Riding public transit is a convenient and inexpensive way to get around. Fares range from $2 to $3.25, depending on time of day. You can pay bus fares in exact change in coins and bills, with a Go-To Card or with the Metro Transit app.
Metro Transit offers fast, frequent service to both downtowns, Mall of America and hundreds of other popular attractions. For an extremely efficient way to travel, get around town on the METRO Blue and Green light rail lines and the A and C bus rapid transit lines. The METRO Blue Line connects downtown Minneapolis with the airport and Mall of America, and the METRO Green Line connects downtown Minneapolis, the University of Minnesota and downtown St. Paul.
These are special zones in downtown Minneapolis and downtown St. Paul. If your trip stays within these zones you pay just 50¢. It's great for riding just a few stops on buses and on METRO Blue and Green lines. Pay on board buses or buy a Downtown Zone ticket at METRO station ticket machines.
