Metro Transit is partnering with the cities of St. Paul and Minneapolis, as well as Ramsey and Hennepin counties, to improve the speed and reliability of service on Route 3. We would like your feedback on these proposed changes, including:  
  • Consolidating bus stops for up to quarter-mile spacing  
  • Relocating select stops past a signalized intersection to reduce delays  
  • Expanding the no-parking zone to ensure buses can fully pull to the curb at the bus stop  
  • Adjusting the route and schedule, including:  
    • Replacing the branch that serves Elm and Kasota with a different route   
    • Shifting the route in downtown Minneapolis from 3rd and 4th streets to Washington Avenue  
    • Extending Route 3 to serve the North Loop  
  • Installing concrete pads to improve accessibility for customers  
  • Installing new shelters at qualifying bus stops  
While Route 3 is the primary focus of our project, customers on other routes, such as Route 14 in the North Loop or Route 62 along Rice Street, could also be affected by these changes.  
 
Feedback from this 7-minute survey will help inform our final recommendations, with changes being implemented later this summer.
