MnDOT's Role in Metro Area Transit
MnDOT contributes to transitways by providing transit advantages on state highways. Transit advantages facilitate moving more people faster along existing highways by bypassing peak-hour congestion. MnDOT also assists the Metropolitan Council and county transit authorities in planning, designing, financing and constructing light rail and commuter rail lines.
For information on MnDOT’s role in all of Minnesota, visit Office of Transit and Passenger Rail Office.
Transit connects people to jobs, family, schools, shopping, health care centers, sports and cultural events. Transit is an alternative to driving that can reduce congestion, fuel consumption, and greenhouse emissions.
