What is the METRO B Line?

BRT brings better amenities, faster service and a more comfortable ride.

  • Faster, frequent service
  • Pay before boarding for faster service
  • Neighborhood-scale stations with amenities
  • Enhanced security
  • Larger & specialized vehicles

Lake Street improvements move forward

As Metro Transit is leading development of the B Line, Hennepin County and Minneapolis have partnered to take a deeper look at Lake Street to make broader changes to the corridor alongside the B Line, aimed at reducing crashes on a high-injury street, addressing pedestrian safety needs, and improving transit speed and reliability in the corridor. For more information about proposed Lake Street improvements, visit Hennepin County’s project website.
