Checked out Hopkins for the first time last night. I'm a city dweller and hardly leave the area between the two downtowns, but got to wondering how the commute from Hopkins into downtown Minneapolis and vice versa would be during rush hours...

is it horrible?

are there transit options other than a local bus that would take over an hour?

Anyone do this regularly that can speak to the time it takes?

I used to do east Minnetonka to downtown Minneapolis. It wasn't a terrible commute unless it snowed. I would usually drive, 494 or 169 north to 394. Sometimes I would catch the bus from the Plymouth Rd. park and ride, and that worked pretty well. There's a big park and ride at 394 and Louisiana that may be more convenient from Hopkins. I'd put the usual time at 20-30 minutes, and 45 minutes to an hour in bad traffic and weather.

Check the Metro Transit website for bus information (you can enter your start and end locations and times); I'm assuming there are some rush hour express buses that could get you downtown pretty fast.

Or give it a few (or many, given how slow things move around here...) years and you can take LRT! I think Hopkins is really going to benefit from that in the future.
