South Dade TransitWay Corridor
On Friday, May 29, 2020, the Department of Transportation and Public Works received final confirmation from the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) for the County’s funding request of $100 million for the South Corridor Rapid Transit project.
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. Check out how TSP and Smart Signals are reducing commute time for Metrobus passengers on the TransitWay.
