Connecting downtown Minneapolis and downtown Saint Paul

The METRO Green Line links five major centers of activity in the Twin Cities region:

  • Downtown Minneapolis
  • University of Minnesota
  • Midway area of Saint Paul
  • State Capitol complex
  • Downtown Saint Paul

The line was built on 11 miles of exclusive right of way between downtown Saint Paul and downtown Minneapolis, with much of the route along University Avenue.

The METRO Green Line's eastern terminus is at Union Depot Station in downtown St. Paul. It connects with the METRO Blue Line (Hiawatha LRT) at the Downtown East Station in Minneapolis and terminates at Target Field Station, which also serves the Northstar commuter rail line.

Passengers access the Green Line via 18 new stations, plus five stations shared with the METRO Blue Line in downtown Minneapolis.
