Skyline along the Mississippi, Minneapolis
 

Praktisk information Minneapolis, USA

Förflytta sig i staden

Getting around on foot in the downtown areas of the massive metropolitan area of Minneapolis and St Paul is a fascinating experience on the famous skyways, a network of enclosed walkways which connect buildings in the city centre at second-storey level, ensuring no pedestrian needs to be exposed to bad weather. About 69 blocks of downtown Minneapolis are connected by skyways. When your feet are tired, hop on the bus: MetroTransit operates one of the largest public transport systems in the United States, running about 73-million bus trips every year. Trip planners and route information are readily available in the city and from hotel concierges. The relatively new Hiawatha Light Rail Transit route links downtown to the airport and the Mall of America, and the Northstar Corridor route takes passengers as far north as Big Lake. The twin cities also have numerous taxi services, available on call or outside hotels and other public venues.
