Welcome Aboard!

The METRO Blue Line offers fast, quiet light-rail service to 19 stations between downtown Minneapolis and Mall of America.

Dozens of bus routes are timed to connect with trains at Blue Line stations, making it easy to get to work, to shopping or wherever you need to be. The Blue Line shares five downtown Minneapolis stations with the new METRO Green Line, with service to the University of Minnesota and St. Paul.
