Map Monday: Metro Transit’s (Draft) “Increased Revenue Scenario”

This map comes from the Met Council’s Transportation Policy Plan draft which is out for public comment right now.


It depicts what the plans for what would happen if somehow the region received more money (most likely through a local sales tax).

Here’s the description from the draft document, transit chapter:

In order to complete the region’s vision of a transitway system and do it on an accelerated timeline, the region will need additional funding for transitways. Increased funding will allow the region to:

  • Accelerate the build-out of the transitways included in the Current Revenue Scenario
  • Afford the transitways in CTIB’s Transit Investment Framework beyond the Phase I

    Program of Projects

  • Afford additional transitways not in CTIB’s Transit Investment Framework that are under

    study or needing to be studied for mode and alignment by other partners

  • Implement the complete system of 12 arterial BRT projects

Read through the whole plan here, and feel free to comment.
