My first trip to Miami was an interesting one. i was staying in Brickell and needed a SD card reader for my computer. I went out to the bus stop in front of my hotel and used gogle maps to determine the bus I needed. When the trolley showed up I got on. but it wasnt the right bus. When i was told it was free I started to get confused. Why is it free.? Because its going to take me somewhere i don't want to go? The driver and a few passengers could tell i was from out of town and asked me where I was going. I said Target. They argued among themselves for a few minutes about where the closest Target was and how their was Marshall's nearby where you can get good sneakers cheap. Turns out the Trolley was going to get close to the target after all. The Driver ensured me he would get me there. And he did.

Hello James, what a great story!
I am Matteo, one of the Facilitaros in the Miami Challenge.
Let's dig a bit on your experience, how would you change the perception of free that you as a foreigner had? Do you think locals are having that problem too?

Please contribute to this idea if you are a local having the same perception or a different one and could build on top of this post!
