Metro Transit - Twin Cities Light Rail

Recommended Posts

The ride very smoothly and quiet(ly). But for six million American, you think they would have digital speedometers. Or at least be completly built when delivered! Bombardier spent almost 3 years camped out at the O&M (ops & maint) "modifying" them. 27 of them!!

Nice pics. Dumb question? Is the light rail station/extension bulit yet for MLB's Twin new ballpark "Target Field?"

 

Built, open along with Northstar Commuter Rail 11/16/2009. The other in-fill station (American Blvd. I think) opened 12/12/2009.

Hi Brooklyn

Yes, open and waiting for disaster! The new station, Target Field, Northstar Line, I-394 entrance, a heavily used bus terminal (5th Street Garage) and a municipal parking garage all share the same intersection! The traffic light can be 3 minutes long during peak hours. Folks here get antsy with the right turn on red. Also, that intersection is used as a pull-in route to our largest and busiest garage (depot). Not to mention that Target Field sits between the Target Center (Timberwolves), a trash burning facility, a bus garage and a homeless shelter. :eek:
