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.
Sponsored by the University of Minnesota, the University of Wisconsin and the U.S. Department of Energy.
