MINNEAPOLIS - The Minnesota Vikings are taking over TCF Bank Stadium for their home games for the next few seasons and there are several options open to fans getting to the games.

You can of course drive to the game and park on the University of Minnesota campus. A free shuttle is being offered from St. Paul to the stadium. The University does warn fans to expect congestion and encourages them to take other modes of transportation.

Biking is encouraged and there are many bike racks on campus to secure your bike.

Metro Transit will be offering light rail directly to the game. The Green Line travels from St. Paul to Minneapolis through the University of Minnesota campus. The Green Line stops at Stadium Village Station located south of the stadium on 23rd Avenue.

It's a bit more complicated coming from the Metro Blue Line. Fans can park at the free Park & Ride at Fort Snelling and 28th Avenue stations, ride the train to downtown Minneapolis, and transfer to the Green Line at the Downtown East Station.

Northstar trains will be operating for each preseason and regular season Vikings home game.

SouthWest Transit will be offering express bus service to and from each regular season home game. Round-trip fares are $5. There are Park & Ride locations in Chaska, Chanhassen or Eden Prairie.

Visit the Metro Transit website for more information about getting to and from the Vikings games.
