The Metro Transit Campus, in Minneapolis’ North Loop neighborhood, is home to several Metro Transit support facilities. These include the:
Heywood Office and Police Facility

The 24-acre campus is continually evolving to meet the needs of Metro Transit's workforce and the community.
The Metro Transit Office & Police Facility opened in 2019, providing a new home for the Metro Transit Police Department, along with administrative offices, employee common areas and meeting rooms. An addition to the west end of the Heywood Garage is complete, along with improvements to the garage's maintenance area.
New Bus Garage Construction
In May 2020, construction started on Metro Transit's sixth service garage, on vacant property immediately north of the Heywood Garage.
Construction will take approximately two and a half years. During this time, you can expect to see an increase in truck traffic bringing supplies to or removing materials from the site. This year, crews will need to do some utility work that will require road or lane closures of 8th Avenue North, 10th Avenue North and Oak Lake Avenue. Check out our website regularly for information about closures.
If you have questions or concerns, please contact outreach staff Joanna Hubbard-Rivera at Joanna.Hubbard-Rivera@metrotransit.org.
