The Star Tribune reported Wednesday that the Northstar commuter-rail line will be making some changes including an extra trip Sunday after the Vikings game and earlier departure times.

            The Vikings-Bears game at the Metrodome Sunday afternoon is the reason for an extra departure time on Sunday. 

Starting Monday, trains from downtown Minneapolis will depart five minutes earlier than the times listed on the original schedule, according to transportation officials. 

The change was made in an effort to better serve customers who were feeling rushed.  "The extra five minutes will give customers a reliable connection to their homebound trains," said Adam Harrington, assistant director of route and system planning.

The Minnesota Daily reported Nov. 15 that Metrotransit's Northstar rail line serves the north metropolitan area including Anoka, Big Lake, Coon Rapids/Riverdale, Elk River, and Target Field.
