Northstar Commuter Rail — the state’s first commuter rail line — provides commuter rail service from downtown Minneapolis to Big Lake, with connecting coach bus service between Big Lake and St. Cloud. This new transit option is a great asset to the Northstar Corridor and beyond.
With your support, we will work to extend train service to St. Cloud.

extending the rail service to St. Cloud when the timing is
right. Join us in a discussion about the opportunities--and
the challenges--for expanding transportation options.
