D Line Station Plan

METRO D Line route and stations


Preliminary station designs


The METRO D Line will build 40 enhanced stations along an 18-mile corridor between the Brooklyn Center Transit Center and Mall of America. Like the A Line and C Line, stations will include shelters with light and on-demand heat, real-time signs and ticket machines, among other features. The Metropolitan Council approved the D Line's station plan in 2018, confirming station locations. During the design phase, nearby residents, business owners and property owners are invited to offer additional thoughts on how the station can best fit into the surrounding area. 

Preliminary station designs can be viewed on an Interactive Map.

If you need this map in a more accessible format or language assistance, please contact project staff by email ( or by phone (612-349-7390).


Metro Transit completed a Final D Line Station Plan to identify locations for enhanced D Line stations before project engineering began. The Metropolitan Council approved this plan on July 25, 2018. The Final Station Plan establishes two core components: the station intersection and the location of platforms within that intersection and incorporated feedback from the Draft Station Plan (Feb. 2018) and Recommended Station Plan (May 2018).
