Sambatek currently provides expertise in Civil Engineering and Surveying for the groundbreaking Gold Line bus service. This service stands out with unique features, offering all-day, seven-day operations that eliminate the need for rigid schedules. To ensure a faster and more efficient ride, passengers can pre-pay, board seamlessly on raised platforms, experience fewer stops through dedicated bus-only lanes, and enjoy buses that can communicate with traffic signals for optimized travel. Stations are equipped with enhanced amenities, including NexTrip signs, maps, heat, lighting, bike racks, and advanced security measures for a comfortable waiting experience. Specialized buses with wider aisles, additional doors, and folding seats accommodate diverse passenger needs. The Gold Line, Minnesota’s inaugural bus rapid transit (BRT) line, currently connects St. Paul to Woodbury with a 10-mile route featuring bus-only lanes along Interstate 94, ensuring fast, frequent service in both directions, seven days a week, with 16 stations offering improved features throughout Downtown St. Paul, St. Paul East Side, neighborhoods, Maplewood, Landfall/Oakdale, Oakdale, and Woodbury.
