Green Light for Green Line

Metro Transit’s new light rail Green Line recently opened with celebrations and ceremonies at stations along the 11-mile route, which connects Target Field on the western edge of downtown Minneapolis to Union Depot on the eastern edge of downtown St. Paul. Boardings exceeded 107,000 during the weekend festivities despite heavy rain and high winds, which cut short some station celebrations. “The wet weather certainly didn’t dampen the mood during the Green Line’s opening weekend,” said Metro Transit General Manager Brian Lamb. “Metro Transit staff and our partners are very proud to have welcomed tens of thousands of familiar and new faces safely aboard our buses and trains.”
