Metro Transit

Metro Transit is the transportation resource for the Twin Cities, offering an integrated network of buses, light rail, and commuter trains. Rush hour fares are $2.50, normal fares are $2.00, but All-Day or 24-hour Passes may be a better deal. Metro Transit recommends the 7-Day To pass for anyone who would like unlimited rides on the Light Rail or City Buses for a longer period of time. You can order a Go-To pass online and have it mailed to you before you depart. (You can buy single fare, all-day, or 24-hr passes at rail stations; see the Go-To Card Store for all purchase options.)

The Blue Line light rail stops at both terminals of the airport. To reach the University of Minnesota campus and the conference venue, you will need to transfer to the Green Line, which runs between downtown Minneapolis and downtown St. Paul. The Green Line East Bank stop is in front of the Graduate Hotel and close to the McNamara Alumni Center.

Green Line stops are located close to the Twin Cities’ regional bus depots and Amtrak station.

MetroTransit’s Trip Planner tool allows you to enter your departure, destination, and time of day, and returns results showing how to use transit to get there.
