Summer info and end-of-school-year FAQ

Summer info and end-of-school-year FAQ

Hello Central community.

Here are a couple of items that might make your summer better

Free Y membership for teens. If you’re starting grade 9-12 in the fall, you can take advantage of free membership at Twin Cities YMCAs this summer with the Get Summer program.

Summer student Metro transit pass - Central students can get a summer's worth of rides on buses and light rail for just $30 with the Summer Student Pass!

From June 1 through Sept. 4, students can get unlimited rides on buses and trains up to a $3.25 fare (for fares higher than that amount, like some Northstar trips, just add stored value to your pass). Don't wait – Summer Student Passes go on sale May 13!
