Best Bus Route

Route 94

While some people see public transportation as a party on wheels, the majority of bus riders are just looking for the quickest and easiest way to get around town. Running from downtown Minneapolis to downtown St. Paul, Route 94 provides a quick loop in both cities before hopping on I-94 for an express trip to the sister city. With a stop in between at Snelling Avenue, Route 94 helps you make your way between the Cities on the cheap, without the dozens of frustrating stops you'll encounter on other crosstown buses. Now all that's left for you to do is decide which Sudoku puzzle to do first.
