Transportation in Minneapolis
Taxis are a good alternative to buses when you're in a hurry, although you'll need to either call one or get one at a hotel cab rank. They won't stop if you try to hail them in the street.
The single-line Metro Transit Hiawatha Line train connects Downtown with the Mall of America and the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport; regular tickets are good for a single ride only. The bus network is extensive; a transfer (receipt), available from your driver, is good for unlimited bus rides for 2.5 hours.
Rent your car
Minneapolis has an extensive road network that is easy to navigate as it’s mostly laid out on a grid system. The winters can be harsh, so make sure your tyres have enough tread to deal with snow and carry anti-freeze and a scraper. There are numerous car parks and on-street meter parking
A 6-Hour Pass, Day Pass, or SuperSaver 31-Day Pass will give unlimited travel on the Metro train and bus lines and save on fares.
