Miami-Dade County is the gateway to the America’s with over 14.6 million visitors staying overnight in Miami-Dade County in 2014 alone. Those visitors spent another record $23.5 billion while they were here and most importantly, tourism supported over 130,000 jobs in our county. Ninety-six percent of travelers came through Miami. The County is also the cruise capital of the world with 4.8 million multi-day passengers. Additionally, Miami-Dade County oversees accessible transportation services. This includes the Metrobus fleet that runs approximately 28.9 million miles through most areas of Miami-Dade County; the electrically-powered, elevated, 25-mile rapid transit Metrorail system; the 4.4-mile elevated Metromover; and the paratransit service (Special Transportation Service) that meets the needs of the disabled. But even with all these investments to improve our transit and transportation system, Miami-Dade County needs additional mobility options.

All Aboard Florida/Tri-Rail Expansion

All Aboard Florida is a privately funded passenger rail service. It will connect Miami-Dade county passengers with Fort Lauderdale, West Palm Beach and Orlando. The Miami central station will be built next to county hall and include approximately 3 million square feet of transit-oriented development. Part of this project includes connecting the existing tri-rail system to downtown Miami.

Orange Line

The Metrorail Orange Line is a $500 million, 2.4 mile Metrorail extension that offers riders easy and affordable access to Miami International Airport and the surrounding area. The Orange Line received 80 percent of its funding from the People's Transportation Plan (PTP) and opened to the public in July of 2012.
