Transit to Green Space

Checking train schedulesCars and trucks are the biggest source of climate change pollution in Minnesota. So "go green" by taking the bus or train to parks. Sierra Club's Land Use and Transportation Team has organized hiking, biking, skiing, and snowshoeing outings using transit. You can too!

Everyone has the right to access parks and trails, including people who don’t own a car or who can’t drive. Transit to green space is important for equity and the environment. And getting there can be half the fun!

Transit to parks

Sierra Club Transit to Green Space outings have explored parks throughout the Twin Cities region. We've even used the Northstar train and bicycles for an overnight at Lake Maria State Park.

Plan your own transit to green space by using the transit option on your favorite mapping app. Happy trails!
