New Work to Develop Bus Rapid Transit Line

Environmental analysis phase begins

The Rush Line Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) Project environmental analysis phase of work has begun. This phase will identify potential impacts of Rush Line BRT and outline ways to ease or avoid those impacts. The environmental analysis phase will also include preliminary design of the route and stations. This work will answer the following questions with input from community members like you:

  • Where should stations be placed to best serve transit users and the surrounding neighborhood?
  • How do we preserve cultural and historic resources in the project area? 
  • How do we make sure that all communities along the route benefit from this investment?
  • How will BRT operate alongside people walking, rolling, biking and driving?
  • What kind of development and pedestrian, bicycle, and transit connections do we want to see at and near stations? 

Policy Advisory Committee to meet 

The first Policy Advisory Committee meeting for the environmental analysis phase will be held on Thursday, March 29 beginning at 3 p.m. at the Environmental Health office in Maplewood. The committee includes elected and appointed officials and business and nonprofit representatives along the Rush Line BRT route. This committee will make recommendations on project decisions to the Ramsey County Regional Railroad Authority

The committee’s bimonthly meetings are open to the public and include a public comment period. Review the meeting agenda at
