Light Rail

Light rail service to the airport is available. Trains stop at the Lindbergh Terminal and connect travelers to 15 other destinations, including downtown Minneapolis to the north and the Mall of America to the south. Service to the Humphrey Terminal has been temporarily suspended while an adjacent parking ramp is constructed and will resume in the autumn of 2007.

In the meantime, a free shuttle bus is available to take you door-to-door between airport terminals. The shuttle bus stop at the Lindbergh Terminal is at the ground level Transit Center, located between the Blue and Red parking ramps and near the entrance to the Lindbergh Terminal light rail station. The shuttle bus stop at the Humphrey Terminal is at the Ground Transportation Center on the ground level of the existing Humphrey Terminal parking ramp. Shuttle buses between MSP's two terminals run around the clock, seven days a week, at 10-minute intervals, on average.

Light rail trains to the Lindbergh Terminal run every 7 or 8 minutes during peak hours and every 10 to 15 minutes at other times of the day. From MSP, trains can take you to the Mall of America in about 11 minutes and to the Warehouse District in downtown Minneapolis in about 25 minutes.

Minneapolis - Car Parking

Parking

Covered parking is available in ramps across the street from both the Lindbergh and Humphrey terminals at MSP. Both ramps are connected to the terminals via climate-controlled skyways.

Save $2 per day by using e-park. Simply insert your credit or debit card into the card reader at the ramp entrance. This will mark the time you entered airport parking. Use the same credit or debit card to pay at one of the e-park exit lanes. The system is fully automated; no waiting in long lines for a cashier. The e-park option is available in both General and Short Term parking facilities. A receipt is available at the push of a button.

For maximum savings, park in the General ramp at the Humphrey Terminal. The Humphrey General ramp costs $4 less per day than General parking at the Lindbergh Terminal. You can travel between terminals on a shuttle bus. Shuttles run approximately every 10 minutes around-the-clock. There is no charge for this service.

Parking Tip:

Parking ramps at the airport's Lindbergh Terminal sometimes fill on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. If you are parking at the airport on those days, you might wish to consider saving $4 a day and ensuring you find an open parking space by parking at the Humphrey Terminal instead. A free shuttle bus will take you to the Lindbergh Terminal for your flight. Allow an extra 30 minutes for parking and transportation between terminals.

Passenger Pick up and Drop Off

Do you need to pick up or drop off someone at MSP? The process is fairly simple if you know your options and plan ahead.

Curbside Drop Off and Pick up

You may drop off and pick up travelers at the curb in front of MSP's terminals. If you choose this option, please keep in mind the following rules:

Federal security regulations prohibit leaving your vehicle unattended, even for a short time. Unattended vehicles will be ticketed and towed. You may park at the curb in front of a terminal only long enough to drop off or pick up a waiting traveler. When picking up, the traveler must be waiting outside the terminal before you park; parking your vehicle at the curb while you wait for arriving travelers to emerge from the terminal is prohibited.

Parking

Avoid the hassle of circling airport roadways, waiting for travelers to emerge from the terminal. Parking in the airport's covered, short-term ramps costs only $5 for the first hour, $3 with e-park. You can walk from parking to the terminal without ever going outside.

Where to meet arriving travelers inside a Terminal

Due to federal security regulations, meeting travelers at their arrival gate is generally no longer possible. Instead, consider meeting them at Baggage Claim, which in both terminals is open to the public. In the Lindbergh Terminal, the Starbucks Coffee shop, the Flowers on the Fly flower shop or the Firefighter Memorial statue on Baggage Claim Level make ideal designated meeting sites.

Other out-of-the way meeting spots include:

The Mezzanine overlooking the Lindbergh Terminal's Ticketing Lobby, near skyways to the Green or Gold parking ramps. At a particular terminal exit door (each terminal has exit doors marked 1 through 6). If you choose this option at the Lindbergh Terminal, make sure you specify Ticketing Level or Baggage Claim Level. Near the Travel Mart on the First Floor of the Humphrey Terminal.

Accessibility

Airport Welcomes All Travelers

A number of services are available at MSP to assist people who require extra assistance.

Making prior arrangements for wheelchair availability and access, oxygen requirements, and other accommodations before arriving at the airport will help ensure a smooth experience at the airport. Airline reservation agents and the airport's Travelers Assistance (TA) staff are available to address issues surrounding travel for persons who have special needs or are elderly.

Wheelchair Availability

Airlines provide wheelchairs for use throughout the Lindbergh and Humphrey terminals. Mention your need for a wheelchair in the terminal when you make your flight reservation. Most airlines have information about wheelchair access and other services available upon request.

Travelers Assistance (TA) volunteers can help with wheelchair requests while you are in the airport. TA volunteers may be reached by calling 612-726-5500. If you arrive at the airport without a wheelchair arranged through your airline, you may check out a wheelchair at the information booth on the Tram Level or at the security checkpoints. When you arrive at a security checkpoint, you may also ask to speak with a security supervisor and alert that person to your need for a wheelchair.

Passenger Pick Up and Drop Off

There are also designated passenger transfer areas for persons with disabilities on both levels by doors 1, 2 and 6. (Door 1 is the first door you come to as you approach the Lindbergh Terminal.)

Accessible Parking

Parking for people with disabilities is available on every level of the General and Short Term ramps at both MSP terminals. Lindbergh and Humphrey Short-Term parking ramps can accommodate vehicles up to 8 feet 2 inches tall. Vehicle clearance is 7 feet in the general ramps. Parking for people with disabilities is located near the entrances to the terminals and is available at general parking rates. Valet parking at the Lindbergh Terminal can accommodate vehicles up to 7 feet with handicap permits, but cannot accommodate vehicles with a wheelchair lift.

Accessible Transportation

Commercial Vehicles and Services:

Taxi and Shared Ride services are available from the Lindbergh and Humphrey terminals.

Go to Taxi Service

Metro Transit Bus:

Bus #54 operates from MSP and is accessible per ADA requirements. For citywide route information and schedules, call 612-373-3333. Buses pickup and drop-off at the Lindbergh Terminal's Transit Center.

Go to City Buses

Taxi Service:

Rainbow Taxicab Service is available upon request for persons with special needs. For reservations, call 612-332-1615.

Rental Cars with Hand Controls:

Rental cars with hand controls are available from airport rental agencies at no extra charge. Rental companies request at least a 48-hour advance reservation.

Taxi and commercial vehicles will pick up and drop off passengers at curbside if prior arrangements have been made between the company and Airport police. You may call your transportation provider directly to arrange this service. Courtesy phones for persons needing wheelchair assistance are located directly across form baggage carousels 6 and 10 on the Baggage Claim Level. Just lift the receiver and you will be connected to someone who can assist you. Passengers may also go to the Ground Transportation Atrium, one floor up from the Tram Level, to access all shuttle buses, taxis and limousines directly.

Go to Car Rental

Light Rail Service:

Light rail service to the airport is available. Trains stop at the Lindbergh Terminal and connect travelers to 15 other destinations, including downtown Minneapolis to the north and the Mall of America to the south. Light rail trains are zero-clearance to allow ease of boarding and exiting. The light rail station is located on the lowest level of the Transit Center. Upon arrival by light rail, take the escalators or elevators up to the appropriate levels to find ground transportation, Lindbergh terminal access and other services, including car rental.

Note: Rail service to the Humphrey Terminal has been temporarily suspended while an adjacent parking ramp is constructed. In the interim, around-the-clock bus service is available between the Lindbergh and Humphrey terminals until rail service to the Humphrey Station resumes in autumn 2007. All buses are ADA-compliant. The free shuttle buses operate approximately every 10 minutes between the Lindbergh Terminal's Transit Center and the Humphrey Terminal's Ground Transportation Center.

Electric Carts

Electric carts are available throughout the Lindbergh Terminal to transport travelers who are elderly or disabled. Two companies at MSP provide this service: Northwest Airlines contracts with Globe Aviation Services, while all other airlines contract with Primeflight Aviation Services.

In response to customer input, the "cart stop" approach was adopted at MSP to provide the best electric cart service to the traveling public. The cart stops are clearly marked with signs above blue chairs imprinted with the disabilities logo. The electric carts are scheduled to pick up passengers every 10-15 minutes. You will find “cart stops” directly inside security and at every gate along the C, D, E, F and G concourses. Consult your airline for services elsewhere.

Electric carts operated by Globe Aviation Services display signs on the cart indicating which concourses they serve. Carts operated by Primeflight Aviation Services do not display signs because its carts are not assigned to a specific concourse. Please be sure to ask cart drivers if they are going your way before getting onto a cart.

Electric cart service is not available at the Humphrey Terminal.

Accessible Restrooms

All restrooms at the Lindbergh and Humphrey Terminals are equipped with extra-wide stalls and side grab bars. Companion care restrooms in the Lindbergh Terminal can be found between checkpoints 1 and 2; in baggage claim near Door 2; near gates A3, A6, A9, B3, B7, B11, C3, C12, C16, C18, C21, C25 & F10; and on Tram Level near the escalators to the hotel shuttles.

There are three companion care/unisex restrooms at the Humphrey Terminal. On the first floor, the restroom is located across from the Airport Police Office, between doors 3 and 4. On the second floor, there are restrooms across from gates H4 and H6.

Telecommunication Devices

All pay telephones in the Lindbergh Terminal are hearing aid compatible. Phones with TDD capability can be found in several locations:

Ticketing Level: exit doors 2 and 6 Baggage Claim: exit door 3 Northstar Crossing: North end of shopping area Concourse A: food court between A1 & A2 Concourse C: gates C2 and C9 Concourse D: gate D4 Concourse E: gate E6 Concourse F: gate F2 Concourse G: gate G6

Phones with TDD capability at the Humphrey Terminal are located on each end of the terminal on the first and second levels.

MSP International Airport

Wireless Internet Access

For those without a laptop, Internet kiosks are available on Concourses C through G. Wireless Internet Access is available in most public areas of the Lindbergh Terminal once you pass security. Following are some questions and answers to help you get connected while awaiting your flight:

Do I need special hardware or software to use wireless service?

Your laptop or handheld PDA or Tablet PC must run Windows XP, NT, 2000, 98 or ME, or Macintosh OS 9 or OS10 and either have a built-in 802.11b (WiFi) capability or an external PCMCIA Network Interface Card (NIC).

How do I get connected?

Once your device is WiFi enabled, there are two ways in which you can get connected:

If your device is equipped with Windows XP, a few minutes after you turn on your device XP automatically finds the service and notifies you that a wireless network is available. Then check to make sure a wireless encryption protocol hasn't been activated on your device (perhaps because that is what you use in the office). If it has, you will have to turn it off. At that point, you are automatically associated with the network and simply launch your browser.

If you do not have XP, open the connection manager utility that is associated with your NIC and go to the tab that allows you to establish new profiles. When it asks for the SSID (service set identifier), enter "concourse" (case sensitive, don't use the quotation marks) and click on Apply.

If I already have a monthly subscription to a Wireless ISP, can I use it on this network?

This is what is known as roaming. In order for you to use your existing subscription, your WISP must have an access agreement with Concourse Communications, the company operating the network at MSP. Check with your WISP to find out if such an agreement has been executed. If not, you can still gain access using your credit card.

Is the service available throughout the airport?

Service is available throughout the public areas of both the Lindbergh and Humphrey terminals beyond the security checkpoints. There is also coverage in the Grieve Conference Center, both Northwest Airlines World Clubs, and the Northstar Crossing concession areas.

Conde Nast Readers Rank MSP Nation's Seventh Best Airport

MINNEAPOLIS-ST. PAUL? Conde Nast Traveler magazine's October 2006 issue includes results of a poll the magazine commissioned regarding the best hotels, airlines and airports. The business travelers polled rank Minneapolis-St. Paul International (MSP) the seventh best airport in the nation.

?It's always gratifying when travelers themselves rank Minneapolis-St. Paul International among the best U.S. airports,? said Jeff Hamiel, executive director of the Metropolitan Airports Commission, which owns and operates MSP. ?One of our goals in the $3 billion airport expansion program essentially completed last year was to make MSP an airport of choice for travelers. Polls such as this one indicate we hit the mark.?

Poll respondents ranked MSP particularly high in the categories of Location/Access, Food/Shops/Amenities, and Ease of Connections, followed by Safety/Security, Design, and Customs & Baggage.

MSP often scores well in traveler surveys. In 2005, MSP was voted the Best North American Airport by respondents to the annual Skytrax Airport Survey, and Airport Revenue News named MSP the Airport with the Best Concession Program Design, writing, ?Minneapolis has set the standard by which other airports are measured. They continue to lead.?

Minneapolis-St. Paul International is the nation's 10th busiest airport. For more information about MSP, visit its Web site at www.mspairport.com.
