MIAMI — In its annual Mobility Scorecard, the nonprofit Transit Alliance gave both Metrorail and Metrobus “D” grades because of unreliability and few plans to expand or supplement existing train and bus systems, while also giving Miami’s trolley service an “F,” reports WLRN.
The group added that it no longer supports Miami-Dade’s rapid transit plan, known as the SMART Plan, and will develop an alternate plan for transit expansion. It recommends a redesign of the county bus system and a focus on programs to improve safety for cyclists and pedestrians.
Transit Alliance also suggested creating a county transit authority —a single entity to oversee all county public transportation, which is currently fragmented among several departments and cities. For the full story, click here.
