Full description

By changing the school hours from early hours to 10 a.m. there would be less traffic during rush hour and thee will be less school zone areas. Provide more school mini buses to pick kids from home so parents can go to their jobs at regular hours 9-5. Change the work hours of all Miami Dade and State employees. This is a big group of drivers that contribute about 65% of traffic during rush hour. Two shifts would help to reduce traffic one starting at 6:30 a.m. and another at 11:00 a.m. Last add more express lanes in every freeway. This should reduce traffic a lot in a very economical way for the city without having to expend millions in trains, buses and more.

Hey Daniel Alsina  thanks for posting!!. I'm Matteo, one of the facilitators here in the community. Just wanted to remind you that we are not yet in the solution phase as we are still in the exploration phase, where we look at issues, problems, experiences and ways other places are solving these.
That is a great fact :
"All Miami Dade and State employees","This is a big group of drivers that contribute about 65% of traffic during rush hour". Could you please share the source of that so that it sparks more innovation from data like that?
Also, I see that you identify a transit issue in the times stablished by companies or society to drive to work on their daily commute, what is your experience in this topic, what are your pain points on this issue?
Please do tell us about your issues, problems, experiences!
