Bus Route 537 changes will improve access near France and Old Shakopee

Effective March 9, three stops are being added to the south end of Metro Transit's weekday Route 537. Riders can hop on at stops along Old Shakopee Road, Beard Avenue, 108th Street and in front of Cub Foods to get to Normandale College and Southdale Mall and back.

The new Beard Avenue stop will allow residents of Penelope 35 Apartments and Applewood Pointe Apartments to board the bus without having to cross Old Shakopee Road, improving safety and convenience when they use this route. Two additional stops have been added to the south end of the bus route as well.
