Transportation in a Growing Metropolis Perspectives from Miami-Dade

Los Angeles12+ MillionNew York18+ Million

2Miami Urbanized Area5.5 million people and growing4th largest urbanized area in the US2


Miami Gateway to the AmericasInternational logistic hubPortMiami ability to accommodate post-Panamax ships. Cruise ship capital of the world.MIA largest international air cargo airport in the country. Non-stop flight service to over 75 Latin American citiesEight of the ten top export markets are in Latin America led by Brazil, Venezuela and Colombia 3

Canadian Connection Canada is Floridas top export market Conduit between Canada and Latin AmericaOver 450,000 Canadians Snowbirds spend a 1-6 months in Florida. CanadaFest (Hollywood) attracts 150,000 persons Canada is the largest segment of international tourism market with 3.7 million visitors (2013)About 46% of these visitors come to South FloridaCanadians constitute 40% of all tourism spendingCanadians make up 7% of home sales in South Florida


Planning for the Next 25 Years5

People discussion:Aging populationStrong tourist and immigrant populationYounger generation does not want to driveResidents want a shorter commute tripResidents want to spend less $$ on transportation costsThe system should be safe and comfortable, convenient, easy to navigate, and get people where they need to goOverall residents want more options specifically regional transit for work, school, entertainment, errands & recreation


How We Travel Today?

Metromover System Urban circulator system Fare free21 stations4.4 milesThree (3) routesInner LoopOmni LoopBrickell LoopAverage daily ridership 32,000Largest urban automated people mover system in U.S.


We targeted 7 stations for our sampling survey. Again, this was a one day effort and we focused the OD information by zone. That allowed us to capture information from high-ridership stations and understand the trip patterns for Metromover patrons.

The final survey took 30 45 seconds and we mentioned only 8 questions at the start. Setting these expectations early improved the responsiveness. Over 75% of the people asked completed the surveys.

In addition, comparing the surveys collected against the ridership we had a great intercept and capture rate for the sampling survey.

Details if Needed:Results of surveyed population:

Last Years Average February Weekday Ridership = 32,741Last Years February Average Weekday Ridership at Surveyed Stations = 22,859 boardings

Intercepted 1,193 riders = captured 3.6% of all riders; 5.0% of surveyed stations

People that took survey 898 people = 2.7% of all riders; 3.9% of surveyed stations

Metromover System Expansion Plan

Significant downtown growth200,000 Residents190,000 employeesRider survey conducted1/3 of riders use system 6 to 7 days a weekOnly 27% of total are work tripsLargest percentage remains in zone (50%)Ridership doubled since 199916

It is very interesting that 50% of the activity remains within the south zone.16

Metromover Expansion Master Plan


From the screening of the alternatives we came up with an overall Metromover Master Plan representing the ultimate vision for the expansion of the system. The Master Plan adds 5.8 miles of guideway to the current 4.4 mile Metromover system. This results in a total system length of 10.2 miles making Metromover the largest urban APM system in the US.

The corresponding order of magnitude cost estimate for implementing the Master Plan is estimated at $1.9B with an additional O&M of $42.6M per year based on the additional guideway length added to the system.

Todays Premium Transit System

Our VisionaryPremium Transit SystemRegional Transit Vision26

Our existing system is a good start, but the Vision attempts to connect the regional places of interest through a hub system that was classified for the region:Mega Gateway HubLargest CBD per County and/orGreater than 25,000 employeesGateway Hub15,000 employees - 25,000 employeesAnchor HubUp to 15,000 employeesLocated at intersection of 2 regional corridorsAt least 50% commute more than 10 milesEducation HubMajor education institutions/campuses

The system is comprosed of regional rail, express bus and enhanced bus.

This vision was the baseline for the regions long range planning efforts26
