Light rail and Bus details
MSP does offer a Light Rail Transit (LRT) train stop at both Terminal 1-Lindbergh and Terminal 2-Humphrey. Trains run every 10 minutes during peak hours and typically every 10 to 15 minutes at other times of the day. From the airport, trains can take you to Mall of America in about 12 minutes and to the Warehouse District in downtown Minneapolis in about 25 minutes. For transportation to the Hyatt, take the Metro Blue Line - Northbound train and exit at Nicollet Mall Station.
