We are excited for your child to walk through our doors each day. Therefore, at MTCS, we are dedicated to provide reliable and safe transportation for our students.

Although we welcome all students to our academies, we only offer transportation for students that reside in some areas of Minneapolis and some neighboring suburbs depending on your academy choice.

Bus & Bus Stop Expectations

Students are expected to positively represent the Minnesota Transition Charter School and its programs at Minnehaha and Metro Transit bus stops and on their buses. According to MN Statute 121A.59, a “student’s eligibility to ride the school bus may be revoked for violation of school bus safety or conduct policies, or for violation of any other law governing student conduct on a school bus pursuant to a written school district discipline policy.”Some basic guidelines for waiting at the bus stop and riding the bus include:

  1. Follow the rules and safety guidelines
  2. Be on time for the bus
  3. Respect others and their property
  4. Use appropriate language

If you have urgent transportation concerns or questions for MTCS, please call the transportation coordinator at 612-328-7030 (6 am-6 pm).
