Re: Rush Line Corridor BRT

I'm a bit skeptical about whether this would inspire parking lots to be developed.

Oh wait, already bus-only lanes... isn't that what the commissioners were arguing about?

Re: Gold Line BRT (Gateway Corridor)

Nobody riding end to end on this line would be inconvenienced by adding the "loop." Those people who don't want the loop will still be able to get on/off the bus near the Union Depot. Adding the loop simply adds an option for people starting or stopping further west. Additionally, from what I read d...

Re: Rush Line Corridor BRT

That being said, I'm not sure I wouldn't rather transfer to Green Line for DT MPLS and have the Rush go somewhere else in St. Paul. If it goes on 94 I imagine the bus would be faster than the Green Line, but it would be interesting to compare times from the Robert/14th stop to DT MPLS on both routes...

Re: Rush Line Corridor BRT

We need to have a serious conversation about the Union Depot and Ramsey County's fixation with all routes leading there.

Re: Saint Paul - General Topics

I've been told State Supply is a willing seller of their property, but I don't know if this proposal includes that space. The developers are going to present at the next Railroad Island Task Force meeting.

Re: Rush Line Corridor BRT

totally agree with this, tmart. Maybe Maplewood Mall should build a circulator system that goes around their property, including the Rush Line stop by the hospital... It could have door to door service to each of the mall anchors.

60-75 unit building proposed for 520 Payne Ave site (near E 7th), currently an empty lot. On Facebook neighbors appear to not like that it will involve low-income housing tax credits.

Re: Rush Line Corridor BRT

I was pretty disappointed with the Maryland Avenue station placement, but then they decided to add the Cook Ave station, which is close not only to the Hmong Village shopping center, but also Baldinger Bakery, Duluth Case Rec Center, and some apartment buildings west of Phalen Blvd. I was quite surp...

Re: Former West Publishing / County Jail development site

I guess there may be different definitions of timid. It is super easy from CHS, but getting to CHS from the West Publishing site is another story.

Re: Fantasy maps

I wonder if the 82 would have enough ridership to justify service. Maybe it should be the #3B...
#80 also doesn't go downtown, so both WBA buses require a transfer to get DT.
On the whole, however, I do favor a more grid-like system, so this might be an advantage in terms of route predictability.

Re: Fantasy maps

So the Gold Line replaces the 94X? Has there been any public conversation around this? I like the Como/Maryland bus idea. I'm curious about extending the Gold Line but not the Rush (Purple). Does this have something to do with the approach direction into Union Depot? 66 Earl bus is interesting, take...

Re: Bottineau LRT (Blue Line Extension)

a regional approach? I'd rather scrap these commuter lines and focus on upgrading transit in the urban core of MPLS & StP. We don't need to encourage sprawl.

Re: Fantasy maps

I would love to see the Purple Line go past DT St. Paul, but in doing this it doesn't go to the Union Depot, and that appears to be a non-starter with Ramsey County.
Do you think once it's out of the Ramsey County's hands and into the hands of the Met Council they could rethink the Union Depot focus?
