The Gateway Corridor will bring mass transit to areas that currently have limited access to bus service and no rail service. Maximizing ridership and the utility of the transitway is critical. How can the Gateway Corridor effectively serve those who live more than one quarter or one half mile from the stations? In particular, what strategies should be pursued in addition to park-and-ride infrastructure? The Gateway Corridor represents a vision within a vision: it is a worthy objective in its own right, but it is also an integral part of a new regional transit network serving the Twin Cities metropolitan area. Ensuring the success of the Corridor is thus not merely a service to the communities directly adjacent to the transitway, it is a service to the entire region. Fully integrated pedestrian and bicycle access is crucial to the fulfillment of that vision.
