The definition of mass transit in the Twin Cities is more than just city buses. The Hiawatha light rail line offers individuals quick and easy access to key destinations like the airport and the Mall of America. Additionally, the Northstar Commuter Rail provides convenience for those coming from the northwest corner of the suburbs (between Big Lake and downtown Minneapolis).

Make Your Voice Heard!

If you would like to offer comments or suggestions on light rail transit (LRT), PTS encourages you to contact and provide feedback directly to the Metropolitan Council.
