Metro Transit just announced an exciting offer for students at eligible high schools (Great River is one!). For just $29, your students can get a special SummerStudent Pass that gives them unlimited rides on buses and light rail all summer long! It’s perfect for summer jobs, recreational activities and all the other fun that summer brings.
The Summer Student Pass is valid from June 1st through September 3rd, from 5 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily. Students can use it on any bus or train in the metro area with a fare up to $3.25 (for fares high than that amount, like some Northstar commuter rail trips, students will need to add value to their passes.)
How to get a pass:
You can go to metrotransit.org/summer-student-pass to get more details about the pass and order one online with a credit card or purchase a pass with cash or a credit card at either of our two Metro Transit Service Centers. We do not sell these passes at the school!
If your student is in grades 8-12 this year, they have been entered into the system. You will just need your student's school Student Number in order to purchase the discounted ticket. Check your email for a communication with your student’s number.
