Getting Between the Terminals

Getting 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 10 minutes during peak times and 15 minutes at other times of day. However, in response to the COVID-19 virus, Metro Transit has suspended overnight operations of the Blue Line between 9 p.m. and 6 a.m., effective April 16, 2020. A shuttle provides service between Terminal 1 and Terminal 2 during that period. 

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