Let’s Get Miami-Dade Back on Track
Miami-Dade County is considering a new commuter rail plan that can get you from Kendall to Wynwood to Aventura without a car.
This commuter rail initiative will significantly reduce travel time, create nearly 25,000 local jobs to support economic recovery, generate $7.2 million annually for public schools, remove 1.45 million cars from our roads annually and reduce 3,644 metric tons of CO2. This is the closest we have been at realizing a public transit system that truly connects South Florida residents and visitors.
