Projects: Miami Central Station
Truth be told, South Floridians love their cars. It's all about the freedom, convenience and keeping up the pace; we want door to door access and the ability to make multiple stops along the way. Sometimes there is no other choice to get to our destination; our community and activities centers are expanse.
The dilemma is that traffic is increasing more and more each day and no matter how many new lanes are added to our highways or what time of day we choose to drive, unless we start using public transportation, there will be no relief.
When the Miami Intermodal Center (MIC) Program was conceived in the late 1980s, it was precisely created to address needs this region faces today: Providing connectivity for residents and visitors of Miami-Dade County and the South Florida region, where none existed, between the transportation systems in Palm Beach, Fort Lauderdale, Miami, and the Florida Keys, as well as decongesting area roadways.
The Miami Central Station is designed to provide transportation choices and connections this community never had before. In essence, it will set the stage for the area's public transportation systems to come together and create one efficient and seamless regional transportation system.
The choices are there when you need them and they are there when you choose to use them. When you need reliable transportation to the airport, when you don't want to drive into Downtown, or when you want to save time and money traveling long distances, there is an alternative. The choice is yours.
Take a moment to look through all the transportation connections the MIC will provide.
