Better Bus Project
An intensive 2-year community-driven project to build a better bus system, starting with a complete redesign of the route network.
The biggest outcome of the project will be a new bus network that's more useful for more people – concentrating frequent service, building better connections, and creating a stronger network.The project will also be an opportunity to drive new goals around dedicated infrastructure, reliability, user experience, and trolley integration
Our annual Mobility Scorecard grades the health and performance of our transit system. Combining data, analysis and recommendations, it's designed to guide elected officials, community leaders, transportation planners – and you – on how we can move Miami forward, together.
A real-time audit of Miami’s Metrorail system, measuring the time between each train arriving at Government Center to determine the level of on-time performance. The audit is accessible to anyone via our website and measures performance 24 hours a day.
Where's My Bus
Transit Alliance produced a 5-week research series on the bus system, which included a 6-week deployment of two hired staff members to survey and engage bus riders across the county. The results were published online and widely publicized; a bus system redesign was one of the recommendations of the study.
Stop Transit Cuts
The proposed 2017-2018 budget called for significant cuts to Miami-Dade County transit services. The results would have been reduced service hours, route eliminations, poorer frequencies, and compromised maintenance at a time when increased and improved transit service was critical.
Transit Alliance led a campaign against the proposed budget cuts by mobilizing citizens, building political pressure, and raising awareness. Thanks to our advocacy, the county funded the transit system by $15 million, restoring Metrorail headways and preventing further cuts to the bus system.
