MIAMI SURFACE SHUTTLE SERVICES: FEASIBILITY STUDY FOR TRANSIT CIRCULATOR SERVICES IN DOWNTOWN MIAMI, BRICKELL, OVERTON, AND AIRPORT WEST. FINAL REPORT
The Downtown Development Authority of Miami (DDA) initially expressed its desire to implement shuttle services along Flagler Street and in Bricknell in anticipation of that area's substantial new growth. The Miami-Dade Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) was asked to help fund a study to examine the feasibility of establishing surface shuttle services in the area, and the decision was made to increase the study area by adding the Overton community as well. This report will review each of the sub-areas noted for their potential for supporting shuttle services. Alternative routes and levels of service are presented, along with approximate capital and operating expenses associated with each. The advantages and disadvantages of different types of buses will be examined as well as who might operate the service and where maintenance and storage facilities could be located. Potential sources of funds are also identified.
