Beyond the shelters built through the Ladders of Opportunity program, another 80 will be constructed throughout the region. Metro Transit is designing a new shelter with a smaller footprint to be able to fit on sidewalks where there’s limited right of way, The agency will also replace 75 to 100 aging advertising shelters in Minneapolis. About 75 existing shelters will be upgraded with light and heat.
North Minneapolis is considered an area of focus for the Ladders of Opportunity program.
