Twin Cities Transit Expansion Timeline

The Twin Cities region has been slow to establish transitways compared to peer cities. While there have been a few new transitways since our first major transit project was completed, the region has a long way to go and will likely need major funding changes for more routes to be completed and in a reasonable […]

Towards A Network Of Rapid Buses

This summer, for the first time, I had the opportunity to use the A-Line arterial bus rapid transit (aBRT) on Snelling Avenue. I don’t mean ride the A-Line.

The A Line Works, Let’s Build More

I was out last Friday making a video about people’s experience with the A Line. Now, I knew about the 30% increase in ridership in this corridor since the A Line opened.

The A Line, One Month In

The A Line has been open for about a month now. It’s had a little bit of time to work out minor operational kinks, and get the bus schedule operating smoothly. I live about 5 minutes from an A Line stop, and use it almost daily to get to work, church, and other social events. […]

Arterial Bus Rapid Transit Could Save Us From Ourselves

Hey, what’s this? We’re on 46th Street in South Minneapolis, heading to Minnehaha Park–looks like we’ve got some cones and some metal pipes and a whole bunch of that sidewalk braille along the curb, kind of like at a…train station. That’s no train station–it’s an arterial bus rapid transit station, under construction. What’s arterial bus […]
