Gold Line Project

METRO Gold Line BRT Project

The METRO Gold Line will connect people across the region to job centers, housing options, transit stations and key destinations in the I-94 corridor. The planned 10-mile dedicated Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) line will connect Saint Paul, Maplewood, Landfall, Oakdale and Woodbury generally along Interstate 94. 

The Gold Line will be Minnesota's first BRT line that operates primarily within bus-only lanes. These lanes are dedicated only to transit buses, and will be built north of Interstate 94. The Gold Line will be built with several premium features to ensure a comfortable ride and fast service:

  • Frequent, all-day service in both directions
  • Pre-boarding fare payment for faster stops
  • Access to Park & Ride lots in Saint Paul, Oakdale and Woodbury
  • Real-time arrival and departure information
  • Heated shelters, lighting and security features

The Gold Line will travel from St. Paul to Woodbury and have 21 stations.

The Gold Line Fact Sheet has more information on these features.

Gold Line is expected to begin service in 2024.


Design advancement for the Gold Line BRT began in early 2018, reached 15% completion in early 2019 and completed 30% design in March 2020. The Engineering phase begins when enough design work has been completed. Engineering is expected to begin later in 2020 and will take approximately two years to complete.
