PM Delays Continue in Downtown Minneapolis

As many of our Riders are aware, we continue to experience delays traveling south on Marquette Avenue in the afternoons. Southbound trips typically begin on time at Gateway Ramp. However, during the afternoon rush hour, cross-traffic is blocking intersections along Marquette. Buses are not permitted to enter an intersection unless able to fully clear it. At times, buses are waiting up to 3 or 4 light cycles to be able to do this. We are aware that this situation is frustrating for everyone involved. We have been working with the City of Minneapolis to seek solutions and improvements. In the meantime, we greatly appreciate your patience.
