My friend goes to FIU and I went with her to travel from Boca Raton to Miami and the traffic is absolutely terrible. The congestion is off the charts and it really gets on everbody's nerves. People either need to start carpooling more or find some kind of alternate solution because the traffic will only get worse at this rate.

Hi Danielle Carchman 

I’m Wilda, one of the community facilitators here!

Firstly, how brave if you to have taken a trip with your friend to FIU. I’m sure you had no idea what you signed up for. I have friends who attend both campuses and by far the Modesto campus is a nightmare. The bridge that collapsed a few months ago was supposed to alleviate some of that traffic, but I can only imagine it’s made things worse since the tragedy.

Does your friend travel from Boca to FIU each and every day? Has she tried alternate routes to getting to Miami? Also if you can answer, what other forms of transportation has she taken?

Hello Wilda Previl 

The trips I have taken with her just takes patience and time. She travels from Boca to FIU a few times a week. She usually just takes her own car and does not take any alternate forms of transportation to get to FIU. But she does let friends carpool if needed.

Thanks for replying!
