The METRO Gold Line will have 10 new stations:

  • > Five stations in St. Paul
  • > One station in Maplewood
  • > Two stations in Oakdale
  • > Two stations in Woodbury

Stations may contain a variety of amenities, including: a platform with shelter, bike parking, real-time bus schedule information (NexTrip displays), on-demand heat, ticket machines, fare card validators, trash and recycling bins, seating, emergency telephones, security cameras, a station marker, on-demand annunciators and energy-efficient LED lighting.  All stations will be ADA accessible and include higher curbs for easier boarding.  

There will also be a textured warning strip on 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.

Improvements will also be made at seven existing bus stop locations in downtown St. Paul. These enhanced stops will have nearly all the same customer amenities found at the new stations, except for higher curbs.

Customers will be able to transfer to and from the METRO Gold Line in downtown St. Paul for connections to the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport, Mall of America, Target Field and the University of Minnesota. The METRO Gold Line route map shows the approximate locations of the proposed stations.

Station Design

Detailed station design will begin when the Metropolitan Council hires an engineering firm to advance the design of the project, which is anticipated to be in the fall of 2017. Station design is anticipated to be finalized during the latter part of the Engineering phase in early 2021.

Station-area Planning

In spring 2017, Washington County is conducting planning work around station-areas, in order to better coordinate planning and policy development along the entire Corridor. This work strives to enhance opportunities for economic development and improve ridership along the METRO Gold Line. More information can be found at Washington County's website.
