Metro Green Line ready for June 14th opening

Posted: Updated:

The Metro Green Line opens in just one week and because we’ll all soon get to take advantage of the multimillion dollar investment, we’re taking you on a tour to show you why you just might have a new reason to leave your car behind.

“It’s a great way to get around,” said Rolland Green, rail operator and instructor. “I mean a $1.75 transfer and you can ride the train for 2 ½ hours so it’s a great way to get people around and I think they’re going to enjoy it.”

Green says by 2030 more than 40,000 people will board the new metro Green Line every single week and the 957 million dollar investment provides nearly 10 miles of rail track which will connect Union Depot in St. Paul to the new Target Field station in Minneapolis. The trip between the stations will take approximately 40 minutes and the line will connect to 18 stations total plus five shared with the Blue Line in Minneapolis.

All metro transit services will be free when the Green Line opens on June 14th and will also be free on June 15th. A grand opening celebration will take place at the Union Depot in St. Paul on June 14th.
