In Minneapolis, there are so many easy ways for you to get to where you need to go. Whether you’re visiting a top museum, hitting a live sporting evening, going out to dinner, or just exploring the city’s most popular attractions, you can find a method of transportation that’s perfect for you and your budget.
Metro Transit operates the buses in Minneapolis, which are part of one of the largest public transportation systems in the United States. Riding the bus is a simple and cheap way to get around the city. Fares start at just $.50 and go up to $3.00 max (prices depend on time of day and travel distance), and buses run on a schedule that accommodates many lifestyle needs.
Minneapolis’ Light Rail is also part of the Metro Transit system. The Light Rail Transit (LRT) connects the Minneapolis’ downtown area with the Mall of America, the airport, and 18 other stations around the city.
For just $6 at the time of this writing, you can get around the city on Minneapolis on a Light Rail Day Pass, which is good for the Metro buses, too. Metro Transit Multi-Day Passes are available as well, and they’re good for visitors who are staying in the city for a while.
