When the Minnesota Twins begin play at Target Field in April, Metro Transit will be there, ready to transport fans to the new outdoor park.
Some games will be served by regularly scheduled service; Metro Transit will add supplemental service for others. See a list of games with Northstar service at metrotransit.org/twins.
In addition to special service, Metro Transit offers a discounted price for families heading to a Twins game on Northstar. The Northstar Roundtrip Family Pass is valid for rides for two adults and up to three children between the ages of 6 and 12. Kids five and under ride free. It is available after 9 a.m. any day of the week from ticket machines at Northstar’s five suburban stations and is valid through midnight on the day of issue.
Northstar Roundtrip Family Pass prices vary by station. Those boarding at Big Lake can purchase a family pass for $17; the price is $13 at Elk River Station, $10 at both Anoka and Coon Rapids stations and $8 from Fridley Station. Purchases can be made with cash or credit cards.
In addition to Northstar service, Metro Transit has several options for easy, economical travel to Twins games, with several bus routes stopping at or very near the ballpark and Hiawatha light-rail service that stops just steps from the field. In addition, Metro Transit will add a special “Twins Express” route to every home game from the I-394 & County Road 73 Park & Ride lot.
