Two-car train test now in effect

METRO Blue and Green trains are testing the use of two-car trains. Please move to the departing end of the platform to ensure timely entrance to train cars. This test program will end Saturday, Aug. 20.

The two-car test program is part of the Safety & Security Action Plan and will:

  • Increase the likelihood that customers will observe a police officer or Community Service Officer, a top priority for customers.
  • Reduce wear and tear on light rail vehicles and relieve some pressure on light rail vehicle maintenance and allow for proper cleaning while departments are understaffed.

Adjustments may be made during the test program based on customer and staff feedback. After the test concludes, feedback and other evaluation measures will be considered to determine next steps.

To provide feedback, email us at or call 612-373-3333.

NOTE: Special considerations may be made on special event dates when ridership increases are anticipated.

During this testing period, buses will be replacing METRO Blue Line trains between Mall of America and Airport – Terminal 2 stations.
