Service on Gameday, Feb. 4

Due to security around the stadium on game day and the proximity of the stadium to the light-rail line, regular light-rail service WILL NOT operate on gameday; only those holding an official Super Bowl LII ticket, along with a Gameday Fan Express Pass will go through security checkpoints and board light rail at either Mall of America (Blue Line) or Stadium Village (Green Line) stations on February 4, 2018. Green Line service will operate normally between Stadium Village and Union Depot stations on gameday; Blue Line trains will operate only between Target Field and Government Plaza stations in downtown Minneapolis. For non-game-ticket holders, free buses will replace light-rail trains on the entirety of the Blue Line throughout the day on February 4, 2018. Free replacement buses will operate between Target Field Station and Stadium Village Station on the Green Line. Buses run on similar schedules to trains but can take longer; please plan accordingly.

Northstar will operate extra trips on gameday. See the full Northstar schedule for gameday here.
