Did you get a chance to attend any of the Miami Art Week events last week? The various satellite fairs and smaller events complemented the main event: Art Basel in Miami Beach. While Art Week is a boon for retailers, tourism, and the local economy, one of the major concerns was how to deal with the increased amount of traffic, especially concerning this year because of the Venetian Causeway closure.
To alleviate the surge in traffic, both Miami and Miami Beach plus Miami-Dade County Transit and private interests teamed up to devise a solution to combat potential traffic woes, a solution that turned out to be a success that bodes well for any future major city events. Miami Art Week attendees were given the option of using free connected transit options to get to and from the various events going on in Miami and Miami Beach, resulting in an efficiently robust and effective solution using current infrastructure to address traffic concerns during some of the most congested times.
A highlight of this transportation alliance was the Miami-Dade Art Express, a free shuttle transporting people from the Design District, Wynwood, and Midtown to Miami Beach every twenty minutes. There was no issue with overcrowding and the buses consistently arrived on time. In fact, the ride proved to be faster than using a car.
Considering the success of the Art Express, it may be making another appearance during next year’s Miami Art Week, and could signal the beginning of other worthwhile transportation solutions between the two cities.
