Midtown Greenway

Greenway Glow 2018

The Midtown Greenway is a 5.5-mile long former railroad corridor in south Minneapolis with bicycling and walking trails.  It is owned by the Hennepin County Regional Railroad Authority and the trails are maintained by the City of Minneapolis.  The Midtown Greenway Coalition is the grassroots organization that successfully advocated for installation of the Midtown Greenway by public agencies.  The Coalition continues to engage our community in protecting, improving, and using the Greenway.


Carpooling (Metro Transit)

Every day you drive, it’s you vs. rush hour. Give yourself an advantage and team up! Save time and money by carpooling.

Carpoolers save on gas and use the MnPass lanes on I-394, I-35W and I-35E for free. And with our new ridematching system, finding a carpool partner is easier than ever!

Get started now!

If you’re ready to start a carpool, start by creating a profile and you’ll be entered into our searchable ridematching system. If you don’t find a match at first, keep checking. People interested in joining or forming a carpool are added every day.

If you already have a carpool profile, you may qualify for reduced-price or preferential parking at your workplace.
