Metro Express - General Schedule

Daily route service from Northfield to Minneapolis / St. Paul.



The Metro Express will be operating a limited schedule with several stops being omitted or altered beginning January 15, 2018 – February 6, 2018. THE METRO EXPRESS WILL NOT OPERATE AFTER 7:00PM ON FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 2, 2018 – SUNDAY FEBRUARY 4, 2018.

Listed below are the dates and stops that will be altered:

  • January 15 – February 7, 2018:  No Downtown Minneapolis Stop (8th Street is closed)
  • January 31- February 2, 2018:  No MSP Int’l Airport Drop Off/Pick Up.  The Metro Express will be using the Bloomington Central Light Rail Station as an alternative to the Airport.  Passengers can take the light rail from this station to either Terminal 1 or Terminal 2.  We have discounted the Metro Express ticket price to account for the light rail fee into the airport.

Metro Express is our daily route service running all the way from Northfield, MN to the great Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul. Along the way you can visit the Mall of America, the beautiful campus of the University of Minnesota, get right into downtown Minneapolis, drop-off at MSP Int’l Airport and much more!
