Construction of the Metro D Line bus rapid transit (BRT) project is complete and will substantially replace Route 5 with faster, more frequent all-day service.

The 18-mile line connects neighborhoods and destinations from Mall of America through Richfield and Minneapolis to Brooklyn Center.

The D Line was constructed to deliver more equitable service in a corridor that has the region’s highest ridership. To learn more about transportation projects in Bloomington, visit
