Twin Cities considering BRT

Posted on June 3, 2002

Both a second light rail line and bus rapid transit are being considered in the Twin Cities. If built, the cities' second light rail line, linking downtown St. Paul, the University of Minnesota and downtown Minneapolis, would cost $840 million to build in 2008 dollars, reported the Pioneer Press. The line would carry 38,000 people daily in 2020. BRT or a dedicated busway in that same corridor would cost $241 million to build. The Central Corridor Coordinating Committee will draft an early recommendation June 13 on the option it believes will best accommodate travel demand on the line. The public will also have input during a community forum on June 6. The committee will make a final recommendation this fall.
