Travel to DPF'96

By Air

Minneapolis-St. Paul (MSP) airport is located about 7 miles from the University of Minnesota's Twin Cities Campus. A discount on round-trip air travel to DPF'96 is available from Northwest airlines. The agreement is valid from August 7 to August 19, and the following discounts apply:
You may book using these discounts either directly with Northwest, or using your travel agent. To book directly, call (800) 328-1111. Parties of 10 or more may also call (800) 328-2216. Please quote the DPF worldfile reference number NSA2H. This discount agreement is valid within the continental United States and Canada only.

The preferred mode of transportation for single travellers from the airport to the University of Minnesota campus or the DPF96 hotels is van service, which can be arranged at the ground transportation desks below the baggage claim level of the main terminal (no reservations are required). Participants travelling directly to Tate Laboratory should request van service to the Radisson Hotel Metrodome and then walk two blocks west on Washington Ave. to Tate Laboratory. The van leaves from the airport shuttle area every 15-20 minutes and the current charge is $10 per person one-way, or $15 round-trip.

To travel from the university to the airport, the van leaves from the Radisson hotel at 35 minutes after the hour, between 5:35am and 8:35pm. Reservation are required for this direction of travel, at least two hours in advance - call Airporter Van at 827-0130.

A taxi from the airport to the University or the DPF96 hotels will cost $15-$20 and will take about 20 minutes. This will be cheaper and faster than van service for groups of two or more people.

Public bus transportation from the airport to the University costs about $1 and takes about an hour.

Car rental is also available from a number of companies at the airport.

Bus or Train

The University is located about 2 miles from the Minneapolis Greyhound Bus Station and about 3 miles from the St. Paul- Minneapolis Amtrak Station. Both taxis and public buses operate between those locations and the University.

Driving

Maps of the Twin Cities and Minneapolis campus are available here. There are also some more detailed travel directions, both to Minneapolis, and to the University, including some parking information.
