Before the event:

  • Park for free and hop on! Park in one of 2,800 free spaces at the 28th Avenue, Fort Snelling and Lake Street/Midtown stations and get an Event 6-Hour Pass for an easy roundtrip. New this year is connecting service at Mall of America to the METRO Red Line, with frequent bus rapid transit service along Cedar Avenue to Apple Valley.

  • Hop on downtown. Rides within downtown are just 50¢ each way. Buy a Downtown Zone roundtrip pass for $1 from any rail station ticket machine – no waiting in the ticket line after the event! Get details.

  • Note: After some large events, we may supplement light rail with big, comfortable buses that go directly to Fort Snelling and 28th Avenue Park & Ride lots. Show your Event 6-Hour Pass when you board. You'll find buses lined up near the Downtown East/Metrodome light-rail station after the event.
