MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Regular service has been restored to the Green Line LRT services in St. Paul after a brief outage Wednesday morning.

Just before 8 a.m., Metro Transit officials said a mechanical issue was to blame for disruptions near the University of Minnesota-area stops.

Buses were brought in to replace the trains between the Raymond Avenue and West Bank campus stops.

Repairs concluded around 9 a.m.

    This heavily taxpayer subsidized rail system should be flawless. The operating and maintenance cost are not anywhere near covered by the ticket price and lack of ridership.
