Northstar Service Starts Monday!

13 November 2009

I’ve been watching the Northstar trains run behind our offices for the past month or so, so I’m really excited that service will begin for this new commuter line on Monday!  The new light rail line will run from downtown Minneapolis through Big Lake, Elk River, Anoka, Coon Rapids and Fridley.

There are ticket machines at each station, and your fare will depend on how far you are traveling.  For example, a trip from Elk River to downtown Minneapolis will run $5.50 on weekdays and $4.00 on weekends – way, WAY cheeper than finding parking in the same area.

Tickets for Northstar also allow riders to transfer free of charge to the Hiawatha light rail line and any Metro Transit buses.

For more information and to plan your first Northstar line, visit the Northstar Commuter Rail website!
