METRO Gold Line
Smith & 5th Street
Downtown St. Paul stations are part of the METRO Gold Line project. Design is currently underway for these stations, which are planned for construction in 2022-2023. These shared stations will serve both the B Line and Gold Line. For additional detail regarding the development of these stations, see the Gold Line website at: metrotransit.org/gold-line-design-and-engineering.
Because the Smith Avenue Transit Center will serve as the western terminus of the Gold Line, the Gold Line project does not include construction of a westbound platform at the Smith Avenue & 5th Street location. The B Line will construct a corresponding westbound platform with full BRT station amenities. This platform is recommended to be located at the existing Route 21 stop on Smith Avenue at Kellogg, where B Line customers will use an existing indoor (heated and lighted) waiting area instead of a standalone shelter.
