Transit Patterns Archive

The Transit Patterns Archive layer contains all fixed patterns serving the Twin Cities regional metropolitan area. A single route has multiple patterns often characterized by different terminals or branches. One shape and one corresponding record exists for each individual transit pattern. The to and from dates represent when that geometry and attribute information was valid.<br/><br/>The line work for the dataset was derived from NCompass Street Centerlines pre-November 23, 2019. Line work post-November 23, 2019 is a combination of Road Centerlines (GAC) for the 7-county metro area and NCompass Street Centerlines for Sherburne and Wright county. A small number of line segments have been added to completely depict all patterns traveled by fixed-route transit vehicles.
