Go To Card Information


If you have a current photo on file with Minneapolis Public Schools and are eligible for a Go-To Card you will be able to pick them up on the following dates and times in the West Gym.

PLEASE BE AWARE: We ask for your patience as many students will not have a pre-printed bus card. Due to COVID and the lack of school pictures, we may not be able to give you a physical card on pick up day. If your card is not ready, we do have a process in place when you come to easily order a card if you are eligible. Cards not ready at pick up will be ready during the first two weeks of school.

*Students (who are not eligible for a Go-To Card) who wish to purchase a GO-TO card may bring CASH (no checks will be accepted) during the times slots listed below or during lunch the first two weeks of school.

Make sure to read through all the details below regarding GO-TO Cards and Student IDs.

If you do not have a picture on file please complete the Request IDs & GO TO Cards Form below asap. You will be able to pick your GO TO Cards during lunch the first few weeks of school if your application has been submitted.

GO-TO CARDS allow students freedom of the bus or train ridership, 5 a.m. to 10 p.m.
