    “MavCard:  Your Ticket to Ride” - Bus Service -

    If you produce your MavCard there is no charge for riding any bus on any bus route within Mankato and North Mankato. You can thank the Student Senate and the Minnesota State Student Association for creating this opportunity. It was the MSSA that championed adoption of the mandatory Green Transportation Fee (now 85 cents per credit hour). In 2012-13 the fee brought in $232,333 which helped finance an expanded bus program ($353,221) and improve ridership from 198,616 rides per academic year to a new level of 349,507 rides.
