Construction of the "C" Line BRT along Penn Ave. to begin in 2016

Construction of the $32 million C Line along Penn Ave N will begin in 2016. This Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) line will join two other arterial BRT lines that will operate in St. Paul. The Penn Ave. project purpose is to enhance the economic, livability and mobility along Penn Ave. with the goal to improve the quality of life for Northside residents.

The Penn Ave. line will run from downtown Minneapolis to Brooklyn Center and would provide connections to the Green and Blue Lines thus allowing North Minneapolis residents connections to major Twin Cities attractions.

The West Broadway Alternatives Analysis which runs through 2015 is looking at West Broadway as a potential route for an Arterial BRT route. How do you envision transit improvements along West Broadway in the future?
