Good News! The large portion of the ramp that was closed off on Tuesday and Wednesday has been completed and is now open. The work is on schedule and expected to be fully completed by the end of the month, as originally announced. Thank you for your patience as parking was an issue during this phase of the project!

We'd like to remind riders that an overflow lot located behind the ramp is available. Access to the lot is located between the parking ramp and Dakota Station apartments (turn left into driveway immediately after parking ramp.)

Express service to Minneapolis is also available from Heart of the City Park & Ride, located at 126th St & Pillsbury Avenue.

In July, MVTA modified many 460 trips to serve HOC to provide additional service/parking options for riders. 460 trips depart HOC between 5:25 am and 7:08 am.

Major delays are expected, and MVTA's detours will utilize transit advantages to make your commute as efficient as possible. 

MVTA Express Routes will continue to operate based on their regularly-scheduled departure times. However, travel times will increase and we strongly urge riders to plan accordingly. 

Lake Street will not be served during this construction project. Riders who currently use Lake Street as a transfer point will need to use alternative routing to reach their destinations. Alternative transfer points may include Downtown Minneapolis, Mall of America, or South Bloomington Transit Center. Please visit our Lake Street page for more information.
