A Line BRT route

This year, Metro Transit will begin construction on a new type of bus service in the area.  “Arterial BRT” is a type of bus transit that includes a variety of enhancements to improve transit speed and experience.  Components will include more frequent service, stations with more amenities, and unique buses.

The region’s first “arterial BRT” service will run from the 46th Street LRT station to Rosedale Mall along 46th Street and Snelling Avenue.  The A-Line Route will provide a convenient connection between the Blue and Green LRT lines without having to go downtown.  In Longfellow, the route will include stops at 46th Street station, Minnehaha/46th St, and 46th St/46th Ave.  The project is scheduled to open in 2015.
