Purchasing a Seat
Reservations should be made as soon as your plans become definite, as some shuttles have been filling up. You will receive a confirmation email once your reservation has been received and space availability has been checked. The shuttle fee will be added to your student account. There is no "ticket" to board the bus; your name will be included on a passenger check list.

Departure/ Drop-Off Locations
- Shuttles depart from in front of Dahl Centennial Union.
Minneapolis-St. Paul Int'l Airport
- The bus departs from Terminal 1, Ground Transportation Area. From inside the airport, exit the baggage claim area by taking the escalator down to Ground Transportation. Follow the signs that say "Bus." You will board a tram in the Ground Transportation Area that will take you to the bus loading area. Once you get off the tram, proceed up the escalators (following the "Bus" directional sign). At the top of the escalator, there is a small waiting area where you can sit until the bus arrives at the appointed time (Terminal 1 Map).
- Pick up/drop off is in front of the main doors, under the canopy.
Please be respectful of the scheduled departure time; arrive at least 15 minutes early to get your luggage stored, etc. If you are not on the bus at the departure time there are no guarantees that the bus can wait for you; it is important that we remain on schedule.
Shuttle costs (one-way) are billed to student accounts two weeks after the actual shuttle takes place. Faculty and staff should fill out and return the payroll deduction form to pay for the shuttle.
- Rochester Airport: $20
- Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport: $30
