Live Blog: Green Line trains get rolling, linking Minneapolis, St. Paul

Light-rail cars started rolling Saturday, June 14. The $1 billion, 11-mile line, formerly known as the Central Corridor, connects downtown St. Paul to downtown Minneapolis.

  • Grand opening: All Metro Transit rides — bus, light-rail and commuter rail — will be free Saturday and Sunday.

    Fares: Green Line fares match those used on the Blue Line and local bus routes — $2.25 during weekday rush hours and $1.75 during off-peak hours. 

    How to pay: Cash, passes or Metro Transit’s Go-To cards.

    Tickets: They’re good for 2 ½ hours and can be used for return trips or transfers to other Metro Transit bus or rail service for no additional charge.

    Hours: Trains will run every 10 minutes throughout the day, every 10 to 20 minutes in the evening and in the morning before rush hour, and once an hour from 1 to 4 a.m.
