ST. CLOUD — Let Northstar Link and Northstar Commuter Rail take you out to the ball game.

Every Twins home game this season will have bus and rail service. Baseball fans will be able to take the Northstar Link bus from St. Cloud or Becker to Big Lake to connect with the Northstar train, which takes them directly to Target Field in Minneapolis. At the scheduled departure time, or 30 minutes after the last out for specially scheduled trains, fans will be able to board the train to Big Lake and easily transfer to the Northstar Link bus to finish the trip back to Becker or St. Cloud.

Separate tickets are needed to ride the Link and the train. Link rides cost $1.75 or less each way. Train fares vary by station. Before games, round-trip train tickets and Northstar Roundtrip Family Passes can be purchased online at www.metrotransit.org/Northstar. Just print your ticket and keep it with you.

“Taking the Link and train are part of the fun of going to a baseball game,” said Stearns County Commissioner Leigh Lenzmeier, chair of the Northstar Corridor Development Authority. “Online train tickets make it even easier to enjoy the stress-free ride.”

The Minnesota Twins Northstar Link service is called route 887T. The 887T schedule is available on Link buses and Northstar trains, online at www.CatchTheLink.com, or by calling 877.LINK.010.  For information on train schedules and fare options, go to www.metrotransit.org/twins.
