Purple Line route map from White Bear Lake at the north to Union Depot at the south.Applications are open through April 22 to serve on the Community and Business Advisory Committee for the METRO Purple Line, which will provide bus rapid transit service to communities in the northeast metro.

The METRO Purple Line is a 15-mile bus rapid transit project that will connect Saint Paul to White Bear Lake with 21 stations along mostly bus-only lanes. The Purple Line will serve Saint Paul, Maplewood, White Bear Township, Vadnais Heights, Gem Lake, and White Bear Lake with frequent, all-day service in both directions.

The Purple Line needs your point of view for our Community and Business Advisory Committee. The committee, composed of local residents and business representatives, advises the Metropolitan Council/Metro Transit on how the Purple Line can best serve nearby neighborhoods and businesses. We need your perspective on the project design, engineering, outreach, station-area planning and access, as well as construction and operations. The committee also serves as an information resource about the community and liaison to the neighborhoods and businesses the line will serve.

Apply to serve on the committee

Applicants must live, work, or own a business in one of the communities served by the line. Applications are due by April 22.
