The last thing South Miami-Dade needs is an ugly toll-road lane on the Busway. The initial goal was that this road would encourage commuters to ride a fast bus, and skip the car. I see the Busway as a huge success and a precursor to extending rail transit south in the form of heavy rail or light rail as many U.S. cities have done.
Now that we have rail service to the airport, and the possibility of private rail to take us to Orlando, let’s connect South Miami-Dade with rail. It will convert our area into a true mixed-transportation metropolis.
