transportationIdeally situated at the junction of multiple Metro Transit bus lines, and only 1.5 blocks from the Franklin Avenue light rail stop, Augsburg benefits from its location at one of the busiest crossroads in the Minneapolis-St. Paul area.

Transcending the usual dependence on automobiles, Augsburg students, faculty, and staff take advantage of subsidized monthly transit passes that greatly reduce the costs of riding the bus or using the light rail.

The ever-growing community of bike commuters take advantage of our close proximity to the metro area’s extensive bike trail system and the Midtown Greenway just a few blocks south of campus. Bike rentals are also available on campus. Free twenty-four hour bike rentals are available for check-out from Lindell Library. Commercial bike rentals are available from Nice Ride, which features a docking location on Riverside Avenue.

To further encourage the use of alternative forms of transportation, the college serves as an HOURCAR hub, offering a Honda Prius (with a hybrid gas-electric engine) for those inevitable short jaunts off-campus.
