METRO Gold Line - Stations and Design

The Gold Line will travel approximately nine miles through St. Paul, Maplewood, Landfall, Oakdale and Woodbury.

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

The Gold Line will have 10 new stations:

  • St. Paul: Mounds Boulevard, Earl Street, Etna Street, White Bear Avenue, Sun Ray
  • Maplewood: Maplewood / 3M Headquarters
  • Oakdale: Greenway Avenue (also serving the City of Landfall), Helmo Avenue
  • Woodbury: Tamarack, Woodbury Theater

New stations will have a variety of amenities. Amenities include a heated shelter, bike parking, real-time bus arrival information, trash and recycling bins, emergency telephones, a station market and an information kiosk. Energy-efficient LED lighting and safety features, including an emergency telephone and security cameras, will be used at each station. Similar to light-rail, customers will purchase their tickets at the platform before they board the bus.

All stations will be ADA accessible and include higher curbs for easier boarding. There will also be a textured warning strip at the edge of the platform for customer safety. In some locations, safe crosswalks and new sidewalks will be added to better connect the stations to the surrounding neighborhoods. 

The Gold Line will also serve enhanced station stops in downtown St. Paul and stop at Union Depot. These stops will have similar features to those at new stations, but will be constructed at existing bus stops. Customers will be able to transfer to the METRO Green Line, local and express bus service, and future planned transitways in downtown. 

The Metropolitan Council is under contract with an engineering services consultant to help the Gold Line Project advance design of stations. Resolution of specific design issues will occur during the Gold Line's Project Development phase in 2018 and 2019. Further design and more information will be available online as concepts are developed.

Station Area Planning

Washington County is conducting station area planning around proposed Gold Line stations within the corridor. This work will allow coordination of planning, land uses, and policy development along the line. Planning around the Gold Line now will allow cities and project partners to identify new opportunities for economic development, ridership growth, and creation of Transit-Oriented Development (TOD) sites near station areas. Station area planning work will continue throughout 2018 and include opportunities for public engagement and comment on station area proposals. More information can be found at the Gateway Corridor Commisson's website.
