I am going to make up two sentences below.

(1) I will take the number five bus for six stops.

(2) I will take the number five bus to go six stops.

What is the difference between "for" and "to go" in this sentence. My friends and I cannot tell whether or not they have different meanings. Please help us.

Thank you very much.

I never ride the bus, but I'm sure there is no difference in meaning between the two sentences.

I agree with NKM. Both forms are common and have the same meaning.

There’s no different between the two in this context.
