Downtown St. Paul Transit Improvements

In early 2015, new customer waiting shelters were put into use at some of downtown St. Paul's busiest boarding locations. New shelters were placed at:

> The corner of 5th and Minnesota streets, just east of the METRO Green Line's Central Station (Stop 11837); 

> On Cedar Street between 5th and 6th streets, outside the Pioneer Press building and just west of Central Station (Stop 50211);

> In the northeast corner of 6th and Cedar streets (Stop 11861). 

The shelters were custom designed and incorporate public art, lighting and landscaping. Security features and real-time arrival signs are to be completed in 2015.

Funding for the improvements came from a $3.2 million federal Bus Livability grant, which was also used to help build a stairway-elevator tower between the street level and the St. Paul skyway. 

Future improvements are planned for the customer waiting area at 6th and Minnesota streets.
