TransitCenter

Transit in Miami is in shambles. Bus service is increasingly slow and unreliable and bus ridership is plunging in response. While use of Miami-Dade County’s lone rapid rail line has not fallen as drastically, transit officials are barely able to track their own service- including numerous missed train runs per day. Despite this, county officials endlessly debate where to build expensive new rail lines, with barely a nod to the transit system’s obvious problems.

Enter Transit Alliance Miami. In just two years, the organization has developed data to illustrate the depth of Miami-Dade’s transit crisis and has started to develop an agenda to take the region forward. It begins with reversing the decline in today’s bus system, not with billions for new rail lines that would be delivered to an inept operation. If Miami can fix its transportation institutions and really deliver on the service it already offers, the foundation for future transit expansion will be far more secure.

In 2016, Streetfilms' is producing a number of transportation shorts for TransitCenter

TransitCenter's mission:

We spark innovations and support policies that improve public transportation for riders, businesses and communities. Better urban transit and increased ridership – along with housing affordability, good community design, equitable economic development, and other low-carbon modes of transportation such as walking and biking – are essential ingredients in urban vitality. Improving mobility for all will better the environment and public health through cleaner air and reduced carbon pollution, bolster the economy and increase access to jobs, and contribute to social equity and stronger mixed-use neighborhoods.
