Technical Kick-Off

A Resolution of Support for the Better Bus Project passed the Board of County Commissioners, and we held a technical kick-off meeting with Miami Dade Transit the very next day.

In attendance was Director Alice Bravo, Commissioner Levine-Cava, and representatives from several Commissioners' offices. Our technical team from Jarrett Walker + Associates walked everyone through the three main phases and next steps.

We also held kick-off meetings with the transportation departments at the City of Miami, City of Miami Beach and City of Coral Gables – the three trolley systems that are a part of the project.
