Experiencing rapid cultural and economic growth, the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul — the two largest cities in Minnesota, United States — needed a public transportation solution to connect the two communities.

Serving as prime consultant on all project phases, AECOM completed the $957-million, 11-mile-long Green Line Light Rail system on time and within budget. 

According to Susan Haigh, chair of the Metropolitan Council, the regional policy-making body, planning agency, and provider of essential services for the Twin Cities metropolitan region: “This is a new beginning for our region as this Green Line forever links our two great cities, better connects thousands of workers to their jobs, and attracts thousands of new residents who want to live along this line."
