What is CarHop?

Too many people put their faith in public transportation rather than looking for affordable used cars for sale. That leaves those in Crystal with:

  • Buses
  • Light Rail
  • Transit Link
  • Metro Mobility
  • Greyhound

Each is fine in its own right, but let’s explore why you’re better off looking for used car sales.


The Robbinsdale Transit Center is the closest depot to the center of Crystal, and you should be able to catch buses to Brooklyn Park, Plymouth, St. Louis Park, and other surrounding areas. The trouble is that missed connections will cost plenty of time, and you’ll likely need to make a few before reaching your destination.

Light Rail

There’s talk of expanding the METRO up to Crystal, but you can’t take yourself to work each day on talk. At present, the Light Rail doesn’t reach Crystal. Use it to get into the big city if you must, but keep in mind you’ll need to arrange some other kind of ride to even reach the nearest station.

Transit Link

This curb-to-curb minibus or van service operates through the seven-county metropolitan area. The major issue is that reservations must be made at least two hours in advance. They’re subject to availability, and Transit Link only operates on weekdays. It’s a decent last resort, but it’s a last resort nonetheless.

Metro Mobility

Works like Transit Link, but only for certified riders who cannot use regular fixed-route buses due to a disability or health condition. Again, you’ll need to book Metro Mobility in advance.


Nothing like the authentic long-distance bus experience of slipping into a cramped seat among 30 or so other passengers of varying hygiene. Of course, getting to your nearest station is the real trick. The closest Greyhound depots are in Maple Grove and Minneapolis, so expect a 15-30-minute car drive before you even reach the start of your journey.
