Hop on the bus
Metro Transit operates one of the largest public transportation systems in the country. Riding public transit is a convenient and inexpensive way to get around. Fares range from $1.75 to $3.00, depending on time of day. If you're already downtown and need to hop a ride a few blocks, the fare is just 50¢ in the Downtown Zone. Look for buses marked “Free Ride” and pay no fare when boarding along Nicollet Mall or at the Minneapolis Convention Center.
Hail a cab
Cab services are available anywhere in the metro area. Catch a taxi at the Minneapolis Convention Center and any hotel, or call ahead for service.
