Re: Public Transit News and Current Happenings

Metro Transit has posted the new schedules for Dec. 1, with pretty much everything discussed about before being included. The previous question about the 263 and 270 shows that it is a light restructure. 263 will be extended to the 61/CR C park and ride and the 270 will no longer stop there (save fo...

Re: Public Transit News and Current Happenings

Typically, service changes aren't brought before the council. I'm not sure why they decided to put these potential service changes before the Transportation Committee (as a non-action presentation item) and subsequently remove from agenda. I believe the only changes that go before the committee and ...

Re: Public Transit News and Current Happenings

Washington has significantly changed in the past 10-20 years, and is coming to the point where a crosstown line might be necessary. Also, the 7 used to run on 5th and 6th. When LRT construction started, it was moved to 4th both ways. Now that the reverse lane on 4th will be gone, northbound trips wi...

Re: Public Transit News and Current Happenings

Seems like the Transportation Committee has pulled the December service change presentation from Monday's meeting agenda. Interestingly, they are voting to proceed with an unsolicited proposal from Metropolitan Transportation Network, Inc (a school bus operator) to operate four Metro Transit routes ...

Re: C Line - Penn Avenue North Rapid Bus

I don't think this was shared with the forum, but Metro Transit made a decision about the Route 19 service after the C Line starts. They will proceed with Option A which: Consolidates the H and Y branches to use Thomas Ave between Lowry and 42nd during rush hours Extends the new Thomas branch to Bro...

Re: Fantasy maps

Gold Line naturally extends to Minneapolis because 5th and 6th become ramps to I-94. The 66 concept came about in the early 2000s but wasn't implemented. It would have travelled to Downtown along the same path as the 70. Given that there are plenty of transfer opportunities (63, 74, Gold, 70) I didn...

Re: Bicyclist Demographics (and popular image)

I used to bus/bike from Minneapolis to Edina in middle school. One day I got absolutely soaked along with my books, so definitely keep track of the weather.

I remember being sweaty quite a bit also, so probably good to have a shirt change at least handy - maybe kept in the lockers at school.

Re: Public Transit News and Current Happenings

The closer ones are free and paid for by the fair as a parking/traffic management solution. The reach has definitely spread in recent years, with this year's additions being two lots north of 694 in Arden Hills and White Bear Township. I wonder how much competition these lots will give to the Metro ...

Re: Orange Line (35W BRT) & Lake St Transit Access Project

Seems that the 6 via Xerxes is about 39 mins midday. 515 from Southdale to 35W is 7 mins and Orange Line from 66th to 7th would probably be 12-15 minutes, so even if the wait is 15 minutes, 515+Orange is faster.

Re: Gold Line BRT (Gateway Corridor)

AFAIK, there hasn't been any official mention of a Gold Line extension to Minneapolis, but it seems like it would be logical as it would add only about 15-20 minutes to the run time. Considering that MnDOT wants to do MnPass on 94 and the Arterial BRT investments on 7th and 8th, there's little to no...

Re: Bottineau LRT (Blue Line Extension)

The corridor is owned by the railroad. The railroad would have to allow the Met Council to build within that corridor. They wouldn't want to for a number of reasons, mainly loss of space for future expansion or liability/insurance costs if an accident were to occur.
