Airport Public Transit Directory


Metro Transit provides light rail service from both terminals at MSP to downtown and
the warehouse district to the north and the Mall of America to the south.  Service
operates from about 4:00am to 2:00am daily, about every 8 to 15 minutes,
depending on time of day (twice an hour during the lowest periods).  Fare during
rush hour is $2.00, $1.50 all other times.  Transfers between terminals are free.  It is
possible to visit the Mall of America on a long layover, but give yourself ample time
get through security and back to the gate.  The trip to the Mall only takes 11 minutes.
 Metro transit also has one bus line that serves the airport.  Route 54 goes to
downtown St. Paul and the Mall of America.  Buses run about every 15-30 minutes
