RAMSEY, Minn. - To celebrate the opening of the new Northstar Rail station in Ramsey, Metro Transit is offering free rides from all stations on Wednesday, Nov. 14 and Thursday, Nov. 15.
The Ramsey station was projected to cost $13.2 million dollars, but it came in under budget, costing between $11.5 to $12 million, according to Transit officials.
That also means the per-rider cost will be less, even considering a new platform heating system has been added to the project.
John Siqveland of the metro transit spoke on KARE 11 Sunrise from Ramsey, to talk about the new station and free rides.
