GETTING AROUND THE TWIN CITIES
Let Metro Transit take you to the best that the Twin Cities has to offer. Our buses and
light rail trains make getting to great destinations easy and stress free!
If you’re traveling between downtown Minneapolis and Saint Paul, your best option
is to take the METRO Green Line, which connects the two cities and the University of
Minnesota via light rail.
In Minneapolis, the METRO Blue Line is the easy option from downtown to both airport
terminals and from there it’s just a short ride to Mall of America. Trains leave roughly
every 10 minutes during rush hours. For service to downtown Saint Paul from Terminal
1-Lindbergh, board a Route 54 bus.
Fares range from $1.75 to $3, depending on time of day and type of service. To
transfer to another bus or to one of the METRO lines, ask for a transfer, which is valid
for unlimited rides for 2. 5 hours.
You can ride within the Minneapolis or Saint Paul Downtown Zones for only 50 cents
at any time (transfers are not available within the zones). If you’re planning to ride a lot,
buy a Day Pass. For just $6, you’ll get unlimited rides on buses and the light rail anywhere
in Minneapolis or Saint Paul for 24 hours.
