Re: Public Transit News and Current Happenings

Every time there is a change I hold my breathe hoping for nothing major. Hooray! This looks minimal.

Re: West End / Central Park West Development - St. Louis Park

I always thought they should have gone for a KC Power and Light district plan. Have a central courtyard that could be shared by multiple restaurant patios.

Re: Riverview Corridor Streetcar

Is there a chance this still gets moved to the CP rail spur? Why is that shown on the LPA and labeled as to be studied still?

Re: Public Transit News and Current Happenings

I find it interesting that even with the Hennepin buses rerouted to Nicollet, there doesn't seem to be THAT many busses on the mall. Makes me think that they could have kept them making it a major bus route (like Marq2) and then reduce Hennepin to single lane and left turns only with HUGE sidewalks....

Re: Labeling the Transit System

METRO Riverview listed under Light Rail and color black. I hope they embrace it as Light Rail vs "streetcar" Rush Line should officially get the purple naming already. I agree with the comment about aBRT stop labeling. Yuck! Orange Line downtown stop labeling is gross! Any mock up with the A (north)...

Re: Electric Scooters

Jump looks like they use the same brand as Lime. Which is too bad because I remember many Lime scooters breaking last year. It’s interesting that they are capping city wide at 2K and downtown at 800, with a required 600 in North. All split evenly between the 4 companies. That sounds like a lot to ma...

The NE corner (Marquette Hotel) is getting some sort of raised patio or planter space. It's the area that used to have their monument sign and a few tables/chairs for the hotel bar.
They did this planter a few months ago. It had Christmas trees in it.

Bafflingly easy getting to and from today, if you were wondering.
Using what method? Pre-game tailgating? Stay at a bar after the game? Many additional factors would be nice to know.

Re: A Line - Arterial Rapid Bus

Would they ever use C Line buses on the A line for MN UFC game days? Or maybe normal articulated buses to increase capacity.

Re: Public Transit News and Current Happenings

I can’t find the article, but I read that Tim Walz wants to open one bus line per year for the next 10 years due in part to raising the motor vehicle sales tax. A few of the lines include 169 BRT between Shakopee and Hopkins or Minneapolis, Red Line South extension, Orange Line south extension, Hig...

Re: Arterial Bus Rapid Transit Corridors

If I'm reading this correctly, the Snelling and University intersection could soon be home to Green, A, AND B lines? It's just a question of if this is the end of the B line or if it continues on to St Paul. This intersection and surrounding areas needs some serious upgrades!

Re: Allianz Field and Snelling-Midway Development

A second park and ride would probably be a good idea too. State Fair grounds make sense, but they’re not very convenient from a lot of places. TCF Bank Stadium would work well as a second location. I’ve also not yet heard of any private options. Surly posted about being a pregame option. They had a...

Re: Downtown Minneapolis Office Market

I wonder why they sold. I thought they were still over 50% of building even with the new buildings over by the stadium. Wells Fargo didn't own the building.

At one point there was talk of interlining Rush and Riverview. But I suppose that’s dead now that Rush is BRT and Riverview is streetcar.
