E Line Project

E Line Draft Corridor Plan

What is the E Line?

The METRO E Line is a planned bus rapid transit (BRT) line that will provide faster and more reliable transit service in the Route 6 corridor along University Avenue/4th Street, Hennepin Avenue, and France Avenue from the University of Minnesota to Southdale.

BRT is a package of transit enhancements that adds up to a faster trip and an improved experience on Metro Transit’s busiest bus routes. Watch a video about BRT service. 


What’s in the Draft Corridor Plan? 

  • BRT station facilities and service characteristics

  • E Line routing 

  • Planned station locations: intersections planned for stations and planned locations of platforms within each intersection. Once approved, this plan will set the locations for stations moving forward. 

  • More information on BRT station facilities and service characteristics


What are the next steps? 

View the Corridor Plan or sign up for E Line updates to receive project  news and notifications of future opportunities to provide input. 

Metro Transit will develop a Recommended Corridor Plan based on feedback we received, and ask for public feedback again later this winter. We will seek Metropolitan Council approval of a Final Corridor Plan in early 2022. Project engineering will begin after approval of the final plan. Construction is planned to start in 2024.
