Red Rock Corridor plans coming along

The proposed Red Rock Corridor bus rapid transit line would connect southwest suburbs as far out as Hastings to St. Paul. The route would link up with the Gateway Corridor’s stops in Dayton’s Bluff before continuing on into downtown St. Paul. (submitted graphic)

East Side stops added to plan
East Side residents could one day use a bus rapid transit line to go to jobs in Cottage Grove.
By the same route, southwest suburbanites from Newport all the way down to Hastings could easily travel into the East Side to visit restaurants or go to school at Metropolitan State University, or commute to work in downtown St. Paul. And from there, they could link up with other transit lines such as the Green Line light rail route between Minneapolis and St. Paul.
