At its core, Union Depot is a transportation center and offers several options for travelers. Whether headed out for a walk around Lowertown, taking a city bus to the airport, an intercity bus to Duluth or a train to Chicago, Union Depot is a hub for all types of transportation including Bus and Light RailAmtrak, Parking & Taxis,  Biking & Walking  and Boat options.

Passenger Pick-up/Drop-off
Family and friends dropping off/picking up passengers at Union Depot can do so in two different locations: on Kellogg Boulevard in front of the entrance or inside the parking ramp entrance located at Kellogg and Broadway in the short-term parking area (limited to 15 minutes).

Transit Corridors
Union Depot’s use as a multi-modal transportation hub is integral to the planning of many transit corridors serving the east metropolitan region. The Minnesota High-Speed Rail commission is focused on connecting the Twin Cities to Chicago via a second daily train. Riverview Corridor will connect the Mall of America and MSP airport with Union Depot and is under study to narrow route and vehicle options. The Rush Line BRT Project is being planned for transit improvements between downtown White Bear Lane and Union Depot. The METRO Gold Line will follow Interstate 94 from Woodbury/Lake Elmo and will bring commuters to Union Depot by bus rapid transit.  The Red Rock Corridor will connect Hastings to downtown Minneapolis via St. Paul.
