What is the METRO D Line?

The METRO D Line is an 18-mile line that connects neighborhoods and destinations in Brooklyn Center, Minneapolis, Richfield, and Bloomington. Bus rapid transit brings better amenities, faster service, and a more comfortable ride.

The D Line, an upgrade to Route 5, is part of a growing network of bus rapid transit (BRT) lines that deliver a faster trip and an improved transit experience. Buses operate frequently across most of the day, with faster service than most local buses and enhanced stations.

On the D Line, you pay your fare before you get on so you can board through any door, and buses keep moving more of the time. From Brooklyn Center through downtown Minneapolis to Mall of America, we’ll keep you on the move!

D Line stations feature amenities like NexTrip real-time departure information signs, push-button heaters, security cameras, emergency phones, and trash and recycling bins.
