September – November
We will release two different network concepts for discussion and debate.
We will hold a series of workshops and have a community survey to shape the final network plan.
December – February
The final network plan will be voted on by the Board of County Commissioners.
If the plan is approved, we will hold information sessions ahead of the plan being implemented in 2020.
We presented a 5-minute update to the Transportation & Finance Committee. We talked about what's happened so far, a preview of the Choices report, and what's next for the Better Bus Project.
The project survey is still open, and you can take it at www.betterbus.miami/survey
We held a Priorities Workshop for elected officials, major community organizations and business leaders.
With over 60 attendees, we divided everyone into groups and they played a transit visioning exercise. We also conducted some live polling based on the choices for the new bus network.
We presented a 5-minute update to the Transportation & Finance Committee of the Board of County Commissioners. The presentation includes a project overview, an explanation of "the big question" and what's next for the Miami-Dade County bus system redesign.
During this phase of our project, we are combining extensive data analysis with broad surveying to determine how to approach the new bus network.
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.
