Community invited to open house on West Broadway transit improvements

MINNEAPOLIS – Residents are invited to learn more about a continuing study of transit improvements that could be made along the West Broadway Avenue corridor at an open house on Tuesday, Nov. 3.

The open house will run from 6-8 p.m. at the Capri Theater, 2027 West Broadway Ave., Minneapolis.

Metro Transit and partnering organizations will provide an update on the West Broadway Transit Study that began earlier this year and invite feedback from the community. A video about transit options for the West Broadway Avenue corridor will also be premiered at the event. The video was created by Bully Creative Shop and Juxtaposition Arts.

The West Broadway Transit Study was initiated to look at streeetcar and arterial bus rapid transit (BRT) possibilities along West Broadway Avenue between Penn Avenue and downtown Minneapolis (map). The study is also considering potential connections to the METRO Blue Line Extension and transit-oriented development potential.

Informed by study results and community feedback, residents and city leaders will recommend preferred transit improvements to the Metropolitan Council this fall. The Council is expected to vote on the recommended improvements by the end of the year.  

Metro Transit is leading the West Broadway Transit Study with support from Hennepin County and the City of Minneapolis. More information is available at
