City of South Miami Intermodal Transportation Plan

The South Miami Intermodal Transportation Plan is a community-based transportation plan that provides for convenient and effi cient use of motorized and non-motorized transportation and addresses issues such as vehicular circulation, parking, pedestrian/bicyclist movements, and public transportation, resulting in short- and long-term strategies for implementation of the resultant plan.

Implementation Plan for Enhanced Bus Service (EBS) along Flagler Corridor

Overview The Flagler Street Enhanced Bus Service Implementation Plan builds on earlier enhanced bus service (EBS) corridor studies and plans in the Miami area, namely for the NW 27th Avenue and Biscayne Boulevard corridors, and proposes a plan for the operation of EBS along the Flagler Street corridor. The objective of the plan is to improve transit service along the corridor by providing high-frequency service and enhanced passenger amenities, (i.e. bus stop shelters/benches) thereby improving the transit experience of existing riders and attracting new riders that would have otherwise used a private automobile to complete their trip. The Flagler Street Enhanced Bus Service Implementation Plan was developed by the Miami-Dade Metropolitan Planning Organization in coordination with Miami-Dade Transit (MDT).

Miami-Dade MPO receives “Award of Excellence”...

2040 LRTPThe Miami-Dade MPO’s “Miami-Dade 2040 Long Range Transportation Plan” has been selected for an Award of Excellence in the 14th Annual Planning Awards by the Gold Coast Section of the American Planning Association. Plan innovations include:

  • There was a concerted effort to reach Millennials, which included interactive meetings at local college campuses.
  • “Blocks & Ribbons” public involvement exercise that provided a 3-D interactive medium for participants to visualize population and employment growth, and to provide transportation solutions within limited funding.
  • Interactive survey technology was utilized at public involvement meetings to gauge sentiment regarding mobility issues and challenges facing Miami-Dade County. 
  • The Mobility Needs Assessment Tool (MNAT) was developed with a study preceding the LRTP update process  to provide a corridor level mobility assessment tool. 
  • Financial Set-Asides were made for Non-Motorized, Congestion Management, and Freight specific projects. 
  • Emphasis was made on improving freight movement and freight intermodal connections between PortMiami, Miami International Airport, and the regional transportation network. 
  • Highlights several “illustrative” projects, which are projects that may be included in the 20-year plan time frame if additional financial resources become available. 
  • For a select few of the illustrative projects, P-3 could be a project delivery mechanism whereby the private sector may help speed up implementation by participating in financing, design/build, and operations & maintenance (O&M).
