Take survey about transportation along Nicollet-Central corridor

Thousands of people a day travel along the corridor that includes Nicollet Avenue in south Minneapolis, Nicollet Mall in downtown and Central Avenue in Northeast. If you use these streets, the City would like to hear from you about your transportation needs and priorities.

The survey asks how you get around in the Nicollet-Central corridor, and what challenges with existing transit service and opportunities for improving transit you see.  The City is now conducting a study to identify a preferred transit enhancement for the corridor, which could include a streetcar line or enhanced bus options. Your survey answers will help the City understand the needs and priorities for transit improvements in the corridor as part of the study.
