Minneapolis agency to review proposed Northstar Corridor fares

Next month, the Twin Cities' Metropolitan Council will hold several public hearings to review proposed fares for the Northstar Corridor.

Scheduled to open in late 2009, the 40-mile commuter-rail line will run from Big Lake to downtown Minneapolis. The council's Transportation Committee recently approved fares that would be priced according to a tier system based on the trip distance from downtown Minneapolis.

Proposed fares include: $7.50 from Big Lake, $5.50 from Elk River, $4 from Anoka, $4 from Coon Rapids and $3.25 from Fridley. The fare for passengers traveling between stations, but not going downtown, would be $3.25.
