Service sucks on the light rail. Took forever to get a drink, the rail attendant was poorly dressed, smelled and I literally had to take the drink out of the paper sack. Never riding again...

We took the transit from Mall of America to the US Bank Stadium, probably the best decision we could have made. Very affordable. Bonus was the free wifi!

Easy to access at the airport. Very efficient and economical (at 2.00 to 2.50 for a two hour transit card). I take the Blue line whenever I fly into MSP and it works well. Regular service and quite quick.

If you need to get around the Twin Cities area, Public transportation is easy! I felt no need to rent a car or attempt to find my away around town. The trains, buses and skyways are great!

Whether you're heading to the airport, Mall of America, or St. Paul hopping on the light rail could not be easier. Find a station along the line and hop on the green for St. Paul or the blue for anywhere else. There's convenient prepay machines...More

There are some seats in each carriage with room for luggage next to them. Also platforms and carriages at same height so easy for wheeled cases, no heavy lifting.
