or the Transportation Hotline 952-988-3871.

Door-to-door service is a premium service where buses navigate as close to your doorstep as possible to pick up students. This service is available round trip or on a one way-basis. Students who use door-to-door service may be picked up or dropped off at other locations at no additional charge. Door-to-door service is not available to or from the Northrop campus.

Centralized service (best value) involves picking up Blake students at centralized locations. It is designed to be a less expensive, more efficient (shorter bus ride) alternative to door-step service. Students may ride round trip or only purchase one-way service. Parents are responsible for transporting students to and from the pickup point.

Combination service is a mix of door-to-door and centralized service.

Blake single ride service (purchased in advance) is available to all Blake students. Up to 50 single rides per student may be purchased at any time and can be used for pick up or drop off at any of Blake's existing centralized or residential bus stops.

PM activity shuttle service transports students among campuses free of charge. Please see the schedule below.

Northrop services are "only centralized stops" in the AM. 
PM Door to door and centralized service is available by riding from Northrop to Blake Campus via the afternoon shuttle and transferring to a route bus.
