In the Twin Cities metropolitan area, significant long-range transit planning activities have been ongoing since the
late 1990s. By 2030, the region is expected to have a network of fourteen transitways converging on the
Minneapolis and St. Paul downtown areas. This project seeks to fully capitalize on the opportunities offered by
transitways, by testing forward-looking policy options that enable the effective integration of transit, land use
planning, and economic development.
The overarching goal of this research project was twofold: 1) to sensitize and prepare policymakers for risks and
rewards of various future land use and transit scenarios; and 2) to develop best practices in regional land use and
transit planning for promoting economic growth and social equity.
