The Metropolitan Council
The Metropolitan Council is the regional planning agency serving the Twin Cities seven-county metropolitan area and provides essential services to the region. http://www.metrocouncil.org/about/about.htm
One of their goals and responsibilities is to improve our transit system as Minnesota grows. You can view their plans in the state document "Metropolitan Council’s 2030 plan".
This becomes of vital intrest as our transportation system ages and events like the 35W bridge collapse happen. One of the major improvements will be the Central Corridor Light Rail Transit (LRT).
You can find more detailed information about our future light rail -central line here:
