ENDORSEMENT OF THE MODERN STREETCAR DESIGN – June 19, 2018
What is the Riverview Corridor?
The Riverview Corridor is defined by the Mississippi River on the south, the river valley bluff on the north, Lowertown and Union Depot on the east, and the Airport and Mall of America on the west.
The Ramsey County Regional Railroad Authority is leading a Pre-Project Development (PPD) Study to research, analyze and identify opportunities to improve transit within the Riverview Corridor. This study is scheduled for completion in late 2015 and will involve reviewing the viability of transit modes, transit location, engineering issues, community needs and preferences, and estimated costs.
The Riverview Corridor Pre-Project Development Study is be guided by a Policy Advisory Committee and a Technical Advisory Committee. Both committees seek and gather public input throughout the process to better understand the transit needs and opportunities for the diverse communities in the corridor.
The Riverview Public Advisory Committee is hosting four upcoming community meetings to share the results of the detailed analysis.

All of the meetings will be from 5:00 PM – 7:00 PM

We invite you to attend a community meeting to hear the latest update on the Riverview Corridor Transit Study and public comments on the detailed analysis results.
No final decisions have been made regarding transit routes or vehicles in the Riverview Corridor. However, the Policy Advisory Committee (PAC) met on July 13 and narrowed the options to six alternatives (route and vehicle). You can find descriptions and concepts of the remaining six alternatives on the project website, on the Committees page, under the July 13 PAC Meeting: http://riverviewcorridor.com/committees/

Initial screening of transit routes and vehicles now available
An executive summary of the initial screening of potential transit routes and vehicle types is posted on the Riverview Corridor website. Tech Memo #5, prepared as part of the Riverview Corridor transit study, summarizes the results of a high-level, qualitative analysis of a large number of potential transit routes and vehicle types.
The Initial Screening document, also called Tech Memo #5, identifies routes and vehicles recommended for more detailed study over the coming months. The Ramsey County Regional Railroad Authority invites you to review the summary report and provide comments. Share your thoughts at one of the community meetings scheduled in January. Or, share your thoughts with the project team by phone or email.
