Join Us for a Ride-Along on the Future G Line

Streets.mn is proud to present a ride-along with Lesley Kandaras, General Manager at Metro Transit, on Saturday, April 27.

As part of the Ride with Lesley initiative, we will be traveling the length of the future G Line, a planned arterial bus rapid transit (BRT) line. The G Line will provide faster transit through the Route 62 and Route 68 corridors, from Little Canada to downtown St. Paul to the Dakota County Northern Service Center. This route travels along Rice Street and Robert Street.

The G Line is in its engineering phase, with construction expected to occur between 2026 and 2028.

Arrival and Schedule

We will meet at Union Depot at 9:45 a.m. to gather as a group. Feel free to grab a coffee at Lost Fox a block to the north before joining the group at the Head House.
Then, at 10 a.m., we will meet Lesley at the Minnesota Street & 4th Street stop.

We expect to return to Union Depot at 1 p.m. If you feel so inclined, a few of us will be stopping at Station 81 for a beverage or light snacks. Lowertown Bike Shop will also be open and serving baked goods and coffee drinks.
