About SouthWest Transit
In 1986, the SouthWest Minneapolis suburbs of Chaska, Chanhassen, and Eden Prairie chose to opt out of the Metropolitan Transit Commission transit system in accordance with Minnesota State Statutes. Under a joint powers agreement between the three cities, they created their own transit system, SouthWest Metro Transit.
Now known as SouthWest Transit, they continue to be the public transit agency for Chaska, Chanhassen and Eden Prairie, as well as Carver. SWT currently offers service to and from Downtown Minneapolis, the University of Minnesota, Normandale Community College and Best Buy Headquarters.
In addition to their regular route service, they offer a number of seasonal services, including State Fair, Twins Express, Vikings Express, Gophers Express, select concerts, and more.
