West Broadway Transit Study
Metro Transit, in partnership with Hennepin County and the City of Minneapolis, has initiated a transit study to identify possible transit improvements along West Broadway. The modes to be evaluated in the study include Street Car and bus network enhancements including Arterial Bus Rapid Transit (Arterial BRT).
The West Broadway Transit Study will conduct a collaborative planning process to identify and evaluate potential transit improvements along Washington Avenue and West Broadway Avenue in north Minneapolis and Robbinsdale, including evaluation of potential connections to the planned METRO Blue Line Extension (Bottineau LRT). The study will also evaluate the corridor’s market potential for transit-oriented development (TOD). The intended outcome of the study is a recommended locally preferred alternative (LPA) for transit service improvements in the corridor.
Study technical work concluded in early 2016. In February 2017 the study’s Policy Advisory Committee adopted final study recommendations.

The West Broadway Transit Study will move through four stages:
- Identifying transportation problems in the corridor and identifying study goals
- Defining alternatives at a conceptual level
- Evaluating alternatives results and methodology
- Delivering a final transit study report to the Policy Advisory Committee to serve as a key resource in a potential recommendation on a locally preferred alternative (LPA) for transit service improvements in the corridor.
