Mass transit is an important resource to north Minneapolis residents in particular.
According to recent census data, 27 percent of households in the area do not own a car, compared to 18 percent of households in Minneapolis as a whole. Of the 200 Metro Transit bus routes, four routes that run on or cross West Broadway are among the 12 most popular. One of those, Route 14, travels along West Broadway between Robbinsdale and downtown Minneapolis and has approximately 6,300 weekday riders. Investments in transit infrastructure to improve travel speed, increase reliability, enhance the ride and create faster connections will benefit the thousands that already rely on transit, and make transit a more viable mode of transportation for additional residents.
