Free Buses in Minneapolis and St. Paul

Campus Connector (note:pdf download) offers free service between the St. Paul, East Bank and West Bank campuses of the University of Minnesota.   Designed for students, but they don’t check student ID. Does not connect to Downtown Minneapolis.

Take a Free Ride on select Nicollet Mall buses (Nicollet Mall stretches from one end of downtown Minneapolis to the other.) Seeing a lot of things downtown? Park at an end of this route for less money! Goes very close to Convention Center.


Bicycle Rental comes in many flavors…

https://www.niceridemn.org/bike_rental_shops/ tells you where to rent for your whole stay.

https://www.niceridemn.org/ is an interesting alternative. For $6 per day, you get access to a bike rental system centered on downtown Minneapolis. NOTE! There is a per trip charge for a trip of over 30 minutes! However you could hop skip and jump all over downtown with these bikes, for the daily or monthly fee.   With trips of under 30 minutes, there is no per trip charge, so it would just be the daily fee of $6.


“HOURCAR is the smart way to drive.”

HOURCAR offers 32 cars in Minneapolis and Saint Paul. Find out where your nearest HOURCAR lives, and sign up to drive today. (This HOURCAR location is a short bus ride away.)

Unfortunately, HourCar locations are generally closer to downtown.


Car Rental: Enterprise will pick you up!
