Southwest LRT Green Line extension logoLight 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 is a proposed extension of a Light Rail Transit (LRT) line that would connect Eden Prairie, Minnetonka, Hopkins and St. Louis Park to downtown Minneapolis, the University of Minnesota and downtown St. Paul.
