You can walk down to University Ave and catch the 16 bus to downtown - here's the link:

http://metrotransit.org/. Just enter Amtrak Station then Target Center as the destinations.

You can also grab a cab, probably for less than $15, they're likely sitting there awaiting fares.

There's a link to transportation options for Train station at the hotel's link:

hiexpress.com/hotels/…directions

For public transportation, use the TripPlanner link from Metro Transit here:

metrotransit.org/TripPlanner/Default.aspx

Both Amtrak (in St. Paul) and HIX (Minneapolis) have listed locations.

The other option is the use http://maps.google.com and under options select public transportation.

As an FYI, University Ave is currently under heavy construction as the next stage of the Twin Cities light rail system is being installed. It shouldn't affect the bus route other than it may run a little slower than what is listed on the schedule.

As a resident of St. Paul's Midway neighborhood i can't wait for this to be done....for many reasons!
