Community members can get free rides on the Northstar commuter rail line if they donate to Toys for Tots.

Metro Transit and BNSF Railway are teaming up to offer the promotional deal Wednesday.

Riders can show Northstar drivers their donations of new, unwrapped toys and will get a pair of tickets to use at a later date.

Representatives will be at Target Field Station on Wednesday to accept the toys, which are given to kids whose families can’t buy presents this holiday season. Riders who aren’t stopping at Target Field Station can just leave their donations with the Northstar driver.
