Improvement Projects - Future Park & Ride Sites
Miami-Dade Transit (MDT) continues to plan and construct additional park and ride facilities designed to address parking demand from transit patrons throughout Miami-Dade County.
Park & Ride Sites Serving the Busway
SW 344 Street
MDT is planning to build a 266 space parking lot with bus bays and shelters, located west of the southern end of the Busway between NW 2nd Avenue and NW 3rd Avenue at 344th Street (Palm Drive), in Florida City. MDT is currently in the final stages of land acquisition activities. Design and relocations are complete. This facility has an anticipated opening date of October 2014.
Quail Roost Drive
MDT is pursuing the purchase of approximately 3 acres of vacant property adjacent to the Busway (located between SW 184th Street and SW 186th Street) on which a park-and-ride lot would be constructed. It is estimated that the lot would have approximately 279 parking spaces and six kiss-and-ride spaces. The facility will include fencing, landscaping, lighting and a canopy for waiting passengers. This facility has an anticipated opening for late 2015.
Park & Ride Sites Serving other bus routes
SW 127 Avenue / Kendall Drive
MDT is planning to construct a park-and-ride lot on approximately 2.8 acres at the southeast corner of SW 88th Street (Kendall Drive) and SW 127th Avenue with about 182 spaces. This park-and-ride will serve the Kendall Cruiser which began service in June 2010. This facility has an anticipated opening for late 2014.
SW 88th St./Kendall Dr. and SW 150th Ave
On June 28, 2010, MDT opened a new 109 space park-and-ride lot to provide free, convenient parking for customers who commute using the Kendall Cruiser bus route. This park-and-ride is currently being leased from the property owner. However, MDT is pursuing the Right-of-Way Acquisition, Design and Construction of a park-and-ride directly adjacent to this location. This proposed facility will accommodate approximately 140 parking spaces, and will include bus bays and bicycle racks. The completion date for this facility is estimated for May 2016.
NW 27th Ave. and NW 215th St
A 14-acre vacant parcel adjacent to the intersection of the Turnpike and NW 27th Avenue has been identified as a strategic park-and-ride location for the NW 27th Avenue Enhanced Bus Service project. Up to 350 parking spaces are proposed for this facility which would serve the northern most station for new enhanced bus or Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) service in the corridor. This park-and-ride also provides strategic transit-oriented development (TOD) opportunities. This facility is anticipated to open in late 2017.
SW 8th St. and SW 147th Ave.
An 8-acre vacant parcel on the SW corner of the intersection at SW 8th Street and SW 147th Avenue has been identified as a strategic park-and ride location for the SR 836 Express Enhanced Bus Service project. Up to 500 parking spaces are proposed for this facility which would serve the western most station for the new enhanced bus or BRT service in the corridor. This park-and-ride lot also provides strategic transit-oriented development (TOD) opportunities. The estimated completion date is late 2017.
Northeast Transit Hub Enhancements (NETHE) – Formerly known as “Northeast Passenger Activities Center” (NE-PAC)
Since determining that the Northeast Passenger Activity Center (NEPAC) project was no longer feasible, MDT identified an alternative project which includes transit hub improvements at two existing transit hubs – the Mall at NE 163rd Street and Aventura Mall. Both of these transit hubs serve the northeast portion of the County and are major destinations with important bus connections, but each has multiple deficiencies. The Northeast Transit Hub Enhancements (NETHE) will upgrade both transit hub sites to improve bus and passenger access as well as upgrade area drainage, lighting, signage, shelters and other station area amenities. The completion date for NETHE – 163rd Street Mall - is estimated for June 2015. The NETHE - Aventura Mall - is estimated for completion around October 2015.
Douglas Road Metrorail Station Park and Ride Lot (111 Ruiz Avenue)
Miami-Dade Transit is planning to repair and restore the Park & Ride lot under the Metrorail guideway, located just south of the Douglas Road Station. The work includes paving, re-striping the parking spaces, fence repairs, tree trimming and miscellaneous safety upgrades.
