The METRO E Line is a planned Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) line that will provide faster and more reliable transit service in the Route 6 corridor along University Avenue/4th Street, Hennepin Avenue, and France Avenue from the University of Minnesota to Southdale.
To keep moving, BRT buses “ask” traffic signals for early or extended green lights.
Bus lanes provide faster, more reliable BRT service by travelling in a dedicated lane unaffected by other traffic.
Where BRT buses run in general traffic, stations are built on curb bumpouts to improve ride quality and reduced delayed caused by merging back into general traffic.
Curb extensions also improve pedestrian safety by reducing crossing distance and increasing the visibility of pedestrians waiting to cross the street.
