Potential Impacts of Bus Rapid Transit on the West Broadway Neighborhood.

Fathman, Carrie Ann and Kristine F. Miller.

The Bottineau Boulevard Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) project is a joint effort among Hennepin County, the seven municipalities along Bottineau Boulevard, and Metro Transit (a service of the Metropolitan Council). The primary goal of BRT is to connect the suburban communities along the Northwest Corridor to downtown Minneapolis by way of a state-of-the-art, time-saving rapid transit system. Although BRT offers clear benefits for commuters from areas including Osseo, New Hope, Brooklyn Park, and Robbinsdale by offering direct links to downtown job centers, questions remain about its effects on West Broadway, the main commercial corridor of North Minneapolis. This article reports on a project to examine the potential impacts of the proposed Bottineau Boulevard BRT on the West Broadway neighborhood. Based on the findings of the research project, the authors offer recommendations for moving toward transportation equity through equity in transportation decision making.
