Ramsey County Parking Programs
Through an agreement with ABM, Ramsey County full-time and regularly scheduled part-time employees can take advantage of discounted parking rates at 390 East Kellogg Boulevard (beneath the Lafayette Bridge). The monthly cost for parking is only $40.00, and is deducted from your paycheck on a pre-tax basis, saving you even more money.
The County also has parking arrangements with the Block 19 parking ramp near Metro Square for $105/month and the Science Museum parking ramp for $80/month. Payroll deduction is available for these locations as well.

Find bus schedules, trip planners, Rider Alerts, and more. Take advantage of these planning tools to make your bus trip easy and efficient!
Carpooling and vanpooling allow participants to divide driving costs and responsibilities, making the trip to work less expensive and more relaxing. Carpools with at least two people and vanpools with at least five people traveling to work together at least three days a week can obtain preferential parking and other benefits.
Walking and biking to work are two of the easiest forms of commuting. Is your worksite too far away? Consider walking or biking for part of your commute and make this your exercise routine! And remember, all Metro Transit buses and trains have bike racks, so you can combine busing and biking as a commute option.
Guaranteed Ride Home
Do you bus, carpool, vanpool, bike or walk to work three or more times a week? If so, you are eligible for the Guaranteed Ride Home program.
