Northstar Link Commuter Bus will offer the regular 887 schedule Tuesday, July 19. However, there will not be a special Twins bus because Northstar rail service will not be available.
Metro Transit officials announced Monday night that Northstar rail service will not resume for morning commuters on Tuesday, July 19, as announced earlier in the day. Instead, buses will replace trains. The change is the result of unforeseen delays in work by BNSF Railway to repair track damaged by a freight derailment over the weekend.
Replacement bus service will carry customers from four of five Northstar suburban stations to Target Field. Buses will leave Big Lake, Elk River, Anoka and Coon Rapids/Riverdale stations following regular Northstar scheduled times. As previously announced, Fridley Station remains closed for all morning and afternoon commuter trips Tuesday.
Customers may experience delayed arrivals at Target Field Station due to traffic conditions.
Depending on the pace of BNSF work, either trains or buses will carry customers home from downtown Tuesday afternoon.
Ongoing updates will be available at metrotransit.org or by calling 612-373-3333.
