    Rail expansion, rail expansion, rail expansion!


  2. Juan Navarro says:

    Trolley/train network for Biscayne, through the Gables, From Palmetto station down to Dadeland South and rail service to FIU, so we can get to where we want to get to!
    Development push AROUND the old stations so that there is SOMETHING to go to.


  3. AMV says:

    Agreed! Rail expansion is much-needed around here in Miami. Starting with Baylink rail to Miami Beach then West Corridor from MIA then North Corridor…


  4. Juan Navarro says:

    So when should we all show up?!? Can wejsut raise our hands and say “MORE!”


  5. John says:

    We were sold a similar lie 10 years ago.


  6. Gables says:

    The link on the flyer does not work and there is no mention of dates for the meetings. It looks like we are all going to have to email for more info.


  7. Transit Planner says:

    HOW IS THIS A TRANSIT PLAN? This is a great bus plan, but what about the rest of transit? Remember those other 2 MetroRail and MetroMover. Write your county commissioner and demand a FULL TRANSIT PLAN.


  8. Timoteo Cruz says:

    1. Metrorail to the Design District from Govt Center via Biscayne Boulevard.

    2. Metrorail (Baylink) to South Beach.

    3. Metrorail to Miracle Mile via Calle Ocho.

    4. Metrorail to FIU via Calle Ocho.

    Done. So easy. I should be MDT Director. Watch out Mrs. Ysela Llort!


  9. AMV says:

    Um I have to disagree from you, Cruz.

    1.) Metrorail to the Design District from Govt Center via Biscayne Boulevard. There is a free trolley on Biscayne Boulevard route that can take you to Design District so all you need to do is to get off at Adrienne Arsht metromover station and catch trolley at that stop. But yes, I do think that metrorail need to expand in downtown. A new line can be built out from Overtown station (making its station to be popular again as government station) by building a new line to Aventura. That was one of original metrorail matter plan back in 2000s. There is a space for its line to be built out by following CFS train tracks right next to Overtown station.

    2.) Metrorail to FIU and Miracle Mile via Calle Ocho is an impossible to built since there is no space on the streets for new big station with its parking. There is no space for its columns to be built on the medians because there are no medians on the streets. It is full and cramped street with two lanes on each sides and full of stores crammed together in all of the row on that street. It won’t work.
    What can work is to build that end line of MIA station at MIC, according to its original plan on West Corridor, it can built out of that station and go down to 836 expressway then go to west along that expressway and make some stations at different malls such as maybe Mall of the Americans but for sure at Doral, International Mall, Dolphin Mall, then finally go down to Sweetwater where FIU is at. That is how it can work because there is available space for metrorail concrete columns to be construct on…

    No offense but you need to study on map first before declaring to world that you think you will become a better MDT director. You would not want to become a public humiliation as MDT director…

    Oh by the way, you guys don’t need to worry about Coral way/Miracle Mile because there will be another new free trolley route on Coral way coming on September. It will connect to Downtown routes and even go to Port of Miami there. Perfect there is no need of expensive taxi! I think it will make last stop at end of Le Juene by City Hall then turn around back again to Downtown.


  10. John Gamble says:

    Great bus plan all the citizens want more regional bus transit and heavy rail expansions and also the metromover should be Extended!!!


  11. AMV says:

    Yes, I always thought that Omni metromover Loop should reconfigure just after branded new Museum Park station. After that station, I thought that it would better if it went to up north on N Bayshore Drive with new stops of future condos on old Herald site, hotels area, Margaret Pace Park then loop back down on Biscayne Boulvard to make more stops along the way until reaching Adrienne station.


  12. AMV says:

    I’ve an idea. Why don’t we e-mail to All Aboard Florida, Miami Transit Department and City of Miami Commission to encourage them to collaborate together to build/make a space for Baylink station next to Miami Train Station? Just like Miami Central Station concept. I think it would make a great transportation hub down there because in that way, people would be able to hop on Baylink after getting off the All Aboard Train/Tri-Rail train. It would save all of us from traffic on MacArthur Causeway. In bonus news, All Aboard Florida Miami Station is also right next to Miami Government Center metrorail and metromover station! It is a great options for all of us to be able travel all around without needing a car. Decobike station is coming to downtown as well. =)
