ST. CLOUD -- Fans who are heading to Minnesota Vikings home games this season will be able to take the Northstar Commuter Rail and Northstar Link to the games.

New this year is the ability to buy your tickets online.

Single tickets or a family pass are available for the rail line. Tickets for the Northstar Link commuter bus are sold separately. Information on tickets, schedules and fare information are available at www.catchthelink.com.

The buses are timed to connect with the rail line at the Big Lake station.

If you take the Northstar Rail Line, you can transfer free of charge to the Hiawatha Light Rail Line for the last leg of the trip.
