The Gold Line (also known as the Gateway Transitway Corridor) is under study by Washington and Ramsey Counties for Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) and other alternatives from Saint Paul’s Union Depot to Manning Avenue on the eastern end of Woodbury, generally running along the I-94 corridor. Up to six (6) stations are being considered in Saint Paul, including in the vicinities of Union Depot, Mounds Boulevard, Earl Street, Etna Street, White Bear Avenue, and the Sun Ray shopping center. The City of Saint Paul is undertaking a Station Area Planning process in order to take full advantage of this major potential transportation investment. In April 2014, the Planning Commission appointed the Gold Line Station Area Planning Task Force and authorized the planning study.
The Gold Line (Gateway) Station Area Planning Task Force
met regularly in 2014 and 2015 to work towards creating plans to forward to the Planning Commission in 2015.
