Beach Corridor Transit Project Development Study
The Beach Corridor Transit Project Development Study will update earlier planning efforts and culminate with the selection of a preferred alternative for modal technology and alignment. The selected alternative will connect with existing Miami-Dade Transit services including Metrobus, Metrorail and Metromover and will enable commuters to connect with Tri-Rail Commuter Rail Service to reach other parts of South Florida and beyond.
The proposed Beach Corridor Transit Connection will serve the cities of Miami and Miami Beach along a 6.5 mile corridor crossing Biscayne Bay to link downtown Miami to Miami Beach with premium transit service. The Beach Corridor study area is an epicenter for population and economic growth and a major employment center and tourist destination in Miami-Dade County. As a result, the roadways between Miami and Miami Beach are typically heavily congested. This high bus transit ridership corridor has been identified as a candidate for consideration for premium transit in the past two decades as part of a strategy to address east-west directional travel demands.
Miami-Dade County, in partnership with the Miami-Dade Metropolitan Planning Organization, Florida Department of Transportation and the cities of Miami and Miami Beach, have applied for $1.5M in Fiscal Year 2014, United States Department of Transportation TIGER (Transportation Investment Generating Economic Recovery) Discretionary Grant Program funding to complete the Project Development phase for the proposed Beach Corridor Transit Connection project. A copy of the grant application is provided at the link below:

Biscayne Boulevard Corridor
The Biscayne Boulevard Corridor (Corridor), roughly defined as U.S. Route 1 from the Downtown Miami area to the Aventura Mall near the Miami- Dade – Broward County line, is one of the busiest transit corridors in Miami-Dade County (County). The Corridor extends approximately 15 miles through the historic core of the County that was developed along the Florida East Coast (FEC) railroad and links Aventura, North Miami, North Miami Beach, and Miami Shores with the County’s Central Business District located in the Downtown Miami area.
Enhanced Bus Services (EBS) along Biscayne Boulevard will replace the existing Route 93. This study seeks to maintain consistency with previous and ongoing planning efforts while advancing the status of transit planning in the County.
NW 27th Avenue Enhanced Bus Service (EBS)
The NW 27th Avenue Enhanced Bus Service (EBS) corridor extends 13 miles from the Miami Intermodal Center (MIC), located adjacent to Miami International Airport, north along NW 27th Avenue from
State (SR) 112 (Airport Expressway) to NW 215th Street at the Broward County Line. At the southern end of the corridor, the MIC serves as an intermodal transportation terminal providing connectivity between Metrorail, Metrobus, Miami International Airport (MIA) via the MIA Mover, Tri-Rail (commuter rail), Amtrak (intercity rail), and Greyhound (intercity bus). Along the corridor, the EBS will connect the cities of Miami, Opa Locka and Miami Gardens and major activity centers including the Miami-Dade College North Campus (MDC), North Dade Health Center, St. Thomas University, Florida Memorial College, Miami Jobs Corps Center, Sun Life Stadium, and the Calder Race Course. At the northern end of the project corridor, a new transit terminal and park-and-ride facility will be constructed along NW 215th Street to serve as a transit terminal for the NW 27th Avenue EBS as well as local MDT Metrobus routes and Broward County Transit (BCT) routes. The long-term vision includes the addition of transit-oriented development (TOD) at the NW 215th Street transit terminal.
Enhanced Bus Services (EBS) along NW 27th Avenue will replace the existing Route 297. This study seeks to maintain consistency with previous and ongoing planning efforts while advancing the status of transit planning in the County.
Land Use Planning & Transit Study - NW 215th Street and NW 27th Avenue
As part of the series of meetings, a Town Hall style meeting was held at the North County Citizen’s Association Homeowners Meeting in March 2011. There, residents and stakeholders were invited to sit down with members of the County’s Urban Design Center to illustrate and brainstorm what their vision for the parcel could look like in the future.
As a result of the meeting, the citizen’s maps would become the backbone for the ultimate vision that integrates transit and land-use to assure successful and well utilized transit facilities, as well as, stimulating the land development and economic growth of the area.
Tolled Managed Highways
The purpose of the “Tolled Managed Highways with Rapid/Enhanced Bus Routes and Ridesharing" study is to develop plans for a county-wide network of tolled managed highways with rapid/enhanced bus routes and ridesharing that can be implemented in a five year timeframe. The study was completed by the Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) and provides a frame work for building a strategic network of transit terminals and rapid/enhanced bus routes that take advantage of various managed lane projects proposed by highway agencies in Miami-Dade County.
