The Gateway Corridor Commission will host an open house from 5-7 p.m. Thursday, April 5, at Woodbury City Hall.
Within a few months, the Gateway Corridor Commission plans to choose its top option for transit down Interstate 94. And while the commission has already winnowed its choices somewhat—ranking bus rapid transit high on its list and cutting out the option for commuter rail—there’s still time for the public to give input on the remaining options, which include light rail transit and doing nothing. (Plans call for new a transit system between St. Paul and Hudson, WI, with connections to Minneapolis and Eau Claire, WI.) The commission is holding an open house from 5-7 p.m. Thursday, April 5, at Woodbury City Hall to provide information about the different options and hear from the public.

The commission studying transit on the I-94 corridor between St. Paul and Wisconsin has ranked bus rapid transit at the top of its options.
Bus rapid transit currently ranks at the top of the mass transportation options being considered by the Gateway Corridor Commission. RELATED: Bus Rapid Transit Options Top List for the Gateway Corridor The Gateway Corridor Commission posted this video on its Facebook Page to show how bus rapid transit (BRT) functions. The video gives an idea of what Alternative 3, BRT on a dedicated lane, would look like. The other highly ranked option, Alternative 8, would look a little different because it wouldn't have its own lane. Rather, the buses would run on a MnPASS-like lane that would include cars. The video contains both computer generated images and actual video of the BRT system in Eugene, OR.

Two of the options would travel through Hudson Road in Woodbury.
Area residents, city staff and elected officials were at an open house Thursday to learn about and give feedback on the seven options being considered for future transit routes along Interstate 94 from Minneapolis to Eau Claire, Wis. Among the options are bus rapid transit (a step up from express bus service in which buses sometimes have their own specially built lanes) and light-rail transit routes that would travel along Hudson Road in Woodbury. Click here for an explanation of all the route options being considered. Woodbury leaders said they didn’t have a preferred route at this time, but that they were glad that plans are being made to improve transportation along the corridor.
