What is the Riverview Corridor Modern Streetcar project?

The Riverview Corridor Modern Streetcar project is a 12-mile planned transportation connection, that will run generally along State Highway 5 (West 7th Street), connecting neighborhoods, anchor destinations and employers in downtown St. Paul, MSP Airport and the Mall of America.

This project addresses the mobility needs of an area with projected employment and population growth, including a transit reliant population that needs accessible, dependable service and provides opportunities for economic development. The route, station locations and transit vehicle were chosen during a study completed in 2017.

Refining the modern streetcar concept 

Ramsey County is analyzing design concepts, working together with Saint Paul, Bloomington, Hennepin County, Metro Transit, MnDOT, tribal governments and other area stakeholders to find the right streetcar solution.The modern streetcar has many benefits:

FLEXIBLE - runs on rails in its own right-of-way or in shared lanes with traffic.
ACCESSIBLE - features level boarding to walk or roll directly onto streetcar.
EFFICIENT - faster boarding with pre-paid fares.
SUSTAINABLE - fully electric producing less air and noise pollution.
CAPACITY - carries more passengers than a bus.
