Minnesota State Senators and Legislators sent a letter to the Minneapolis City Council urging them to include 24/7 bus lanes on Hennepin and approve the design. "We must now maximize the State and Federal investments in the E-Line Arterial Bus Rapid Transit and the City and Federal investments in Hennepin Avenue. Inclusion of dedicated transit lanes will improve mobility, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, promote equity and economic development. Bus lanes have been planned to work in tandem with other improvements to ensure continued progress and optimal benefits for Minneapolis residents when the E-Line opens for service."
