METRO Orange Line

Metro Transit will be leading construction on the METRO Orange Line - a 17-mile planned highway Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) line that will connect Minneapolis, Richfield, Bloomington and Burnsville along I-35W.

This route will upgrade and replace the existing local Route 535 with enhanced services and amenities, and new station features will benefit other transit riders along the I-35W corridor.

The project includes:

  • Street improvements
  • Upgraded transit stations
  • Park & Ride facilities
  • Improved bus routes
