Hiawatha line fully open

The Hiawatha Light Rail line is finally open today. Unlike the first opening, I did not choose to ride today during the festivities. Standing around for hours is fine during the summer, but not in December. I did drive by the Bloomington Central station on my way home from Christmas shopping, however, and it was packed.

Although I don't live within walking distance of the line, I live close enough by bus. With the extension open, I don't see any reason to drive to the Mall of America ever again. Nor do I see much need to drive to the airport. This transit option is great for the area, and I hope to see more lines soon.
