Buses return to Nicollet Mall Saturday, Dec. 2

With the completion of the new Nicollet, buses will return to the mall on Saturday, Dec. 2.

Metro Transit routes 10, 11, 17, 18, 25 and 59 will return to Nicollet Mall after operating on Hennepin Avenue since late 2015 while Nicollet was under construction.

Now that normal operations have returned to Nicollet, it’s important for drivers, pedestrians and other users of the mall to exercise extra caution and be aware of their surroundings.

Metro Transit will be adding a dozen new shelters on Nicollet later this year with heat, light and real-time displays. Hybrid rides and free rides on some routes will remain features on the mall.

For additional information about routes, visit Metro Transit’s website.

The new Nicollet, completed the end of November, features twice the amount of greenery with nearly 250 new trees, new LED lighting, a more elegant and sustainable streetscape and the city’s largest display of public artwork outside of the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden.
