Metro Transit: The original rideshare

Transit is the answer if you need a ride that’s affordable, reliable, and convenient. We are, after all, the original rideshare service in the Twin Cities.

We’re here to take people where they need to go. Our trained, professional operators are ready to take you out and about, whether that’s to a Twins game, to visit a friend, to the airport, or to get to a medical appointment or shopping. Learn how to ride.

Metro Transit is the affordable choice 

During most of the day, light rail and most bus rides cost just $2, or even less for eligible customers. Our “surge” pricing – for express buses and during rush hours – is only $1.25 more. And that includes 2½ hours of unlimited rides. Learn how little it costs.

You can pay through our app (no tip required).

Haven’t tried Metro Transit lately? Use the Metro Transit app to plan your trip, get step-by-step instructions, find real-time updates on the next bus or train, even buy a transit ticket – all on your phone. 

You can also pay in dollar bills or coins, just remember there’s no change available.
Learn how to pay your fare.

Curious? Plan your next ride on Metro Transit.

Use our Trip Planner your starting location, destination, and when you’d like to travel. In seconds, you’ll have options including walking directions, how much it will cost, and how long it will take. Simple!

In fact, we have a number of online tools that make riding easy and convenient. Learn about customer tools.
