Miami’s severe traffic problems are no surprise to locals, especially those who commute from the suburbs to Miami’s more densely populated areas like the city center or Miami Beach. Downtown Miami continues to see rapid development, with major projects like the upcoming Brickell City Center and Miami Worldcenter promising to bring even more people to the city and therefore, more drivers.
Miami has some of the worst traffic congestion in the country, and its mass transit system is also one of the worst in the world. With so much development going on and the increase in residents, what should city planners do to ameliorate the Magic City’s ongoing traffic woes?
Though efforts to expand Miami’s public transit like the Metrorail are in consideration as ridership has increased over the past five years, the costs have complicated things. In the meantime, there are events like WHEELS in the works. The five-day event is designed to promote hybrid transportation solutions, such as a fusion of bus, bike and rail trails with modern taxi services available at a low cost, like Lyft or Uber.
Other considerations include synchronizing traffic lights that can determine congestion on a real time basis and water buses. Diesel-electric buses are also in the works. How would you go about fixing Miami’s traffic woes?
