Twin Cities Metro Area - Team Transit


bus on the shoulder of a road

Our goal is to move more people through congested highways by:

  • Investing in highway transit improvements that will support and encourage transit use in congested highways
  • Interacting with local agencies involved in transit for a seamless system of information sharing and project coordination
  • Preserving more than 300 miles of bus shoulders in the Twin Cities Metro Area
  • Informing other state DOTs on the cost-effective transit advantages of bus shoulder use
