The Beach Corridor is one of the six rapid transit corridors of the Strategic Miami Area Rapid Transit (SMART) Plan. The Beach Corridor runs from the Design District/Midtown Miami and Downtown Miami to the Miami Beach Convention Center area.
The Department of Transportation and Public Works (DTPW) is studying the implementation of the Beach Corridor Rapid Transit Project. The study aims to identify locations for transit stations, Park and Ride/transit terminal facilities, and the implementation of a cost-effective, high-ridership, new premium transit service with supporting pedestrian and bicycle facilities.
The Tier I evaluation considered seven rapid transit alternatives and developed alignments which recommended further analysis of four rapid transit alternatives. Additionally, a Miami Corridor Analysis report was completed to analyze north-south corridors that connect Midtown to Downtown Miami. Currently, the tier II evaluation of the four shortlisted rapid transit alternatives is in progress. This tier II evaluation includes additional scope of work for an expanded study area (Miami Beach) and an additional technology assessment (Personal Rapid Transit).

We connect people to places by providing a high-quality, safe, reliable, clean, and efficient mass transit system that meets the travel needs of the County's growing population and we provide vital transportation infrastructure systems and services.
Our mass transit system includes:
We provide all traffic signals countywide, along with all traffic control signs, street signage and pavement markings and all County and State-owned street lights. We build, operate and maintain movable and fixed bridges, swales, roadway surface repairs, guardrails, and along County road rights-of-way. We also operate and maintain the Rickenbacker and Venetian Causeways.
We manage the County Stormwater Utility for flood and water quality protection and maintain the secondary canal system.
Permits for all work within rights-of-way and code enforcement of unpermitted work is also handled by our Public Works division.
