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: Rush Line Corridor BRT

Found a packet from August about WBL station area planning. Surprisingly I found it on Nextdoor. https://www.ramseycounty.us/sites/default/files/Projects%20and%20Initiatives/Rush%20Line%20-%20White%20Bear%20Lake%20-%20Working%20Group%20-%20Meeting%203_20180814.pdf I wonder how realistic the Marina T...

Re: Rush Line Corridor BRT

Mariana Triangle is a bigger opportunity for development. Apparently Kowalski’s has mentioned that they’d be open to a new store in a mixed use building. Maybe something like Whole Foods on Snelling & Selby.

Re: Rush Line Corridor BRT

what traffic? The petition is “SAY NO to Park and Ride Bus Hub in Old Downtown White Bear Lake” and doesn’t actually reference Rush Line by name. It’s clearly someone with half info spouting off in fear of the unknown. Signature count is now just under 3k. https://www.change.org/p/mayor-whitebearla...

Re: Rush Line Corridor BRT

Question... is there a spot where I can see data about the planned WBL downtown station? I know they are thinking about a two story ramp at Clark and 2nd/3rd. A friend on Facebook is sharing a petition against it. There are currently about 2500 signers. He said his major concern is the traffic. My i...

Re: Rush Line Corridor BRT

The Maplewood Mall Transit Station was just built. Also the Maplewood Mall area is doing an area plan to create a vision for increased density and city amenities. If anything, the hospital stop should be removed.

Re: Fantasy maps

Oh if this is ONLY regional rail, IMO there are WAY too many stops. Some of these routes seem to have more stops than the actual or planned LRT/BRT routes. Even if it is “fantasy maps” there should be a little reality.

Re: Fantasy maps

It’s a little hard to read on my phone... but I’m wondering why you’re routing seems to miss so many points of interest?

Rosedale area, Maplewood Mall area, Woodbury Lakes, Uptown!!!, the airport!, south minneapolis, the purple loop doesn’t go downtown Minneapolis, etc.

Re: Upper Harbor Terminal

Is “industrial ruins” of today what the “mill district” was before it? Keep this stuff around to add character? Similar to reusing silos.
