Due to increased parking demand from mall shoppers, the Rosedale Park & Ride lot will close permanently at the end of bus service on Nov. 21.
Plan now to park at either of these nearby Park & Ride lots:
I-35W & Co. Rd. C Park & Ride – east of Cleveland Ave., north of Co. Rd. C
This is your best option. There are hundreds of spaces, plus covered parking protects your car from the elements (no scraping!). Most Route 260 express trips that normally serve Rosedale will serve the ramp – plus there’s lots of service on Route 264.
Grace Church Park & Ride – east of Hamline Ave. south of Co. Rd. B2
Current Route 260 trips to and from the Roseville Skating Center will instead offer direct morning service between Grace Church and downtown Minneapolis. Afternoon Route 260 trips from downtown Minneapolis to Grace Church will also serve I-35W & Co. Rd. C Park & Ride. Route 272 buses to the U of M will serve Grace Church rather than Rosedale.
Service changes are coming in December!
Watch for more details in the December Connect about new or expanded service from Roseville and Little Canada effective Dec. 8:
• Added Route 261 service will replace Route 260 service from Roseville Skating Center and Grace Church Park & Rides
• New Route 263 express service to downtown Minneapolis from the new Hwy. 36 & Rice Street Park & Ride (opening in December)
• Added Route 264 trips will replace Route 260 from Rosedale, I-35W & Co. Rd. C Park & Ride and downtown Minneapolis
• Route 272 service to Grace Church Park & Ride, instead of Rosedale
Details will be available in the December edition of Connect, available on buses starting Nov. 23.
