Ride free

Look for buses marked “Free Ride” and pay no fare when boarding along Marquette and 3rd Avenues. You’ll have an easy ride between the Convention Center and the METRO Blue and Green lines on 5th Street.

Ride for free from the Minneapolis Convention Center here:

  • • board a northbound Route 18 between Nicollet & Grant to Hennepin & 3rd Street
  • • get on a southbound Route 10 or 59 between Hennepin & 3rd Street and the Convention Center.

Free Ride buses travel north into downtown Minneapolis and end at Washington Avenue. They are available seven days a week from 5 a.m. to 1 a.m. between. Pay just 50 cents if you ride within the Downtown Zone on other routes.
