METRO Green Line Extension Stations and Design Elements

This series of narrated design visualizations uses computer animation to show how the METRO Green Line Extension will operate in communities along the new LRT route. Along the way, each video highlights stations, pedestrian and bicycle facilities, and key structures such as bridges and tunnels. More information about passenger stations is available on the Route and Stations pages. The videos are closed-captioned and are also available on the Metropolitan Council's YouTube channel.
