Metro Transit summer bus pass

I don’t know about you, but I don’t really want to spend my entire summer at my house. There is an easy solution to that though. Metro Transit is offering summer bus passes to high school students for $29.

June 1st through September 3rd, students will be able to ride on buses and trains under a $3.25 fare with this pass unlimitedly. One of the services this pass will not pay for are the Northstar trips, so please, do not try to use these passes for it. The passes can only be used between 5am and 10pm. Students that get the passes must agree to Metro Transit’s code of conduct. Each student can only get one pass.

Highland is one of the high schools participating, and seniors can also get this pass.

Connected to this program, Metro Transit is partnering with Second Harvest Heartland. They are offering nutritious, free meals to kids and teens over the summer at specific sites, which you can use the pass to get to. If you want to learn more about them, visit: https://www.2harvest.org/who–how-we-help/services-and-programs/programs/sfsp/participant-page.html?utm_source=metrotransit#.XPe3TslOk0M.

If you wish to buy the pass using cash, you can buy it at Metro Transit Service Center.

If you plan on using the bus this summer, I would suggest getting this pass to save money.

If you are wondering what other schools are participating, or where to buy the pass, go to: https://www.metrotransit.org/summer-student-pass.

Metro Transit suggests that you register your pass when you have received it. That allows them to replace your pass easily if it has been lost or stolen for a $5 processing fee.

Sales this year began on May 15th, so if you enjoyed the pass this year, be on a lookout around then next year for it.
