

Does your high school offer the Student Pass?

Go-to Student Pass

When your school signs up for Student Pass, you're eligible for unlimited access to all regional buses and trains. (For select Northstar fares above $3.25, add stored value to your Student Pass to cover the additional fare.)

Your student ID is required along with the pass; the card is valid only when used by the named cardholder. All students agree to the Metro Transit Code of Conduct. Failure to adhere to the policies of your school or Metro Transit may result in pass deactivation.
