The design guidelines in this study report for Transit-Oriented Development in the North Minneapolis Penn-West Broadway Avenue redevelopment area are the result of a nine-month long public planning process.
The intersection of Penn-West Broadway Avenue will be the location for an inbound and outbound Bottineau Boulevard Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) station, scheduled for construction in late 2006. The BRT stations will be heated, well-lit and partially enclosed, with ticket machines for off-board fare collection and real-time information kiosks that show the arrival time of the next bus. Bus Rapid Transit combines ef. ciency, speed and the lower cost of buses using service features such as limited stops and signal priority.
These design guidelines present the vision of the West Broadway Community Advisory Committee and the West Broadway community for the future and should inspire and guide redevelopment within the Penn-West Broadway Transit-Oriented Development (TOD) District.
