June West Broadway Transit Study Update

The study is about halfway finished and recently passed a major milestone. Policy makers from Metropolitan Council, Hennepin County, and the Cities of Minneapolis, Robbinsdale, and Golden Valley, who convene as the Policy Advisory Committee and primary decision-decision makers for the Study, selected two transit alternatives for more detailed analysis to be completed over the summer. 

The two alternatives selected are streetcar from downtown Minneapolis to North Memorial Hospital, and arterial BRT from downtown Minneapolis to the Robbinsdale Transit Station. The PAC's decision was informed by a recommendation from the study's Technical Advisory Committee composed of City, County, and Metro Transit staff, as well as community members on the study's Community Advisory Committee, and input from attendees at last month's West Broadway Transit Study open house at North Community YMCA. 

Keep your eye out for West Broadway Transit Study staff at bus stops and events in your neighborhood! They will be at various locations along West Broadway with plenty of project information throughout the summer.
