Ramsey Minnesota Gets Its New Transit Station!

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Don Sabinske, Sabinske & Associates Inc. 539MN

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!

I will never ever see anything of the sort where I live.  Once in a while I am a little jealous of "city folk", but most of the time I am happy I can drive on my schedule and not worry about crowed roads.

That is sweet!  I love the Elk Street Station.  And, the next time I am over there, I will check this one out, too.  It will be cool with the parking garage attached.

Great news for Ramsey. Glad to hear that there is progress being made and I'm sure it's going to help attract new residents.

Way to go on getting the Rail Station!  The good folks of Albuquerque have enjoyed the benefits of Rail Transit for several years and just keep on extending it... Once you have it you wonder what the heck were we waiting on!!!

This is a beautiful looking rail station - that is very exciting.  I bet the locals are anxious for the November 14th opening date!

Hello Don -- where's this bargain gas of which you speak -- $3.50/gallon?   I paid $3.99 yesterday --- the lowest price per gallon in weeks.  Ahh, Minnesota...

Public transportation is a big deal, and it can be a great selling point for an area. I'm glad Ramsey is getting 'on track' with this.
