F Line Corridor Plan
What is the F Line?
The METRO F Line is a planned bus rapid transit line that will provide faster and more reliable transit service in the Route 10 corridor from downtown Minneapolis to Northtown Transit Center along Nicollet Mall, Central Avenue, 53rd Avenue, and University Avenue.
Bus rapid transit is a package of transit enhancements that adds up to a faster trip and an improved experience on Metro Transit’s busiest bus routes. Learn more at metrotransit.org/brt or watch a short video.
What is in the Corridor Plan?
The purpose of the F Line Corridor Plan is to identify the locations of stations and platforms and provide policy direction to Metro Transit to begin detailed design for the F Line bus rapid transit project.
The F Line Corridor Plan is the process and product Metro Transit uses to facilitate early agency coordination and public engagement on the locations of F Line stations and platforms prior to the engineering phase of the F Line project.
The approved Corridor plan includes:
- Final station locations, indicating the corner of the intersection where each platform will be placed
- Concept bus service plan
- Priorities for potential bus priority treatment along the corridor
- Project history and planning process to date
Approval of the plan allows the project to move into the engineering phase, where specific details including the precise location of shelters and other amenities within station areas will be determined.
Corridor Plan process
The contents of the Corridor Plan were developed by Metro Transit staff throughout 2022 and into 2023 with inputs and feedback received from the Technical Advisory Committee consisting of staff from agency partners and through ongoing community outreach and engagement activities.
Throughout 2022 and 2023, we engaged the public and asked for feedback on the Draft and Recommended versions of the Corridor Plan. Metro Transit received more than 850 comments during two comment periods in the fall and spring.
Additional information can be found on the Public Engagement page and the F Line Planning Stages section of the Final Corridor Plan.
