New taxi stand will better serve Warehouse District crowds on weekend nights

Beginning Friday, March 12, a new taxi zone in the Downtown Warehouse District will make it easier for bar and restaurant customers to catch a cab. The new taxi zone will be in place from 11 p.m. to about 2:30 a.m. on Friday and Saturday nights, and is conveniently located in the heart of the Warehouse District.

The taxi zone will be set up on 5th Street between Hennepin and 1st avenues, alongside the Hennepin Avenue/Warehouse District Light Rail station. Taxis will enter on Hennepin Avenue, pick up passengers on the south side of the street, and exit to the west. During the time the taxi zone is in operation, no other traffic will be allowed to use that block of 5th Street.
