Transportation and Parking

As there is limited parking availability at and around Mayo Clinic, many employees choose to take a city bus, use a Park & Ride location or carpool. Visit Rochester Public Transit for more information about Rochester's city bus system and Park & Ride locations. The campus' downtown location also makes biking or walking convenient for many employees.

The city of Rochester, Minnesota, has a reliable, affordable bus system with regular stops at Mayo Clinic's downtown buildings and Mayo Clinic Hospital — Rochester. Mayo subsidizes bus passes for employees, which allows them to take city buses to work at no cost and take commuter buses from surrounding communities at a reduced cost. As bus service is not available during many nighttime hours, staff with work-related duties at night may need a car to commute.

Mayo operates an intercampus shuttle system that provides employee transportation between Mayo Clinic's downtown buildings, the Saint Marys campus of Mayo Clinic Hospital — Rochester, and Mayo parking lots near downtown.
