Transportation and Parking

Getting Here

Minneapolis-St. Paul International airport is served by direct national and international flights. To get to the conference and around town, there are a number of options, in addition to taxis and car service:

Light Rail

Light-rail service is available to Downtown Minneapolis from the Minneapolis/St. Paul airport. From the airport take the Minneapolis/Target Field Blue Line to the Nicollet Mall Station. Exit the train and enjoy a 10-minute stroll down Nicollet Avenue where you will find a plethora of sidewalk cafes, restaurants, and shopping. Or just head directly to the Hyatt and get ready for the conference.

The Trains operate 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and run approximately every 10−15 minutes. The trip from the airport to downtown Minneapolis generally takes 40-45 minutes. One-way fare is $2.00−2.50, depending on time of day. View light rail information and route map.
