Area to get new express bus service to downtown Mpls.

Commuters in the Anoka County cities of East Bethel, Ham Lake and Blaine will have new Metro Transit express bus service to downtown Minneapolis starting Monday.

Route 865 will make nine morning trips and nine evening trips on Hwy. 65 on weekdays. Three trips will serve the new park-and-ride lot at the East Bethel Theatre, 18635 NE. Ulysses St., while three will serve a parking lot Metro Transit is leasing at Family of Christ Lutheran Church, 16345 NE. Polk St., Ham Lake.

All nine trips will stop at the Paul Parkway Park and Ride lot, a 400-stall surface lot under construction at Paul Parkway and NE. Ulysses Street in Blaine. The lot is expected to open by the end of the month, said Metro Transit spokesman Drew Kerr.

The portion of Route 865 serving Ham Lake and East Bethel will test the market potential in those cities. Service will be evaluated after three years.
