METRO Gold Line

The METRO Gold Line Bus Rapid Transit project will connect people across the region to job centers, housing options, transit stations and key destinations along the I-94 corridor. The project will provide all day, bi-directional BRT service to the cities of St. Paul, Maplewood, Landfall, Oakdale and Woodbury.

METRO Gold Line MapWhen complete, the Gold Line is expected to feature:

  • Frequent, all-day service in both directions
  • Pre-boarding fare payment for faster stops
  • Access to BRT park-and-ride lots in St. Paul, Oakdale and Woodbury
  • Connections to additional regional transit lines
  • Real-time arrival and departure information
  • Heated shelters, lighting and security features

This project involves coordination between many agencies, including the Metropolitan Council, Ramsey and Washington Counties, the various cities along the line, as well as the state and federal government.

The Gold Line is expected to complete the Project Development Phase in early 2020, at which point the project design will be 30 percent complete. The project office will then request the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) to enter the Engineering Phase which will secure federal funding for the project. Based on the project's current timeline, construction is anticipated to start in 2022. More information will be developed as the project progresses through the Project Development Phase and in the Engineering Phase in 2020 and 2021. Gold Line service is expected to open in 2024.
