Metro Transit Offers Travel Assistance during I-35W Contruction Work

Via a June 4 e-newsletter from Metro Transit:

I-35W Construction – Ride it out with us!

Know how to navigate your way to, through and from downtown during the ongoing I-35W construction project. Minimize your stress by letting Metro Transit get you downtown and back on bus or the METRO Blue Line. Many routes will have transit advantages, making the move from your car to a bus or train an easy decision!

There will be enhanced service added to routes 133, 135, 146, 156, 467, 535, 552, 553, 554, 558 and 578. Service levels in the corridor will increase by 40% for affected routes; with standby buses and new trips added during morning and evening rush hours.

Other transit advantages include:
• Rush hour bus-only lanes on Park and Portland avenues
• Northbound HOV lane access all the way to 31st Street with exclusive access to exits at 31st Street
• Multiple Park & Rides within the corridor for even more access and convenience
