Join us Friday night for the Red Line Ride!

A few weeks ago, Bill Lindeke, Mike Hicks, and myself toured the Red Line. I’ve taken it a few times before for errands, but never to just explore. It’s an unique mode of transit here in the Twin Cities that tries to be LRT on rails and…well, determine for yourself how well it does this Friday night!

Enjoy level boarding that makes the bus creep into stations! Watch the bus go from station to station on the shoulder!* See suburbia! Enjoy streets.mn conversation!

And, if nothing else, enjoy a legitimately decent view of the Minnesota River while crossing the Highway 77 bridge over it.

Plus, with a trip to Wild Bill’s at the end, we’ll make sure there’s some fun in it all.

So come out this Friday night, September 8, for a Red Line ride. We’ll start at Mall of America Transit Station at 6:30 PM.

*shoulder running not guaranteed.

    Questions I have for myself and anyone else who can join us:

    1) what is the real potential of suburban transit?
    2) what, if anything, could be done to improve the red line?
    3) should we build anything else like this in the Twin Cities?
    4) are buses good?

    Buses may or may not be good, but they are inevitable.
