The Light rail between Minneapolis and Saint Paul will link Twin Cities residents to neighborhoods and the two downtowns will start Saturday, June 14 with free rides and day-long community celebrations.
The 11-mile corridor between the two downtowns links Union Depot in St. Paul’s Lowertown to the State Capitol complex, Midway, University of Minnesota and Target Field. As the region’s second light rail line, the METRO Green Line will connect to the Blue Line (Hiawatha) at Downtown East Station.
