map Although the MetroNorth Chamber of Commerce includes business members from the entire Twin Cities area, the primary region that we serve is Anoka County, north of Minneapolis. It's a big area (424 square miles), with a big population (300,000 people) and equally big ideas.
Transportation by car and truck is convenient throughout MetroNorth's territory. Our main east-west traffic artery is US-10. Several major highways - I-35, MN-65, US-169, and the new freeway, 610 - lead south to Minneapolis, St. Paul, and the inner ring of suburbs.
Bus lines from Metro Transit (612-373-3333), along with park-and-ride lots, are available in the southern part of the County. The Anoka County Traveler provides door-to-door service throughout the County by appointment (763-323-5222). The Anoka County Airport in Blaine is the busiest of six "reliever airports" for the region's major hub, the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport. The Blaine location handles some 200,000 private and corporate flights per year.
Planning is underway for a commuter rail line that will link our area with downtown Minneapolis. From there, light rail service now under construction will provide a fast link to the International Airport and
Mall of America.
