Longer station spacing than guidelines due to land use and low-ridership segment.

(Fall 2016)
About 500 boardings per weekday
Platform location compared

Southbound and northbound: At existing transit center
Connecting service

Project coordination: Mall of America Transit Center renovation

  • The D Line station will be integrated into the planned Mall of America Transit Center renovation to be completed in 2019.

Other station locations considered: 24th Avenue & Lindau

The 2012 Arterial Transitway Corridor Study (ATCS) included a conceptual 24th Avenue & Lindau station. This station plan does not include a D Line station at 24th Avenue and Lindau.

  • A D Line station at 24th Avenue and Lindau would result in station spacing of about 0.3 and 0.4 mi to neighboring stations. However, the surrounding land uses, longer block lengths, ridership considerations, and station location precedents set elsewhere on the corridor do not justify station spacing closer to half-mile guidelines.
