Getting Around on the Ground

There are several ways to travel to and from the terminals, and all over the Twin Cities once you’ve arrived.

Jefferson Lines scheduled bus service

As of August, 2020, off-airport parking shuttles, bus services including Jefferson Line, Landline and charters operate out of the Silver Ramp. 

To reach the new facilities in the Silver Ramp, travelers will take the underground tram from Terminal 1 toward the Red and Blue parking ramps and light rail station. After getting off the tram, follow the signs for rental cars and the transit center. You will need to take an escalator or elevator up one level after entering the new building.

Moving from terminal to terminal

Moving between MSP’s terminals is free on the light rail transit (LRT) service.

Trains run between terminals around the clock, seven days a week, approximately every 15 minutes. 

The light rail transit page has more information about LRT service at MSP.
