Transit

A-Line extension

Ramsey County and the Saint Paul Area Chamber of Commerce are actively working with Metro Transit to explore the feasibility of extending the A-Line bus rapid transit to the Rice Creek Commons site.

The A-Line is under construction and is expected to be operational in 2016. The line will connect the Twin Cities’ two light rail lines, running from the 46th Street Station on the Blue Line in Minneapolis along Ford Parkway and Snelling Avenue to Rosedale Mall.

Extending the line to Rice Creek Commons would add approximately 10 stations to the line and provide transit opportunities for thousands of residents, students and businesses. The extension would connect the University of Northwestern and Bethel University, as well as major employers, including Land O’Lakes and Boston Scientific, to the broader public transportation system.
