The cheapest way ($2.25 peak, $1.75 off-peak) from the airport is to take the Downtown East/ Metrodome station, and then call the Radisson University's Shuttle at 612-362-6611.; a shuttle will pick people up on a first-come first-served basis. They suggest calling a few stops before reaching the Downtown East/ Metrodome station. The Radisson's light rail shuttle service operates from 7 am to about 9 pm.

An alternative is to transfer at the Downtown East/ Metrodome station to an eastbound 16 or 50 bus for the remaining 2 miles to the East Bank campus (get off the 16 or 50 at the Moos Tower stop on campus; the Radisson University is across Washington Avenue and half a block further east).

Important note:
The Radisson University Hotel does not have its own airport shuttle service; but it does have a shuttle to Downtown East/Metrodome light rail station and other nearby destinations.

The Super Shuttle (make a reservation) is a good option. A taxi ride can cost $40.
