City of Rochester highlights various transportation options with mobility fair


ROCHESTER, Minnesota – On Saturday, the City of Rochester hosted a Mobility Show showcasing the various transportation options for getting to and around Med-City.
Lime scooters, Med-City Mover – the automated shuttle – and Hour Car, are just a few of the ways residents can get from place to place.
The centerpiece of the event is the scale-built station model of the LINK Rapid Transit project which showcases the design that separates these stations from local bus stops.
Electric buses will have level boarding – collection of outboard fares – and 3 doors.
It will be Minnesota’s first rapid transit line outside the metro area.
As Rochester expands, Rochester’s Nick Lemmer says there are challenges that come with it, like congestion and being able to find parking downtown.
“So by allowing us to use, for example, high-capacity, high-frequency rapid transit, it allows us to move a large number of people to the city center without cluttering the streets with cars,” explains he does.
Project leader Jarrett Hubbard said: “We went through a process with 10 citizens of the community to make the stations unique and special for the city of Rochester, and we’re trying to show that the community is going to be a different kind of. transit than what we know today with the Rochester transit service.
The rapid transit model will be at the corner of South East 2nd Street and the Civic Center Drive until October 1.
