New Miami-Dade transit head wants to make city 'car-optional'

Posted on August 4, 2015

MIAMI — Miami-Dade County’s new transit director, Alice Bravo has a grand vision is to "make Miami a car-optional city one day,” Bravo tells New Times.

Bravo admits it's a long-term goal, but in the near future, she wants to create a system that can monitor intersection congestion and adapt on a moment’s notice depending upon traffic flow to optimize efficiency, according to the report.

For the longer term, Bravo is concentrating on convenient “connectivity points," which can be turned into stations and work to bring people to those stations (whether it be through adding sidewalks or bus lanes). From these stations, she wants to work with local municipalities to create shuttles to quickly take people to other hubs around the city, Miami New Times reported.
