More than just proximity to the Blue Line, they didn't carry Interior 3 very far north from the A Line.

But now that I'm looking, 34th Ave north of 46th Street is both near the Blue Line and served by the 46 and could probably get corridor treatment too.

The area around the 38th Street station seems okay to me, in part because 38th doesn't carry as much or as important bus traffic as 46th. Also because north of 38th is the "Interior 2 everywhere" area.

Happy 14th birthday to the Blue Line/Hiawatha Line!

Was anyone else there for the first day? I was lucky enough to get a seat at the front on my first ride.

Last night at the Mpls2040 meeting, fishmanpet pointed out how much Interior 1/2 is planned immediately to the west of Blue Line LRT stations. It seems crazy to have Interior 1/2 designations within three or four blocks of stations such as 38th, 46th, and 50th. Go to and comment if you feel the same way.

Also, 34th Ave between 42nd-46th got overlooked as a bus route, and should be corridor 4, not interior 1. Route 46 runs on this stretch as it transitions between 42nd & 46th, but I guess they missed it. This change, plus filling in the 4400 block of 35th Ave with Corridor 6, would be a big improvement at 46th Street Station. Send your comments by the deadline and copy CM Johnson

Don't tell them that they proposed Corridor 4 for the segment of 50th St between 28th and 34th avenues which has zero transit.
