Hopkins Happy Hour and Bus Trip: Saturday, March 30th

Join your friends at streets.mn for a Hopkins happy hour + bus trip. In case you missed the Red Line ride, or the A Line ride, these are fun ways to learn about transit, hanging out with fellow transit nerds, and see new parts of the city that might be worth a gander.

Here we’re going to Hopkins to check out some of the transit potential in the West Metro’s finest suburb (at least according to Bill Lindeke). Come along and have some fun riding the 612!


The events committee has put together the following itinerary:


Saturday, March 30th:
1:00 PM – 1:15 PM: Meet at Uptown Transit Station
1:23 PM – 1:45(ish) PM: Ride bus 612 to downtown Hopkins, alight at Excelsior/5th.
1:45 PM – 2:15 PM: Walk to the site of the new light rail station near Excelsior/8th, invite discussion on the Green Line Extension, then walk to LTD Brewing
2:15 PM – 4:00 PM: Happy Hour at LTD Brewing
4:15 PM – 4:40 PM: Ride bus 612 back to Uptown Transit Station


It’ll be great! And maybe even spring-like. Post a comment if you have any questions, and please RSVP  here to let us know you’re coming.
