History of Northstar
Northstar Commuter Rail at a Glance
When Northstar Commuter Rail service begins in late 2009, Northstar trains will operate from Big Lake to downtown Minneapolis, with the potential for extending the line north to St. Cloud at a future date. The Northstar Line will be operated by Metro Transit and will provide an important link to a broader transit network in the metro area and central Minnesota.
Here is a simple overview of some key facts and figures about the initial phase of Northstar.
Building Northstar Together
The $320 million cost of building the state’s first commuter rail line is being shared by the state and federal governments, the regional rail authorities for Anoka, Hennepin and Sherburne counties, the Metropolitan Council and the Minnesota Twins.
The Trip — By the Numbers
Passenger cars will have comfortable seating, on-board restrooms, tables with electrical outlets, bicycle and luggage storage and will be fully ADA compliant.
