Miami-Dade Transit provides safe, reliable, efficient and accessible public transportation on more than 100 bus routes and 22 miles of rapid transit. Riding mass transit is one of the primary ways to help reduce their greenhouse gas emissions and lessen traffic congestion.
Riding on transit also helps to save money. According to the American Public Transportation Association, the cost savings of taking transit over driving to work continues to rise. As of January 2014, commuters who take transit instead of driving to work save $829 a month on average, or nearly $10,000 a year.
In keeping with the County’s green efforts, and to provide residents with the latest bus technology, reliability and comfort, Miami-Dade Transit has placed hybrid buses into passenger service. These buses operate in routes with heavy passenger usage and in Bus Rapid Transit corridors such as Kendall Drive and the I-95 Express. Hybrid buses typically save 25% in fuel costs, are quieter, run smoother and have lower emissions.
