View Full Version : MSP parking ?

(Posting this for a MSP guy in my crashpad)

Does anyone know of any parking in MSP, ie hotels/parking lots that will allow you to park for a fee and offer pickup from the terminal and UPS.

He is paying $15/$20 per ride to get back to the terminal. Looking for something with a flat fee per month and he can park at depending on who he is commuting on that week.

I think they have a train or rail of some sort from the Mall of America to the airport. Someone mentioned that to me the last time I was up there but I don't remember the exact details of it. I am thinking he may be able to park at the Mall or somewhere close, for free, and then take the train, if interested. It is not a long trip.

You can get commuter parking at the Humphrey terminal for $37/mo. You take the light rail over to the main terminal for free.

or you can park the car across from the light rail station at Mall of america (next to chevys).... for free.

Take the light rail back and forth to and from the airport. Get a goto card (like a debit card for the light rail) and save 10% :)

Watch out for parking overnight at the mall, they tow.

Thanks for the replies. He still needs to get a Pickup from UPS. All responses would work if he was just going to terminal, but flying out of the cargo side complicates it.

Anyone know any hotels that provides this service?

Thank you! I will be using this if I end up moving up there. :)

The times I commuted using UPS, the crew was going to the hotel...which, if I remember correctly, was right next to the light rail line. At the time I was using this commuting option, the light rail wasn't in place yet. I simply tipped the hotel shuttle driver, and he dropped my off at the Humphrey Terminal after he dropped the UPS crew off at the hotel.
