Re: Arterial Bus Rapid Transit Corridors

There are so many apartment buildings within the catchment area of the route. The ability to have a high quality route to connect to Brooklyn Center and Minneapolis would be amazing.

Honestly I think it would be a logical extension of the C line

Re: C Line - Penn Avenue North Rapid Bus

The idea of extending it to West End or South of the rail trench to south, has too many costs and ineffiencies for what you gained compared to Glenwood which presently has probably more density than most of the C Line and is in the developing Harrison neighborhood. A chunk of this stretch also has ...

Re: C Line - Penn Avenue North Rapid Bus

The easiest way to extend it south would be to have it Take Cedar Lake Rd/Wayzata Blvd out of Bryn Mawr and then it could take Ewing/France to the W. Lake St SWLRT Station. There's a lot of dead zone in that route without much transit potential to duplicate a route that could be taken with a transf...

Re: B Line Lake St Rapid Bus, Midtown Rail Transit

I don’t think it’s funded yet. Doesn’t it still need the state senate to vote?
It does. My bad I didn't read that correct and got to excited

Re: Red Line (Cedar Avenue BRT)

How about extending it to Minneapolis via 62/35W, then changing the color to Silver using the perfectly reasonable rationale of having Red and Orange interlining for half the route makes the map confusing for color deficient people (like me!) You do bring up a great point about confusion for color ...

Re: Bottineau LRT (Blue Line Extension)

Today the Blue Line Extension held another corridor management committee meeting. I think I was the only person not on the committee to call in, so that's moderately embarrassing. I'd invite others to tune in. This is important stuff. Governor Tim Walz was on the call. I wonder if he decided to dro...

Re: Red Line (Cedar Avenue BRT)

Nah, let’s extend the C line down Cedar and reclaim the “Red Line” designation for either Riverview or Midtown. With Ramsey County looking to call the Rush Line “Purple” (it should be Silver IMO), we’re basically gonna be out of colors, unless we’re gonna go Chicago style and do Pink & Brown. Yello...

Re: Green Line LRT

Knew it was jus a matter of time before that happened. Especially by the time the green line got extended i cant imagine eden prairie being cool with people sleeping on the train overnight.

Hopefully service will be reinstated by the winter

Re: Labeling the Transit System

Im not talking bout the Robert Street South corridor. But when Rush line goes into downtown it arrives on robert street crossing the path of the gold line. That would make sense to extend the gold to minneapolis although if we're having a second rapid transit line between mpls and st paul. I think i...

Re: Ayd Mill Road

I think a two-lane AMR is a great idea. Considering that the ramps to/from 35E are one lane each, I'm not convinced that AMR needs two. It can probably still have a 45 mph speed limit due to its grade separation so the shortcut would still be there as an incentive to keep traffic off the local stre...

Re: Ayd Mill Road

What if Ayd Mill Road becomes the continuation of MN-51 or MN-280 so it has state funding. Connect it to I-94. Then traffic calm Snelling south of I-94 with a turnback. And either make it a 3-Lane road or give it bus lanes for the A-Line. Ayd Mill can even turn into a Super-2.with merging lanes and ...

Is there any reasoning to why there is no stop for the Xcel Energy Center? Seems strange for no stops between grand avenue and the green line. Unless i missed something in the project documents.

Re: Labeling the Transit System

What if the Gold line turns into the rush line at Robert street. With an added stop on the riverview line at kellogg to serve west downtown and the xcel energy center and what would have been the rest of the gold line. This would make sense as they are both mostly exclusive right of way BRT. And it ...
