Hennepin/Lyndale Bus Lanes

Why bus lanes?
• Improve the speed and reliability of service for customers

• Cost-effective investment in multimodal transportation, reducing emissions
• With workers returning downtown, now is the time to make transit a more attractive option to avoid gridlock
Proposed Bus Lane Map

Why Hennepin/Lyndale?
• Key transit corridor connecting Uptown and downtown Minneapolis
– About 3,000 riders pass through this corridor every
weekday on Route 4 and Route 6
– METRO E Line will largely replace Route 6 in 2025,
increasing trips by 55%
• Provide advantage for buses during expected delays due to Hennepin Avenue South reconstruction
• Designed in coordination with Hennepin-Dunwoody bikeway and Hennepin Avenue South reconstruction projects
