South Dade TransitWay Corridor
Once completed, BRT will provide rail-like travel time, iconic stations, level boarding through all doors, and pre-paid fares for speedy access. BRT will also provide enhanced safety features and other upgrades along dedicated lanes with multi-layered service lines on the TransitWay. BRT is scheduled to begin operation by 2022.
In order to improve mobility throughout the County, DTPW is also deploying new technologies such as adaptive smart signals and Transit Signal Priority (TSP) controllers. Check out how TSP and Smart Signals are reducing commute time for Metrobus passengers on the TransitWay.

2017 Public Meeting
One Public Kick-Off meeting was held for the South Corridor study on May 31, 2017. The following key information was provided at the meeting:
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.
