Get your kicks on Route 6: Mayor's plan to bolster bus use

Body: 

Mayor R.T. Rybak is talking with Edina and Metro Transit officials about launching a marketing campaign to increase bus ridership along the city’s retail spine linking Downtown with Southdale Mall.

The campaign would focus on Route 6, which serves riders traveling from Downtown Minneapolis to Edina, passing through popular shopping districts in Uptown, Linden Hills, and 50th & France.

While the ideas are conceptual at this point, Rybak said he’s eager to see more shoppers use transit as a way to alleviate the area’s traffic headaches.
