The blue line runs between Mall of America and downtown for $2 each way, much cheaper than parking. Watch out for the vagrants and drunks who never seem to get off the train.

Or if you live downtown, it's a great way to get to the airport or the Mall of America. I think if I was a traveler from out-of-state staying downtown Minneapolis, I would just get on the train and go downtown for $2. No worries.

Easy to use. Just buy a single ride ticket good for 2 hours. It's $2 if I remember correctly. Just buy it from the automated booth. Great way to reach Mall of America. No hassles. You'll also meet a lot of Viking's fans.

We found the metro to be a fast, clean, easy and inexpensive way to get around. Between the bus transfers and the blue and green lines, we never needed a rental car to get around the city.

Yes, you can take the Blue Line from MOA to US Bank Stadium, then transfer to the Green Line to go to downtown St. Paul. This will take a long time though, so might be worth just taking a cab.
