Price Cut on Northstar Rail Line to Encourage Ridership
MINNEAPOLIS, MN–It’s going to be cheaper for you to ride the Northstar Rail Line during the week.
Metro Transit is hoping discounting fares will get more people to ride.
Most fares will drop one dollar, the fare from downtown Minneapolis to Big Lake that costs seven dollars now, will cost six dollars beginning Wednesday.
Since last year ridership is down four percent. The cheaper fares will last until April of next year.
