South Dade TransitWay Corridor

The South Dade TransitWay Corridor (South Corridor) is one the six rapid transit corridors of the Strategic Miami Area Rapid Transit (SMART) Plan. The corridor runs 20-miles in length and connects numerous municipalities which represent some of the fastest growing communities in Miami-Dade County. This corridor extends from the Dadeland South Metrorail Station to the SW 344th Street Park-and-Ride/Transit Terminal and provides a mobility connection between the Miami Central Business District and the Village of Pinecrest, the Village of Palmetto Bay, Town of Cutler Bay, City of Homestead, and Florida City.

SMART Plan South Corridor breaks ground 

On June 4, 2021, Miami-Dade County officially broke ground on the all-new South Dade Rapid Transit Project. The groundbreaking is a major step forward for the South Dade TransitWay, one of the six Strategic Miami Area Rapid Transit (SMART) Plan corridors, evaluated to identify a rapid transit service to meet the mobility needs of Miami-Dade County.

On February 2, the County issued Notice to Proceed to the contractor to begin the Design-Build Services for the South Dade Transitway Rapid Transit Project.

FTA allocates $100 million for the South Dade TransitWay
On Friday, May 29, 2020, the Department of Transportation and Public Works received final confirmation from the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) for the County’s funding request of $100 million for the South Corridor Rapid Transit project.

On Thursday, August 30, 2018, the Miami-Dade Transportation Planning Organization (TPO) Governing Board voted on the Locally Preferred Alternative (LPA) for the South Dade TransitWay corridor and selected Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) as the most feasible mode of transportation for this corridor.

Once completed, BRT will provide rail-like travel time, iconic stations, level boarding through all doors, and pre-paid fares for speedy access. BRT will also provide enhanced safety features and other upgrades along dedicated lanes with multi-layered service lines on the TransitWay. 

In order to improve mobility throughout the County, DTPW is also deploying new technologies such as adaptive smart signals and Transit Signal Priority (TSP) controllers. Check out how TSP and Smart Signals are reducing commute time for Metrobus passengers on the TransitWay.
