Local Transportation

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 the time of day. If you’re already downtown and need to hop a ride a few blocks, the fare is 50¢ in the Downtown Zone.

Metro Transit offers fast, frequent service to both downtowns and hundreds of other popular attractions. For an extremely efficient way to travel, zoom around town on the METRO Blue and Green lines, the Twin Cities light- rail transit (LRT) service. The METRO Blue Line connects downtown Minneapolis with the airport and Mall of America, and the METRO Green Line connects downtown Minneapolis, the University of Minnesota and downtown St. Paul.

To get to the conference from the hotel, hop on the Metro Green Line at 5th Ave S. & Washington Ave S to 19th Ave S.- 4th St/Riverside Ave.
