Inter-Terminal Shuttle Service

MSP's inter-terminal shuttle service is a courtesy transportation option between terminals for customers with mobility challenges.

The shuttle is provided as an alternative to the courtesy Light Rail Transit system for people with accessibility challenges, elderly people, families with young children or others with special needs.

The van is equipped with a wheelchair lift. This free service departs approximately every 20 minutes and runs at all times.

At Terminal 2, the shuttle picks up and drops off passengers on the ground level of the Purple Ramp. At Terminal 1, passengers are dropped off and picked up on the curb of the east roadway, Level 1 of the Gold Ramp. Look for overhead signs directing passengers.
