The Northstar Commuter Rail and Northstar Link Commuter Bus will provide service for all Minnesota Vikings pre-season and regular season home games at TCF Bank Stadium.

The Northstar Link Bus will run from St.Cloud or Becker to the Northstar train in Big Lake. The train runs to Target Field Station where you transfer to the Metro Green Line for free to get to TCF Bank Stadium. The travel time between St. Cloud and the stadium is just over two hours, including time for fare purchase and transfers.

For the return trip, the westbound Metro Green line goes to Target Field Station. The northbound train will leave the Target Field Station 90 minutes after the game ends. The Northstar Link bus will meet the train in Big Lake and will serve all stops.

Separate fares are required for the Northstar Bus and Northstar Train. The cost to ride Northstar between St. Cloud and Big Lake is $2 and between Becker and Big Lake is $1.

Fares for the Northstar train from Big Lake to Target Field station range between $5.25 on the weekend and $6 for a weekday.

There are round trip family passes available.
