Investing in mobility solutions is vital for enhancing the quality of life in Miami, enabling efficient and equitable access to employment, education, and essential services across the city.


Congestion and limited transit options restrict efficient city movement.


Congestion has worsened materially in Miami, with a 30 percent increase in the number of annual hours lost in traffic between 2019 and 2022. Miami now ranks ninth worst in the world on the global traffic scorecard. At the same time, thanks to committed public and civic leaders, crucial transit and mobility investments are being realized. The recent launch of the Better Bus Network and the long-anticipated arrival of Tri-Rail in downtown Miami are important milestones.

MIAMI 2035

Capitalizing on recent momentum is imperative to unlocking further economic growth and expanding opportunities for all residents. Miami’s leaders should move urgently to create the necessary prerequisites to initiate the development of well-planned transit corridors, including Baylink. At least five new major transit corridors will be required to materially improve mobility and form the backbone of a denser housing stock across the county. Expanding rapid transit zones, dynamically optimizing traffic signals, improving compensation for transit workers, and leveraging data to improve experience and increase transparency can also meaningfully contribute to improving mobility in Miami.
