The 2025 Plan’s Transportation Committee is committed to advocating for enhanced transportation options in our region which ultimately will help drive business, residential and visitor growth.

Committee Chair: John Wheaton – Faegre Baker Daniels

Key 2025 Plan Goals:

LEAD THE NATION IN TRANSPORTATION OPTIONS

Maintain and improve high capacity for commuters on our streets. Increase transit’s mode share for daytime commuters from 40 percent to 60 percent. Increase circulation within Downtown by installing a Downtown Circulator (whether streetcars or zero emission buses), while intensifying regular transit service in close-in neighborhoods.

Initiatives:

  • Transportation Funding Resolution The Transportation Committee has the backing of the Mpls Downtown Council Executive Committee to continue supporting additional funding for future transit and transportation investments in our region.
