Project Goals: The study aims to provide additional transportation options to accommodate increasing population; provide an alternative to vehicular travel and bus transit service in the most traveled corridor in the County; improve connections to the two major economic engines of the region, Miami International Airport and Downtown Miami; and provide connections to regional transit service: TriRail, AMTRAK, and Metrorail.

Possible Modes:

·         Bus Rapid Transit (BRT)
·         Light Rail Transit (LRT)
·         Heavy Rail Transit (HRT)
·         Metrorail at-grade (powered by overhead lines), on exclusive lanes.
