METRO Gold Line BRT is a proposed bus rapid transit line that would run next to Interstate 94 for about 9 miles in an exclusive lane on or next to Hudson Road and 4th Street, down Helmo Ave in Oakdale to Bielenberg Dr in Woodbury between the Union Depot in downtown Saint Paul and the Woodbury Theater Park and Ride in Washington County. The exclusive bus lanes would not be added to I-94 but would be part of a separate bus-only system.
All-day transit service would stop at multiple stations and include connections to the growing regional transit system. The system will provide a focal point for new economic development opportunities as the region grows.
This would be Minnesota’s first BRT line in an exclusive lane. Coalition and advocacy work is led by the Gold Line Partners – comprised of local elected officials, business and community leaders.
