The Route 614 operates between Minnetonka Heights and Ridgedale shopping center, traveling along Highway 101, Minnetonka Boulevard and Plymouth Boulevard. Service on Route 614 began in August 2013 with a goal of 100 rides per weekday. Since 2013, the route has averaged under 50 rides per weekday. The route is operating under the regional’s minimum performance standard, despite efforts to improve ridership, and is being considered for elimination. If Route 614 service is eliminated, Transit Link service will be available.
