What is the METRO  F  Line? 

The METRO F Line is a planned bus rapid transit (BRT) line that will provide faster and more reliable transit service in the Route 10 corridor from downtown Minneapolis to Northtown Transit Center along Central Avenue, 53rd Avenue, and University Avenue. The F Line will be the sixth line within the Twin Cities region’s BRT system. 

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. Learn more at metrotransit.org/brt or watch a short video.

Project schedule

2022-2023: Corridor plan development

The Metropolitan Council adopted the Central Avenue corridor (developed as part of Network Next) as the F Line in March 2021. The planning phase will conclude with the adoption and approval of the final F Line Corridor Plan by the Metropolitan Council, expected in spring 2023. The approved F Line Corridor Plan will finalize station locations and key station components to inform the engineering phase.  

2023-2024: Design of stations and other improvements

Following Metropolitan Council approval, station engineering will begin in 2023 and continue into fall 2024. Specific details such as the precise placement of shelters and other amenities within station platforms will be determined in this phase of the project. 

2025-2026: Construction

The F Line is targeted to begin construction in 2025. Twenty-five new stations are anticipated to be built as part of the F Line project. The F Line will use existing facilities at Northtown Transit Center and along Nicollet Mall. 

2026: F Line service begins
