    • The Metro Transit connects the public throughout the Minneapolis/St. Paul area. The express bus route goes into nearby Shakopee and has a stop in Downtown Prior Lake. Seniors can ride at a discounted rate with proof of age or disability.

    • Seniors and their loved ones may appreciate the low crime rate in Prior Lake. Violent crime at 22.9 out of 100 is lower than the U. S. average of 31.1 (1 being safest). Property crime is lower as well at 26.1 to 38.1.
