GOAL Line Detroit: Buses and After-School Programs for Students
The GOAL Line, which stands for Get On And Learn, launched in fall 2018 to connect Northwest Detroit students to key resources.
The GOAL Line is a free bus loop that takes Detroit public school students to and from 10 schools in the city’s Northwest area – both in the morning and afternoon – and takes youth to after-school programs at the Northwest Activities Center.
All students who attend one of the 10 GOAL Line schools along the bus route are eligible for free transportation and after-school activities. The GOAL Line stops at 10 schools in the morning and in the afternoon. To catch a ride to any of the 10 schools, families need only transport their student to the GOAL Line school closest to their home.
In addition, any student enrolled at a GOAL Line school can access free after-school programming. Transportation to and from the Northwest Activities Center will be provided in the afternoon.
Students are not required to use the GOAL Line, and can continue to use existing yellow school bus services if they prefer. For details on these schools, see the Red/Rojo directory section. Participating schools include:
- Bagley Elementary School of Journalism and Technology
- Coleman A. Young Elementary
- Cornerstone Lincoln-King Academy
- Detroit Achievement Academy
- Foreign Language Immersion & Cultural Studies (FLICS)
- John R. King Academic & Performing Arts Academy
