Buses and Light Rail

Minneapolis is well served by affordable public transportation. The local transportation network is MetroTransit. In addition to Visitor (day) Passes, a 50 cent downtown zone, and some limited free Nicollet Mall buses serving the Convention Center, MetroTransit has a great mobile app, through which you can purchase, store, and present tickets, view schedules, plan trips, and check on bus locations. Download the free app on Google Play or the App Store.
