Micromobility networks allow for commuters to travel short distances by way of lightweight, single-person vehicles, such as bicycles and scooters. In essence, a micromobility network provides shared mobility solutions and helps to better connect communities while prioritizing bicyclist and pedestrian safety.
Many major cities in the country and around the world have been transforming traditional street designs into more Complete Streets by adding protected bike lanes, thus creating connected micromobility networks.
Currently, Miami-Dade County is working on building the first Micromobility Network in the heart of downtown Miami, which will change the way cyclist and pedestrians get around in downtown.
Ultimately, the plan is to continue to progressively build and expand this and other micromobility networks throughout the County.Details about the Downtown Miami Micromobility Network can be found in project fact sheet and project plans, which include a new addition to the network on NE 15 Street. Once the entire project is completed, the Downtown Miami Micromobility Network will provide a total of five miles of new separated bicycle lanes.
South Dade Micromobility Network
In 2020, Miami-Dade County completed the construction of protected bike lanes along SW 211 Street from South Dixie Drive to SW 108 Court.
The project includes nearly 6,000 linear feet of raised concrete separators, a green bicycle lane, high emphasis crosswalks and milling and resurfacing.
Completion of this project in South Dade was an important step in moving in the right direction to transform of our County into a more livable, transit centric, and safe community.
