State Fair Express Bus service features free parking and a direct bus ride to the fairgrounds for a small fee from farther-out suburbs around the Twin Cities. Twenty Express Bus lots are serviced by Metro Transit, Minnesota Valley Transit Authority and Southwest Transit.

In addition, several regular Metro Transit bus routes drop you off right at the fairgrounds. View a map of the Transit Hub at Gate #16 when it’s available here in August.
