Buses will Replace Downtown Trains June 22-July 3

Due to scheduled system improvements and maintenance, buses will replace trains for 11 days beginning Thursday, June 22 during a partial shutdown on the METRO Blue & Green Line. Customers can board replacement buses near the affected stations. Buses run on similar schedules as trains but can take more time. Customers are urged to plan accordingly. Consider walking or biking from U.S. Bank Stadium Station to your downtown destinations.

From 6:45 p.m. Thursday, June 22 until 5 a.m. Monday, July 3, buses will replace Blue and Green Line trains for these stations:

- U.S. Bank Stadium (northbound/westbound only)
- Government Plaza
- Nicollet Mall
- Warehouse-Hennepin Avenue
- Target Field

See all your options for getting where you need to be during the 11 day shutdown.

*A brief extension of the closure will take place the first evening Thursday, June 22 at 11 p.m. At that point Blue Line trains will not operate between Franklin Avenue and Target Field stations and Green Line trains will not operate between West Bank and Target Field stations. Replacement bus service will be in effect.
Trains will resume to U.S. Bank Stadium station at 3:30 a.m. on Friday, June 23 and for the duration of the 11 day improvement closure.
