The Metropolitan Council has approved the final corridor plan for Metro Transit’s E Line, an arterial bus rapid transit route connecting Edina to Minneapolis.

The metro-wide planning body gave the green light to the number and location of stations situated along the 13.3-mile route at its June 22 meeting. The new rapid service, which will largely replace Metro Transit’s highly used Route 6 line, will run from the Southdale Transit Center along France Avenue toward downtown Minneapolis and the University of Minnesota, according to the final plan.
