Transportation

We are committed to providing safe and efficient transportation for our students.

Transportation Eligibility and Planning

All students who attend their school of zone, and who live more than 1.25 miles from school (1.5 miles for high schools), are eligible for school bus transportation.  Exceptions are made for certain areas where unsafe walking conditions exist. 

We use Tyler’s Versatrans Routing & Planning, a state-of-the-art computer mapping and routing program, to create the most efficient bus routes possible.  As a result, we are generally unable to provide door-to-door bus service.

MNPS provides transportation only to students who attend their zoned school, but there are some exceptions and options.

Public bus transportation through WeGo Public Transit is provided at no cost to all Metro Schools high school students through the . The free service also is available to middle school students attending an MNPS optional school, with the exception of charter middle schools. Contact your MNPS middle school office for parental permission forms and eligibility information. 

Some charter schools provide their own transportation. Contact individual schools to determine transportation availability.
