Park N' Go will be an easy way to lessen traffic of cars in Miami dade county. Simply build parking garage structures and parking lots with a shuttle system; where tourists, locals, and neighboring county's can park their car and ride a shuttle to visit heavily traveled areas like Miami beach. The shuttle system will be battery or solar powered shuttle vehicles. This will allow people to travel throughout Miami Dade county and beaches more safer, easier, faster, and efficently. This will make it easy to access the Miami Dade area and beaches without worrying about traiffic or PARKING, and also can save gas or fuel. Park N' Go will also be environment friendly and the fleet of shuttles will be electric run by lithium battery or solar power. The shuttle vehicles should be customized with a florida theme: such as palms trees, or oranges. Park N' go garages and lots should be built near and around popular locations throughout Miami Dade county and beaches. Alton road, Keybiscane, Dolphin Statium, South Beach, Downtown Miami ect... The cost for a ride should based similar to the Miami Dade public transit cost. Tourists, locals, and neighboring county's will want to go and visit Miami and the beaches because parking and traiffic will not be an issue.

Funding Request

  • No funding is required

Describe how you would pilot your idea (1000 characters)

PARK N' GO parking will be free, so there will be no fee to park the only fee you are paying is the bus fee. The fee for the bus should be similar to the cost of public transit. Also there can be membership options to ride to PARK N' GO all year. The buses will be run off solar power or lithium battery, so the cost to run will be efficient and economically safe. This solution will sky rocket because people will enjoy saving money and time riding PARK N' GO buses.

For the success of my pilot it would be based on membership renewal and customer service feed back. The more that people use PARK N' GO they will find that the membership will easier to use and save time. Everyone will want to visit Miami Dade county and beaches because PARK N' GO enables safe traveling around town.

Hey Rachel Powell ! I am Matteo, one of the Community Facilitators here,
Just wanted to say this is a great idea to help people move from parking to desired location.
Also, don't forget to ask for funding as this phase is ending on Monday 17th!
Great idea!
