Family and friends dropping off/picking up passengers at Union Depot can do so in two different locations: on Kellogg Boulevard in front of the entrance or inside the parking ramp entrance located at Kellogg and Broadway in the short-term parking area (limited to 15 minutes).
Union Depot’s use as a multi-modal transportation hub is integral to the planning of many transit corridors serving the east metropolitan region. The Minnesota High-Speed Rail commission is focused on connecting the Twin Cities to Chicago via a second daily train. Riverview Corridor will connect the Mall of America and MSP airport with Union Depot and is under study to narrow route and vehicle options. The Rush Line Corridor is being explored for transit improvements between Forest Land and Union Depot. The Gold Line/Gateway Corridor follows Interstate 94 from Woodbury/Lake Elmo and will bring commuters to Union Depot by bus rapid transit. The Red Rock Corridor broke ground on a new transit station in Newport, Minn., to connect Hastings to downtown Minneapolis via St. Paul.
