INTEGRATION OF PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION MODES IN METROPOLITAN DADE COUNTY, FLORIDA
This paper describes the regional approach utilized by Metropolitan Dade County, Florida, in developing its unified transportation system which, when fully implemented, will consist of an elevated, conventional rail system; a feeder bus system; and an elevated downtown people mover system. The characteristics of system components, and certain problems encountered, at the policy-making and technical levels, in providing for their full integration are outlined. Emphasis is placed on difficulties due to technological differences of the fully automated DPM system and the conventional heavy rail rapid transit system presently under construction in Dade County.
