After riding the METRO Blue Line one might ask, "Why did so many municipalities tear up their trolley systems after WWII?" Minneapolis METRO is a clean, fast, fun, easy, and inexpensive (non-rush hours) way to get about the city. Leave the car! Take the METRO!

Best way to get downtown for sure. Hung out at Mall of America and saw Twins were in town. Took train right to front door of stadium. No muss, no fuss, no wait.

Caught the Blue line metro from airport to downtown area, where hotel was located. Convenient, cheap fare, on time service every 10 minutes, clean. Great way to see a glimpse of the City.

The light rail is a reasonably quick and economical way to get around Minneapolis and Saint Paul. The trains are clean and arrive frequently during the day, every 10-15 minutes. The only drawback is there are only two lines, so you have to make sure...More

I am so sorry, I have not idea. I am from Texas and only took the Hiawatha line from Milkwaukee to Chicago and back. You might contact the train company.
