Getting around Minneapolis


The city of Minneapolis joined forces with Nice Ride a nonprofit based in Minneapolis, beginning in 2008 to launch a bike-sharing pilot. The program eventually expanded to St. Paul, and there are now 1,850 of the lime green Nice Ride bikes across the Twin Cities. Cost is $2 for a single ride and another $6 for a day pass. Customers who use that system must return the bikes to one of 200 gray stations and lock them up after each trip.

Metro, Bus and Taxi

The METRO system is a network of transit ways with frequent, all-day service between stations with enhanced amenities. Some METRO lines use trains, others use buses. Whether it runs on a road or on tracks, customers can expect trips at least every 15 minutes throughout most of the day.
