METRO Gold Line project
METRO Gold Line bus rapid transit will connect people across the region to job centers, housing options, transit stations and key destinations in the Interstate 94 corridor. The planned 10-mile bus rapid transit line will connect St. Paul, Maplewood, Landfall, Oakdale, and Woodbury generally along I-94.
Gold Line will be Minnesota's first bus rapid transit line that operates primarily within bus-only lanes. These lanes are dedicated only to transit buses, and will be constructed generally north of and near I-94. Gold Line will be built with several 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 St. Paul, Oakdale, and Woodbury
- Real-time arrival and departure information
- Heated shelters, lighting, and security features
The Gold Line Fact Sheet has more information on these features.
Gold Line is expected to begin service in 2025.
Major construction seasons will be spring through fall/winter 2023 and spring through fall/winter 2024. Gold Line will be in operation in 2025.
