South Dade TransitWay Corridor

The South Dade TransitWay Corridor (South Corridor) is one the six rapid transit corridors of the Strategic Miami Area Rapid Transit (SMART) Plan. The corridor runs 20 miles along the South Dade TransitWay from SW 344 St. on the south to the Dadeland South Metrorail Station on the north. Development of the six SMART Plan rapid transit corridors will directly support the mobility of our population and the County’s employment growth.

On Thursday, August 30, 2018, the Miami-Dade Transportation Planning Organization (TPO) Governing Board voted on the Locally Preferred Alternative (LPA) for the South Dade TransitWay corridor and selected Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) as the most feasible mode of transportation for this 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.

About SMART Plan

On April 21, 2016, the Miami-Dade Transportation Planning Organization (TPO) Governing Board officially adopted and endorsed the proposed Strategic Miami Area Rapid Transit (SMART) Plan. The SMART Plan intends to advance six of the Peoples Transportation Plan (PTP's) rapid transit corridors, along with a network system of Bus Express Rapid Transit (BERT) service, to implement mass transit projects in Miami-Dade County. To ensure the SMART Plan moves forward, the Miami-Dade TPO Governing Board directed the Miami-Dade TPO Executive Director to work with the TPO Fiscal Priorities Committee (FPC) to determine the costs and potential sources of funding for Project Development and Environment (PD&E) studies for the projects, and to also take all necessary steps to implement the SMART Plan.

The purpose for the PD&E studies is to identify the most feasible mode(s) of transportation, locations for transit stations and 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. Premium transit modes to be evaluated include Bus Rapid Transit (BRT), Light Rail Transit (LRT), Heavy Rail Transit (HRT)/Metrorail, Connected Autonomous Vehicles (CAV) and other appropriate premium technologies.

Miami-Dade County Director of Transportation and Public Works, Alice N. Bravo, P.E., explains the SMART Plan on NBC 6.
