About Us

A well-informed and engaged public strengthens the project and helps create a more useful transit system for all. The Metropolitan Council, Metro Transit, and the project’s local funding partner, Ramsey County, understand the need to engage corridor stakeholders in the development of project details and in fostering broad support for the project as a necessary investment to improve access and mobility to employment, educational and economic opportunities within the corridor and beyond.

Purple Line project staff will seek to engage corridor residents, businesses, organizations, and transit customers in the project planning process to solicit their input and address their needs and concerns. Concerted effort will also be given to communities that have been traditionally underrepresented in transit planning processes: people of color, low-income communities, people with limited English proficiency (LEP), people with disabilities, and other historically marginalized groups.
