MnLRT...Moving Minnesoootans Into the Next Century

Home | Big Picture | Facts | Get Involved | About MnLRT | Newsletters | Web Resources

 Over 20 metro areas across the United States are either developing new Light Rail Transit systems or are expanding existing systems. This list includes cities with subway and commuter rail systems, typically not defined as LRT. Nevertheless, the results are the same: transportation choice, economic development opportunities along rail corridors, less environmental impact, and incentives for less urban sprawl. The list also includes links to other Minnesota-related transportation sites.
