All the detoured trip start times start outside of the Gateway Ramp at 4th Avenue and 3rd Street. (There is no boarding inside the Gateway Ramp).

Boarding locations for all detoured routes include:

  • 4th Avenue/3rd Street
  • 4th Avenue/5th Street
  • 4th Avenue/ 7th Street
  • 3rd Avenue/ 11th Street

Customers are advised to arrive at boarding locations by the trip start time and that the buses will not hold anywhere along the route. Times of the routes may fluctuate due to weather, events and traffic incidents downtown.

Downtown Minneapolis Delays

For Routes: 460, 464, 465, 470, 472, 475, 476, 477, 478, 479, 490, 493

Jun 19th, 2019 9:21 am

As our Riders are aware, we continue to experience significant delays traveling south on Marquette Avenue in the afternoons. Southbound 'first-run' trips typically begin on time at Gateway Ramp. However, during the afternoon rush hour, cross-traffic blocks intersections along Marquette. Buses are not legally 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. Buses are then delayed moving through Minneapolis, and the buses that return to Minneapolis to begin 2nd- and 3rd-run trips begin later than scheduled.

Weather, road construction, and traffic incidents add to the already-significant delays. Days/evenings when major events (i.e. baseball games) take place downtown, delays are compounded significantly. There have been several days already this season that travel time from Gateway Ramp to the Convention Center takes over 60 minutes. 

Please know that we are aware that this situation is frustrating for everyone involved, and that our bus operators are doing the best they can to navigate through the Downtown Corridor. We have been working with the City of Minneapolis to seek solutions and improvements. We are currently seeking funding for traffic control assistance and also working with a new vendor to provide real-time bus location information to our riders.

In the meantime, we greatly appreciate your patience.
