St. Paul East Side Transit Service Existing Service Report

St. Paul Highland Park Transit Service Study

In anticipation of the Ford Site redevelopment in Highland Park, the City of St. Paul, Ramsey County Regional Rail Authority (RCRAA) and Metro Transit are reviewing current transit service in the Highland Park area. The Metro Transit Highland Park Transit Service Study will evaluate the existing transit service in a study area that is bounded by West 7th Street, Randolph Avenue and the Mississippi River. The study provides an analysis of Highland Park's Transit Market Area, demographics, bus routes, service levels bus stop level ridership and public facilities.

The purpose of this report is to review existing transit service performance and to consider service changes in the greater Highland Park neighborhood, and the Ford Site specifically. These changes could be included in the Metro Transit Service Improvement Plan that is expected to be updated in 2020. Other transit service changes in the Highland Park area may be part of a connecting bus service plan for the Riverview Corridor Project.
