We are pleased to announce that FIT Academy will be providing bus transportation to students who reside throughout the District 196 boundaries. We also offer an independent bus route throughout Burnsville.
Students who live beyond the district’s boundaries will be allowed to catch their nearest bus on the edge of those boundaries. Under this plan, FIT students will catch a district bus to their nearest middle school and will then take a transfer bus routed directly to FIT Academy.
Use the resources below to see the district 196 transportation maps. Feel free to call Tamra Paschall at 952-847-3798 if you have any additional questions regarding transportation.
