MIAMI — Miami-Dade County leaders have unveiled a new rapid bus system to expand public transit as a low-cost alternative to Metrorail. The Miami Herald asked local CEOs there thoughts on whether they think buses are the way to go, or if rail is more desirable for frequent commuters.

Some of the responses included:

- I’m a strong proponent of rail. Light Rail is really the direction that I think most cities are moving to. [Brian Brackeen, CEO, Kairos]

- Alleviating our traffic problems is going to require a multi-pronged solution. Rapid buses are part of the answer, but we also need to invest in rail and technology that helps people plan their commutes. There is no single-track solution. [Ramon Abadin, president, The Florida Bar, and partner, Sedgewick Law Firm]. For the full story, click here.
