The Central Corridor line will pass through a campus that attracts 80,000 people on a typical day. Washington Avenue is the hub for University residence halls, Coffman Memorial Union, the graduate and professional schools, the Institute of Technology, the Academic Health Center, the University libraries, and dozens of heavily used class rooms. Vital research also takes place along the corridor, with over 80 University labs in nearby 17 buildings.
The Central Corridor line will include three stations that directly serve the Twin Cities campus: the Stadium Village, East Bank, and West Bank stations.
The University of Minnesota is strongly committed to transportation alternatives. A highly effective transit system is essential to the Twin Cities campus.
The University has invested heavily to enhance service and accessibility. In fact, the University of Minnesota–Twin Cities was selected as one of the "Best Workplaces for Commuters" by the Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Department of Transportation.
As the third largest trip generator in the metro area for alternative modes of transportation, the University is committed to establishing, maintaining, and improving a comprehensive transportation system that reduces congestion, eases accessibility, and enhances a friendly University community.
The University will be one of the biggest factors in the successful operation of a Central Corridor LRT line. The line will connect the Twin Cities campus with the two downtowns and the airport and will bring students, faculty, staff, and visitors to campus from all over the metropolitan area. An estimated one fourth of all daily riders on the line will be generated by the University.
The safety of students, staff, faculty, and visitors is enormously important to the University. On Washington Avenue - one of the densest, liveliest pedestrian environments in Minnesota - “rush hour” happens 10 times a day, at the beginning of every class period. Bikes, buses, people on foot, cars, and now trains will need to share this busy space efficiently and carefully.
