MIAMI'S INTERMODAL CENTER WILL BRING BUS, RAIL AND PEOPLEMOVERS UNDER ONE ROOF

The Miami Intermodal Center (MIC) will bring bus, rail and peoplemovers under one roof, and this article looks at the projects cause, planning, execution and future. The article begins with a look at the congestion issues of the present and the future in the Miami area and the major partners responsible for envisioning the intermodal center, including the Florida Department of Transportation, Miami-Dade County Government, South Florida Regional Transit Authority, the Miami-Dade Expressway Authority, and the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). Coordination issues among agencies are discussed. Funding is also addressed, with focus given to federal initiatives such as ISTEA in 1991 that will bring the MIC to life. Another section looks at forecasted growth in the Miami area. The article concludes with a look at more intermodal stations throughout the country, such as in Anchorage and Baltimore.
