What makes a community more “liveable”? Mass transit, for one thing.
On Nov. 8, the city and its fellow funding partners for the Ramsey Northstar Commuter Rail station will celebrate the end of the station construction and the beginning of rail service in the city with a 1 p.m. ribbon cutting and a train ride to Elk River for invited guests.
Commuter rail service is expected to open on November 14th, 2012, and fares will be $3.50. Almost (now) less than a gallon of gas!
This is a great accomplishment for Ramsey which most people think of as a county and not a city. This will help with getting the word out that Ramsey is on its way back from the financial debacle of just a few short years ago.
The rail station will be an outstanding feature for Ramsey and having the service is will be a big selling point for future residents and a great addition to the community!
