Take Uber express to the next level
Have a subscription based 3 ride sharing platform for daily work trips. Car sharing in the neighborhood and downtown, busses on the highways
Create in-neighborhood rutes with smaller vehicles (mini vans large SUV's) who collect passengers and bring them to a larger more excessible intersection. Over there, have busses bring them to downtown Miami, where their will be smaller vehicles drop them off at their exact locations.
The busses should have access to HOV Lanes on the highways to incourage commuters to use the system, and to make the commute faster for everyone.
This way the expressways/ highways will have less regular car traffic and more busses and the local traffic downtown will have less busses, and also not really any increase in cars because this would all be based on a ride sharing platform.
So I'm bullet points to simplify the process:
- 7:00-7:05 get picked up, dropped off by 7:15 at a local bus pickup (an accessible intersection near a highway)
- 7:20 bus leaves to downtown.
-7:25-40 (dependent on distance in Miami) dropped off at car park off the highway where a vehicle is waiting to take you to your place of work.
-7:30-7:55 dropped off at the corner or at the entrance to work.
Advantages to this plan:
1 - less people using personal vehicles to get to work.
2 - cheaper than Uber pool.
3 - less walking than busses.
4 - less busses in the small roads downtown, which make wide turns and in general hold up traffic downtown.
