TITLE
RESOLUTION DIRECTING THE COUNTY MAYOR OR MAYOR’S DESIGNEE TO STUDY THE FEASIBILITY OF INSTALLING SAFETY BARRIERS AT BUS SHELTERS AND/OR BUS BENCHES IN ORDER TO PROTECT TRANSIT PATRONS AND REPORT THE FINDINGS OF SAID STUDY TO THE BOARD WITHIN NINETY DAYS

BODY

WHEREAS, the safety of transit patrons is of paramount importance; and
WHEREAS, the installation of safety barriers at bus shelters and/or bus benches may protect transit patrons from vehicles running off the road; and
WHEREAS, a feasibility study would assist in determining the potential costs, likely locations, and safety benefits of such an installation,
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS OF MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, FLORIDA, that this Board directs the County Mayor or Mayor’s designee to study the feasibility of installing safety barriers at bus shelters and/or bus benches in order to protect transit patrons and report the findings of said study to the Board within ninety days of the effective date of this Resolution. The County Mayor or Mayor’s designee is further directed to identify the 100 most utilized bus stops for the potential installation of safety barriers and review the feasibility of amending existing bus bench and bus shelter contracts to facilitate said installation.
