About Us

People on train platform.

In May 1997, 30 counties, cities, townships and regional rail authorities created the joint powers board known as the Northstar Corridor Development Authority (NCDA) to address the increased need for additional transportation solutions between St. Cloud and Minneapolis. Over the next decade, the NCDA overcame many hurdles to make the Northstar Commuter Rail Project a reality. When Northstar service begins in late 2009, it will add much needed capacity to this region and create an easy and affordable way for people to travel.
