Mall of America Transit Center renovations
Renovations to the Mall of America Transit Center will begin in 2018. Work will affect routes 5, 54, 415, 444, 515, 538, 539, 540, 542 and the METRO Red Line. Work will continue through the end of 2018. Upon completion, the new mall transit center will provide transit customers with a direct connection to the mall’s east entrance. Also, the renovation will provide:
- increased lighting
- new amenities
- a family restroom
- improved bus site access
Safety is a major factor in the redesign, as buses will no longer cross the light-rail tracks, something that will provide for improved safety for bus customers.
