Southwest Regional Corridor Transit Study

Southwest Transitway, an agency of the Hennepin County Regional Railroad Authority (HCRRA) over sees the Southwest Alternatives Analysis Study and provides various informational services regarding the development of a transit plan for routes that would connect Minneapolis to the southwest suburbs. The SWAA Study continues an earlier study - the Southwest Regional Corridor Transit Study -- and previous efforts by HCRRA and its partner cities to identify and compare the benefits, costs and impacts of various transit modes and routes.

The Southwest Regional Trail runs within the SW Regional Transit Corridor from Minneapolis through St. Louis Park, Hopkins, Minnetonka and Eden Prairie. The corridor and other routes are being considered for various modes of public transit including Light Rail Trains.
