Cardinal Go!

We are thrilled to provide an update on our ongoing collaboration, Cardinal GO, with Laketran. As we enter the third year of this initiative, it is evident that it continues to bring significant benefits to both our Mentor High School students and the local community.

Partnership Overview:

  • Cardinal GO is a partnership between Mentor High School and Laketran.

  • It allows Mentor High School students in grades 9-12, with parent/guardian permission, to ride Laketran's Local Route 1-9 free of charge for various travel needs.

  • The aim is to increase access to real-world learning opportunities and community resources in northeast Ohio.

How to Participate:

  1. Parents/Guardians should provide permission via the Annual Update in the parent portal by accessing the Cardinal Go Permission form.

  2. Students must download the EZfare app.

Getting the Cardinal GO Bus Pass:

  • Download the EZfare app from the App Store or Google Play.

  • Create an account using your Mentor High School email.

  • Email Jordan Gardner at  [email protected] to inform Laketran that you've created your EZfare account.

  • Laketran will then add a 30-day unlimited ride bus pass to your EZfare account, with a new ticket added automatically each month.

Why Ride Laketran:

  • Laketran Routes 1-9 provide access to destinations like Great Lakes Mall, Atlas Cinema, Lakeland Community College, and more, all for free.

  • Even if students don't plan to ride the bus immediately, it's recommended to download the app and create an account to have a pass available for last-minute transportation needs.

Contact Information:

  • For questions or assistance with bus schedules, contact Jordan Gardner at  [email protected] or 440-350-1008.
