Take the Wild Ride to playoff games

Attention, Minnesota Wild fans! You can take the Wild Ride for a fast and easy way to get to and from all Stanley Cup playoff games at the Xcel Energy Center.

Thanks to the Wild Ride, you can get a free ride on Metro Transit buses and METRO lines with a downloadable pass, which is available here

To get your free ride, simply print your pass and show it to the bus driver or Transit Police officer. Free rides are valid two hours before the game begins until two hours after the final horn sounds. Remember to keep your pass for your free ride home.

This offer is not available on Northstar.

Getting there

Take a bus from your neighborhood or ride the new METRO Green Line to Central Station in downtown St. Paul (skyway access is available in the tower at the station; see a skyway map here). It’s a short walk to the X from the station.

For help planning your trip, call a transit expert at 612-373-3333 or use the interactive Trip Planner.
