MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – Starting Friday, each route the light rail takes is getting a new name.

They’ll be colors instead of being named after streets, or the areas they serve.

The Hiawatha Light Rail Line will now be called the Metro Blue Line.

Metro Transit workers unveiled the new signs at the 46th Street Station, and the trains will have three cars to help with the increase of passengers.

Some of the other lines are getting new names, too.

The Green Line will run between downtown St. Paul and downtown Minneapolis when it begins service next year.

The Red Line will open on Cedar Avenue in June, and it’ll provide bus rapid transit between Apple Valley and Mall of America.

In 2018, the Orange Line will run along 35W.
