In an effort to meet the goals defined by the Metropolitan Council’s 2030 Transportation Policy Plan, the City of Minneapolis has initiated a year-long plan to examine transit enhancements along the 9.2-mile corridor stretching from 46th Street up Nicollet Avenue to the Columbia Heights Transit Center via Central Avenue. The Nicollet-Central Transit Alternatives Project will identify a preferred transit enhancement for the corridor, which could include street cars or enhanced bus services. As part of this process, the City is holding a series of open houses to solicit feedback from the community.

There are three opportunities to share your thoughts about the project:


Wednesday, Sept. 26, 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Minneapolis Central Library, 300 Nicollet Mall.


Wednesday, Sept 26, 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.

5th Precinct Police Station, 3101 Nicollet Ave. S.


Thursday, Sept. 27, 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.

Eastside Food Co-op, 2551 Central Ave. NE
