Metro Transit is offering a special State Fair deal to Northstar Commuter Rail customers on Aug. 24-25 and Aug. 31 to Sept. 1.
Buy a Northstar Family Pass for one of these days and your State Fair Express ride is included. A Family Pass is valid for round-trip rides for two adults and three kids ages 6-17 (five and under ride free). Pass prices range from $11 to $20 depending on the station (Elk River is $16).
Take Northstar from any station along the line and hop on a State Fair Express bus at Fridley Station. Buses leave there approximately every half hour.
The State Fair Family Pass promotion includes Northstar Link service from St. Cloud and Becker. Show your Northstar Family Pass on weekends during the State Fair to ride Northstar Link buses for free.
