C Line (Penn Avenue rapid bus service)

The C Line is a new kind of bus service for the Twin Cities’ busiest urban streets. Rapid bus service is a package of transit enhancements that adds up to a faster trip and an improved experience.
• Faster service
• Train-like features
• Enhanced stations
• Enhanced security
• Larger & specialized vehicles

> The C Line Fact Sheet has details on these features

Final C Line Station Plan Approved

The final C Line Station Plan was approved by the Metropolitan Council on April 27, 2016. The plan finalizes the station locations and will serve to guide detailed design and engineering work that begins in 2016.
Stakeholders were able to comment on the C Line Station Plan throughout its development. You can read more about public outreach and engagement throughout the Planning Phase in the Project Library

Project Timeline (Updated April 2016)

Construction was originally targeted for 2017, pending full project funding. As of April 2016, the timeline for the C Line has been adjusted to construction occurring instead in 2018. Full funding for the project has not yet been identified, and a 2018 construction schedule offers better opportunities to coordinate C Line construction with other road projects on Brooklyn Boulevard and Penn Avenue. Metro Transit is working to advance project engineering throughout 2016-2017 and begin construction in 2018.
