Minneapolis: Greatest Cities for Mass Transportation

Minneapolis' Metro Transit system features both bus and light-rail services, but what makes this city's transit system stand out is its winter accommodations. "In the winter, some bus stations are indoors, feature heat lamps and have displays for estimated bus arrival times," says rider and Hennepin County Commissioner Jan Callison.

To accommodate rush-hour commuters, bus services use the carpool lane in the mornings and evenings. "The bus is very fast and direct," Jan says. "The express bus service downtown is faster than driving a car."

Aside from its superb bus services, Minneapolis also offers a light-rail system that currently runs from downtown Minneapolis to the Northwest suburbs. Proposals have been made to expand the light-rail system to the Southwest, which would provide service to five more suburban communities.
