• MOVING MIAMI BEACH FORWARD

    LightRail-Web-Banner

    The City of Miami Beach is assessing the feasibility of bringing light rail/modern streetcars to South Beach that would ultimately connect to Downtown Miami. This project aims to substantially ease traffic congestion, link key points of interest, connect people with jobs and opportunities, reduce air pollution and greenhouse gas emissions and save thousands of dollars in commuting and parking costs for residents and visitors.  

    Electrically-powered, the proposed rail project is planned to be off-wire and operate in a dedicated travel lane, in order to ensure efficient service, permanence, and solidifying it as a community asset for many years to come. In addition to the various mobility benefits, light rail/modern streetcars have a stellar track record for being a catalyst of positive urban change by revitalizing neighborhoods and business districts. 

    The city has expedited the solicitation of bids to design, build, finance, operate, and maintain a proposed Miami Beach rail project, while working in strong partnership with the Miami-Dade Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO), the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT), Miami-Dade Transit (MDT) and the City of Miami as part of the ongoing Beach Corridor Transit Connection Project. 

    This initiative is a crucial component to the success and advancement of this vibrant community, and is also being closely coordinated with the city’s resiliency team. We encourage you to read more about this project in the Frequently Asked Questions section and welcome your feedback.
