Airport Transit Service

Let Metro Transit be your ground transportation.

Metro Transit offers fast, frequent service between the airport, downtown Minneapolis, downtown St. Paul and Mall of America.

City bus and light-rail service is available at the transit station, located on the east side of the Blue and Red parking ramps. To reach the station, follow the Ground Transportation signs to the lower level, then take the tram.

Have a long layover? MSP Tours can help you spend it exploring the Twin Cities by light rail. They offer customized, guided audio tours of top destinations based on your interests. Contact MSP Tours here.

To board light rail, take the escalator down one level from the tram level and purchase a rail ticket from the machine. Continue down another escalator to the rail platform.

To board buses, take the escalator up one level (street level) from the tram level.
