Welcome to the Robert Street Transitway Project Website!
Welcome to RobertStreetTransit.com. This site serves as the focal point for information and public involvement opportunities for the Robert Street Transitway Alternatives Analysis. The Alternatives Analysis is a joint local and federal planning effort to determine possible improvements to transit service, which aims to ultimately identify a single transit route and mode for development in the future. Up-to-date information on the Alternatives Analysis and study reports will be made available here as the study progresses, as well as announcements for public involvement opportunities. Public comments and inquiries are always welcomed, and can be made on the Contact Us page.
October 2013 Open Houses
A third round of open house meetings for the Robert Street Transitway Alternatives Study is now scheduled for October 17 and 24. The focus with this round is to provide project updates with information on the routes and modes moving forward: streetcar and arterial bus rapid transit on Robert Street and highway bus rapid transit on Hwy 52. Project staff will seek feedback from attendees on proposed stations, service plans and downtown destinations. Attendees will be able to review and comment on aerial map displays of proposed stations for each mode. Information on each of the transit modes will be provided along with a demonstration of service differences between the transitway alternatives and traditional bus transit service. There will not be a formal presentation at the open houses, but staff will be available to answer questions.
The Oct. 17 open house is scheduled from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. at the Dakota County Northern Service Center, Room 110, 1 Mendota Road West, West St. Paul.
The Oct. 24 open house is scheduled from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Neighborhood House, Ferber Room, 179 Robie Street East, Saint Paul.
Dakota County will provide accommodations to persons with disabilities or those who are in need of an interpreter. Contact Dakota County Transportation at 952-891-7100 seven business days prior to the meeting.
