“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 $1.00 per credit hour). In 2011-12 ridership was 198,616 when $45 semester bus passes were being sold compared to a level of 402,397 rides in 2015-16 with the mandatory Green Transportation Fee and no semester bus pass.
