Transportation & Lodging

Transportation

Car rental and other ground transportation is available at the Minneapolis/St.Paul airport. The most convenient way to get to a hotel on or near the university campus is to take a taxi. A single trip should cost no more than $50 (excluding gratuity). A cheaper alternative would be to take the Metro Transit light rail to a stop nearest your hotel. A single trip, during rush hour costs $2.25 ($1.75 outside rush hour). From the airport, take the Blue Line (Northbound) in the direction of Minneapolis/Target Field. Depending on the hotel you are staying at, you may need to transfer to the Green Line (Eastbound) in the direction of St Paul/Union Depot.

If you need any additional information on transportation, please don’t hesitate to ask.
