Transportation

Ideally 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. During the school year, Associated Colleges of the Twin Cities (ACTC) buses run between Augsburg College and Macalester College, the University of St. Thomas, the College of St. Catherine, and Hamline University, providing access to and from numerous locations in St. Paul.

Meantime, a growing community of bike commuters takes 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.

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.
