SWLRT green line extension

Light Rail

Rapid growth in the southwest metro area is putting more demands on our existing roads and transit systems. By 2030, cities in this area are expected to add 55,000 residents and 83,000 jobs.

The Southwest Light Rail Transit (SWLRT) Green Line Extension is a proposed LRT line that will operate between downtown Minneapolis and Eden Prairie, through the communities of St. Louis Park, Hopkins, Minnetonka, and passing in close proximity to Edina. The proposed alignment includes 15 new stations along approximately 14.5 miles. Three stations are proposed for Hopkins.
