September 22nd is Car Free Day!


The spotlight shines on Minneapolis in the countdown to Super Bowl LII.  Over 100,000 visitors per day are expected in Minneapolis in the ten days leading up to kick-off.  This once-in-a-generation event can be celebrated by visitors, commuters and residents alike.

Amid the hoopla, Minneapolis is still open for business! Downtown’s 160,000 workers will keep pace alongside the thousands of Super Bowl guests.

For Downtown Employers & Commuters:

Downtown’s 65,000 parking spaces are in high demand. If you have a parking contract check with your contractor to see if there are restrictions leading up to Super Bowl.

Better commuting options to driving alone.

Transit:  Bus, light rail and the NorthStar Commuter Rail are fast and inexpensive ways into and out of downtown. Park & Ride lots surrounding the Twin Cities provide free parking and fast access to Express Bus service into downtown. Move Minneapolis provides free trip planning to help determine the best route for you.  Move Minneapolis is located at 505 Nicollet Mall at the Minneapolis Visitor Information.

Carpooling: A vehicle with two or more people (including infants) is considered a carpool and can use the Express Lanes on I-394, I-94 and I-35W toll-free.

Telework: Sometimes the best commute is no commute. e-workplace works with employers to facilitate telecommuting one or more days per week.  The weeks leading up to Super Bowl offers an ideal opportunity to test teleworking working for downtown employers.
