Maple Grove Transit announced the construction of the new Parkway Transit Station located along Maple Grove Parkway across the street from the Maple Grove Hospital. There will be 500 stall surface lot and indoor station.

Phase 1 is expected to open for use by late October 2010 and the indoor station will open in January 2010. When the park-and-ride lot open in October express bus operation for the Route 784 at the Wal-Mart Park-and-Ride lot will cease and expanded as the new Route 785 at the Parkway Station. The Route 785 will offer seven trips to Minneapolis in the morning and seven return trips in the evening. The new MCI coaches will be used on this route.
