Coming soon -- a sleek new tram system

The twin cities don't have a subway -- but soon [the sign says "in 2004"], they will have a new tram system. This is the sign at the construction for the Nicollet Mall station. You can click on the photo to see more detail.

MINNEAPOLIS IS GETTING SUBWAY SYSTEMS! (LRT)

People, people, people, Minneapolis is building the Light Rail system (LRT)! It will connect downtown to the Airport, and Bloomington and St.Paul. There will be 17 stops, and each station is designed by a different local architectural firm -- they each have a distinct, unique design!

Plans, are also being made to connect Blaine, Edina, Minnetonka, Hopkins, Chanhassen and Loring Park to the line, making it one of the largest Local Subway/Light Rail lines in the world!

It will be opening for the first 17 stops in the ending of 2003-early 2004. Then, subsequent lines will be added as needed. Also,t he cars are really cool and can hold 68 people COMFORTABLY and they each have bike racks, as, you may well know, this city has more registered bikes than cars!!

All in all, I think, along with 4 million people, that this line will bring minneapolis up to par with all the other "major" cities. Not that we aren't already, cos we are :) But one thing we were lacking was a Light Rail or Subway of some sort.

the best thing: Cars will be running every 7 minutes. Thats 8 minutes less than the Boston T (which runs once every 15 minutes, but 10 during rush hour).

anyways, this will make getting around the metro area SO much easier, and will also increase more tourism to downtown, since there will be, in the beggining, 8 stops in the dowtown area.

It sucks for Saint Paul, since this is pretty much just a Minneapolis thing, as are most cool things that happen in this area. Man, St.Paul always ends up with the scraps.

at any rate, it will affect EVERYONE in the city, and we welcome it with OPEN ARMS!

peace
