Improving Miami-dade traffic and transportation
An excellent way of reducing traffic on the streets and highways would be an improvement to public transportation.
I propose isolating lanes on both the expressways and the main roads (e.g. Biscayne Blvd) dedicated solely to metro buses; similar to that on US1 south of dadeland. This will ensure the flow of the buses and thus enticing others to ride the bus vs driving for various reasons; the sake of convenience, saving money, and reducing emissions. The real reason most choose to drive is due to the fact that the the buses currently are extremely unreliable and the speed of the commute is dependent on the amount of traffic encountered and on the driver’s ability to navigate their way through traffic. Both these factors could be eliminated by having a dedicated lane. After all, the majority of commuters are headed to the same locations, downtown/Brickell, coral gables, aventura all coming from north and south.
