The Central Corridor Light Rail line will connect downtown Minneapolis and St. Paul. The 11-mile route runs primarily along University Avenue and will have 23 stations when it begins operating in 2014. Known as the Green Line, train service will run from Union Depot in downtown St. Paul to Target Field in Minneapolis.
