Today is the first day passengers will be served on the Metro Transit Green Line between downtown Saint Paul and downtown Minneapolis. From what I understand, the entire Metro Transit system will be fare-free all day Saturday and Sunday as part of the celebration. That means you have no excuse to not get on board and take a ride on the train and experience the many neighborhoods it passes through. My 4 year old daughter and I will be taking advantage and touring the line–please join us.
This is a short video from the U of M’s Center for Transportation Studies department about the transformation of Washington Avenue which runs through the heart of campus that was brought about by the Green Line’s development. I can’t seem to cut and paste to quote the video’s description so please click through to read that here.
Sadly, the rain got in the way of wandering around too much, but it had a great bowl of Pho in the Midway.
