Midtown Corridor Alternatives Analysis

Update: February 2014

Study Recommends Rail on Greenway and Enhance Bus on Lake Street

A study of transit alternatives in the Midtown Corridor recommends a combination of rail in the Midtown Greenway and enhanced bus service on Lake Street as the best long-term transit solution for the corridor.                      

The recommendation, known as a Locally Preferred Alternative, was approved on February 12, 2014 by the Policy Advisory Committee (PAC) for the Midtown Corridor Alternatives Analysis.
The group includes community and business representatives as well as elected and appointed officials
from the Metropolitan Council, Hennepin County and City of Minneapolis

The recommended transit improvements will be advanced as funding is available.

Rail would run immediately south of the Midtown Greenway bike trail. The LPA calls for trips to be
operated with single-car trains. Future analysis will identify the vehicle type and double/single-track
