Multi-ride passes for Super Bowl

Ultimate Fan Pass

$40

Grab this pass for unlimited rides Jan. 26 – Feb. 5. That’s less than $4 per day! It’s valid on all buses and trains (including Northstar), except for light-rail service from Mall of America or Stadium Village on gameday.

The Ultimate Fan Pass is available only through the Metro Transit app.

Group travel: unless your group will travel together at all times, each person should buy their own pass on their own device. Passes cannot be transferred and must be used on the device of the person who originally purchased the pass.

All-Day Pass

$1-$5, varies by time of day

Not riding every day? For one low price, get an All-Day Pass for unlimited rides on buses and trains from time of purchase through 2 a.m. the next day.

Buy an All-Day Pass from the app or at rail station ticket machines.

Not valid on Northstar.

Gameday Fan Express Pass

$30

If you have a Super Bowl ticket, buy a special $30 Gameday Fan Express Pass. 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 a Super Bowl 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 Feb. 4.

Free replacement bus service will operate on gameday instead of the Blue Line and between Stadium Village and Target Field on the Green Line.

NOTE: Gameday Fan Express Passes are NOT transferable and must be used by the person who originally purchased the ticket(s).

Unless your group will travel to U.S. Bank Stadium together at the same time, each person should buy their own pass on their own device.

The Gameday Fan Express Pass, while active, is valid for all transit service.
