Catch the Van-GO! Outside Buntrock Commons.

The driver will take St. Olaf students to: community service sites, off-campus student-work assignments, student teaching, classes at Carleton, and medical/dental/therapy appointments in town.


7am -6pm

Make online reservations before 9pm, a minimum of a DAY PRIOR to when you need a ride. Van-GO! needs to have all rides requested in a day in advance in order to make schedules for the next day.

Students will receive an email confirmation for each email requested trip received prior to 9pm of the night before.

We emphasize that regular recurring riders set their rides up via online/email as soon as possible for the recurring schedule. The objective is to minimize driver distraction(less call and texts) while driving with student prior planning, to the degree possible.

All last minute urgent needs (medical etc.) are understandable and will be treated with due respect.

Make an online reservation (a minimum of a day in advance before 9PM): or by email at

Call: 507-291-6168 for emergency situations only

Students must use email address for an online appointment.

Check with the driver and show an Ole Card when the vehicle is present. Track the location of the vehicle via their webpage. Visible GPS tracking during scheduled hours.

Make arrangements for a pick-up with the driver before you exit the vehicle.

The driver will NOT take riders to dine or shop.  Take The LOCAL EXPRESS for that.

Complimentary Northfield Transit tokens are available for students use during daytime business hours, at the Buntrock Information Desk.
