Re: Public Transit News / Current Events (MN only)

The next quarterly update will be interesting. I assume to see many express trips added back as workers are pulled back into the office next fall.

Re: Highway Transitway Corridor Study

I’m questioning how this will be different from rt 270? Pre-Covid the schedule was 10-15 frequency during peak hours. As far as connecting to the U, I see the time loss to go down 280 and cut though the U as a big negative that will have Minneapolis riders upset. A transfer to the future E line will...

Re: Target Center Renovation

With news of the Timberwolves (and Lynx?) being sold by Glen Taylor to Alex Rodriguez and Marc Lore.

Let's hear your fantasy plans for redevelopment of Target Center after the teams are relocated out of Minnesota.

Re: Street, Road and Highway Projects

If any of you commute on Highway 10 through Anoka and Ramsay you're in for a world of hurt starting next year and running through ~2025 as three projects get underway. First is the project rebuilding Highway 10 from West Main to Thurston. West Main bridge gets replaced and exit ramps get round-abou...

This was an old mall too. So a little ahead of the trend of malls becoming housing?

Re: Riverview Corridor Streetcar

I've always said the CP Spur is such a NO BRAINER, I am amazed that they are trying to squeeze this into W 7th.

If they chose to shift to the CP Spur and dedicated ROW for the river crossing, could we see this shift from "modern streetcar" to LRT?

Re: Arterial Bus Rapid Transit Corridors

As more aBRT lines begin operation, I don’t see why Red, Gold, and Rush(purple?) are colors instead of letters. To me, it seems it will confuse the casual rider. Anything with a dedicated guideway or highway BRT will have a color to denote the difference. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Thanks f...

Re: Downtown Riverfront - Mill Ruins Park - Waterworks

I don't know that I realized how low the water level was going to drop. This says the river was 12 feet lower than normal! Some awesome pictures included in the story below.

Re: IDS Center

This looks like the trees stay where they are. Currently there are four benches that make a square planter around each tree. The new design has a more scattered seating. I think the reason the fountain was away from the mall entrance is because it is in the tallest part of the atrium. I notice the r...

Re: Southwest LRT (Green Line Extension)

Isn’t that almost a 2 hour ride? I’ve tried to use Green Line from events in Minneapolis over to the capital then transfer to a bus or Uber. It’s insanely long and slow.

Re: Hopkins - General Topics

When the SWLRT platform is basically going to be on the property line... it feels like a max parking ratio should be 1:1.

Re: Public Transit News / Current Events (MN only)

A lot of respondents already have a monthly bus pass, and caffeine is always welcome. How about a choice of a free day pass, fee weekend pass, or $5 off a monthly pass? (It would be interesting to know what percentage of riders have monthly passes.) Or support local businesses. Much like local taxi...
