FIT Academy provides bus transportation to district 196 resident students through district transportation. Under this plan, FIT students catch a district bus to their nearest middle school and are then transferred to a bus routed directly to FIT Academy. We also offer an independent bus route throughout Burnsville for Burnsville residents who do not reside in district 196. FIT Academy does not offer any transportation outside of district 196 and Burnsville.

Use the resources below to see the district 196 transportation maps. Feel free to call Nate Higgins at 952-847-3798 if you have any additional questions regarding transportation.
