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: Street, Road and Highway Projects

Does the river view corridor plan also play into this?

Re: U.S. Bank Stadium

Stadium is shut-down for everything, but the Vikings for the rest of the year. Does anyone know when they'll be done with the repairs? I wouldn't be surprised is ASM Global goes under. Managing a lot of empty stadiums right now. https://www.startribune.com/coronavirus-has-shut-down-u-s-bank-stadium...

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...

Re: Rush Line Corridor BRT

This design does fee closer to the “light rail on wheels” that is often discussed with BRT but it is the other segments that concern me with this line. A 40+ min travel time from WBL to St Paul is just too long. Eventually we will have to figure out how to make this line and green line faster to att...

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

What are you working from home folks doing with transit passes? I’m debating finally canceling mine. It is only an option to start or stop about a month in advance. I have until May 10 to cancel for June. But then when I want to restart, I’d have to re-enroll by the 10th the month preceding. Will tr...

Re: Work from home and road congestion

Like most of you, I enjoy my docking station with dual large screens and in person collaboration. I won’t miss the 40 min bus ride. I start WFH on Monday until TBD. I imagine at first I’ll be more productive.

Re: Work from home and road congestion

It’s also spring break season.

I expect to see bus ridership take a big dip this year. Hope it doesn’t hurt any future plans.

Re: Roseville / Rosedale - General Topics

I think the biggest challenge Kowalski's will face at this site is accessibility.

Is something going into the empty parking lot space on Washington? If that was all patio and green space, it would be a huge improvement.

That looks like a giant new parking ramp next to the AMC (over the transit station?). Has anyone found the full plans as presented? I’m assuming this is phased.

Re: Highway Transitway Corridor Study

My thoughts: I'm kinda surprised this $300,000 study is being funded entirely by Washington County. I'm not surprised Hennepin isn't involved, but you'd think Ramsey County would be an equal partner with Washington...just look at the map. With this being planned from a suburban mentality, it's kind...
