Secrets of the METRO Green Line

03:00 PM - 06:00 PM Central Standard Time

Victoria Street Station
1117 University Avenue West
St. Paul, MN , 55104



Go behind the scenes with the people who brought the region's newest light rail line from planning to reality.

Fresh off its June 14 debut, come learn secrets of the METRO Green Line from someone who's seen it evolve from infancy to opening.

ABOUT OUR SPEAKER:

For seven years, Christina Morrison lived and breathed the Green Line and its environs as a planner with the City of Saint Paul, where she led many aspects of the light rail-focused, building face to building face reconstruction that breathed new life into University Avenue. A longtime resident of the University Avenue corridor, Christina also had a front-row seat to multiple Green Line construction seasons. Her blog's fresh, witty take on Green Line construction was recently the subject of aMinnesota Women's Press feature. After leaving her job with the city in 2013, Christina now brings her infectious passion for transit to Metro Transit, where she manages development of the METRO Orange Line

ABOUT THE PROGRAM:

On this tour, Christina will provide the backstory on planning and design of some not-so-visible details along the 10-mile line. We'll ride the Green Line between several St. Paul stations, and get out at points along the way to learn more about project elements, transit-oriented developments, and more. Don't miss this fun event!

3:00 Meet at Victoria Street Station, westbound platform - Vehicles may be parked on side streets, but please note that parking is limited, so attendees are encouraged to walk, bike, carpool, or (best of all) take transit. 

3:15-4:30 Riding & Walking Tour - Ride the Green Line and walk around station areas. Wear comfortable shoes for this urban stroll!

4:30-6:00 Happy Hour - We'll train back to Victoria Street Station and enjoy happy hour at Ngon Vietnamese Bistro
