The METRO Blue Line Extension Light Rail Transit (LRT) operates northwest from downtown Minneapolis through north Minneapolis, Golden Valley, Robbinsdale, Crystal, and Brooklyn Park, drawing riders northwest of Brooklyn Park. The alignment is primarily at-grade with 12 new stations, in addition to Target Field Station, and approximately 13 miles of double track. The line will interline with the METRO Blue Line and connect Minneapolis and the region’s northwestern communities with existing light rail transit on the METRO Green Line, future light rail transit on the METRO Green Line Extension, bus rapid transit on the METRO Red Line, the Northstar commuter rail line, and local and express bus routes.
