The passenger terminal complex at Minneapolis St. Paul Airport consists of Lindbergh Terminal 1 (T1) and Humphrey Terminal 2 (T2) - divided by a runway and connected by the free underground light rail between their respective light rail stations, where trains run on opposite sides to: (a) the Humphrey Terminal, Bloomington & Mall of America; and (b) to Minneapolis.
