Metro Transit partnership means free rides on gameday
There might be a battle on the field, but getting to the Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome for Minnesota United FC matches won’t be a struggle for soccer fans around the Twin Cities thanks to a partnership the club and Metro Transit announced Monday. Thanks to the partnership, Metro Transit will provide free bus and light rail rides to and from United FC games played in downtown Minneapolis.
Metro Transit will provide free rides two hours before and after kickoff on April 6, April 20, May 4, May 18 and June 8. To accommodate fans with tickets at will call or purchasing at the box office, a downloadable pass is required and can be accessed via MNUnitedFC.com. Fans showing only a game ticket will not be permitted to ride on Metro Transit buses and light rail free of charge. CLICK HERE OR THE IMAGE TO DOWNLOAD PASS
“Metro Transit will be an invaluable partner as we begin the next era of professional soccer in the Twin Cities,” said Djorn Buchholz, Minnesota United FC vice president of sporting operations. “We’re excited for the season opener this Saturday and appreciative of Metro Transit’s support to providing greater access to the Metrodome for soccer fans throughout the community.”
Numerous bus lines and the light rail run through downtown within short walking distance of the Metrodome. During Saturday’s home opener against the San Antonio Scorpions, a “bus bridge” will provide service between the Franklin Avenue and Target Field train stations due to maintenance on the rail lines.
