Re: Gold Line BRT (Gateway Corridor)

Strib article on the subject: http://www.startribune.com/maplewood-considers-bridge-over-94-to-increase-access-to-gold-line-bus-route/505575742/ Bonus points to 3M for having "security concerns" about connecting a hundred suburban houses to their basically-private bus stop. Love the idea of this, i...

Re: Public Transit News and Current Happenings

I don't get it either. It seems like - despite massive funding shortfalls - MT is doing things better every year. My thought and others I have talked to, they needed a scapegoat for the homeless on the train. Which if true, is despicable. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk https://uploads.tapatalk-...

Re: E Line Arterial BRT

https://twitter.com/TCTRU/status/1083490246287867909 I wonder what this means for the E Line? Also, the Future Projects page towards the end mentions a new limited stop service to Maplewood Mall. Kinda looks like the route 54 extension to me. Right? The city is preventing it currently, but I think ...

Re: Gateway Tower (RBC/Four Seasons) - 37 stories - 503'

This is clearly a bluff... one that the city needs to call. There's no way RBC gets this far along in the process with the knowledge that this was a low probability approval. At this point, what does it hurt them to talk tough to try to get it? 100% agree. Everyone involved knows the rules and long...

Re: Transit Crime

Smoking and Litter has been a big problem for Metro Transit within the last year, it is getting out of hand. Really we need our police officers riding trains and being at platforms instead of being in patrol cars.

Re: Public Transit News and Current Happenings

Purple is a nice color that's not used a lot, looks great, and reflects our most popular sports team and our most famous cultural figure. I wouldn't rename the Blue or Green Lines, especially since people are used to them by now, but I think it'd be cool to see a Purple Line sooner rather than late...

Re: C Line - Penn Avenue North Rapid Bus

Do we know if the C Line will open in March or June yet? (It has to be one of those as it must coordinate with a quarterly service "pick"). The A Line opened in June 2016 (after initially being planned to open in Dec. 2015). The website says: "Major construction on Penn Avenue is complete. There is...

Correct, but one system branded METRO because they provide the same type of service.

Re: Public Transit News and Current Happenings

I hope that map isn't a final design, since it looks kinda rough. Pretty great seeing all of those routes on the official metro map, though! I was just looking at the map again. The Rush Line is incorrect. It should connect to the Green Line around Regions. I think this map makes it clear that the ...
