MetroTransit train and station Glen Stubbe

Thanks to two light rail lines, you can get from downtown Minneapolis to downtown St. Paul, the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport, the Mall of America and the U.S. Bank Stadium by train.

The Blue Line and the Green Line both run along the same tracks on 5th Street in Minneapolis, traveling between Target Field and the warehouse district in the northwest part of downtown Minneapolis down to the U.S. Bank Stadium to the southeast edge of downtown.

Look for the blue light on the side or front of the train to take the Blue Line if you want to continue south to the airport and the Mall of America. Look for the green light on the train to take the Green Line if you want to head east to the University of Minnesota campus, St. Paul’s Midway neighborhood, the State Capitol, downtown St. Paul and Lowertown St. Paul.

Trains come every 10 minutes throughout the day, every 10 to 15 minutes in the evenings and every 30 to 60 minutes overnight.

You can buy a ticket with cash or credit card on ticket machines at each platform. Basic adult fares are $2.50 during rush hours, and $2 at all other times. Special week-long passes and all-day passes are also available.

Regular light-rail service will not operate on Super Bowl Sunday. Only those holding a Super Bowl ticket along with a $30 Gameday Pass will be allowed to travel on light rail to get to the U.S. Bank Stadium by boarding at either Mall of America (Blue Line) or Stadium Village (Green Line) stations on Feb. 4, and special boarding requirements for time and stations will apply.

Replacement bus service will operate on game day instead of the Blue Line and between Stadium Village and Target Field on the Green Line. Train service on the rest of the Green Line through St. Paul will run as normal.
