The couple take the Metro Transit light rail system south for half a day.  It is a great example of a clean, efficient, and safe transportation system.  Train cars are heated in the winter and cooled in the summer.  It is a very good way to get from point A to point B in the Minneapolis/St. Paul metro area. 
Metro Transit to the Mall of America from downtown Minneapolis was less than 40 minutes.
