MINNEAPOLIS - More than 30 school districts throughout Minnesota head back to school, Monday, Aug. 27.
One of those districts is Minneapolis Public Schools, and for students at six of their high schools getting to school is going to be a different experience than ever before.
Minneapolis Public Schools and Metro Transit, are expanded the Go-To Student Pass ridership program, which replaces yellow buses with public transit routes.
Approximately 2,500 students are eligible for the program, from Edison, Henry, North, Roosevelt, Washburn and Wellstone High Schools.
Dr. Bernadeia Johnson, MPS Superintendent, spoke on KARE 11 Sunrise about the program and how it aims and helping students attend more after school activities.
