Origin-Destination Surveys for Local Bus Service (South Garage) Study

The Miami‐Dade County Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) is conducting a series of transit ridership on‐board surveys in Miami‐Dade County to support the regional transit modeling efforts. The current Origin-Destination Surveys for Local Bus Service – South (Coral Way) Garage Study is the fifth and final effort needed to complete on‐board surveys for the entire Miami‐Dade Transit (MDT) system. These surveys are intended to obtain more accurate ridership characteristics, such as origin-destination patterns trip purpose, and mode of access and egress.

Miami-Dade MPO Recertified until 2019!

Every four years the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) conduct a review of the Miami-Dade MPO’s transportation planning process, as required by law. The Federal Team conducted a site visit with MPO staff from April 22nd to April 23rd, which commenced with a comprehensive, interactive presentation provided by MPO staff explaining the multitude of work products completed and best practices achieved over the last four years. This presentation became the fabric of the meeting as both MPO staff and the Federal Team were able to communicate to one another what the required regulations were and how each one was successfully accomplished.

As a result of this effort, a joint letter from FHWA and FTA was received stating that the Miami-Dade MPO continues to satisfy the provisions for metropolitan transportation planning, thereby substantially meeting the requirements of 23 CFR Part 450.

Our certification will remain in effect until August 2019.

Countywide Bus Access and Transfer Facility Assessment

The Miami-Dade MPO and Miami-Dade Transit (MDT) both seek to optimize access, utilization, and connectivity for passengers at five park-and-ride facilities that are currently at, or quickly approaching, parking capacity. This assessment provides conceptual improvement plan recommendations that will increase parking capacity and improve auto access as well as passenger connectivity to MDT services.

Compendium of Transportation Facts & Trends

Miami-Dade County is at the nexus of both domestic and international economic activity. It has significant influence in the metropolitan region that bears its name, the entire state of Florida, the United States as a whole, and most of the Western Hemisphere. Miami-Dade’s location, and the transportation connections that it supports, allows it to remain a uniquely diverse and economically significant mega hub with strong indications for further growth well into the 21st Century. Indeed, this prosperity is directly linked to the efficient movement of people and goods throughout the region and beyond.

The purpose of this Compendium of Transportation Facts and Trends is to showcase the components, contributions, and importance of Miami-Dade’s transportation system. In doing so, it examines how Miami-Dade interacts with and compares to other places using multimodal transportation and economic-related data.
