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 nine-mile dedicated Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) line will connect St. 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 on the north side of Interstate 94. The Gold Line will be built with several amenities 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 enters Project Development

The Federal Transit Administration (FTA) allowed the Gold Line to enter the Project Development phase of the federal New Starts program, which is the first step to securing federal funding. This approval allows the project to advance design and engineering, environmental work, and community outreach over the next two years.
