Now let’s get Tri-Rail to go downtown. Fingers crossed after years of incompetence

Totally agree. This delay has been a huge disappointment. This link would do more to i95 traffic than anything else.

This is great, Miami is making small incremental improvements towards it transit infrastructure.

A parking garage at a transit station is FAR from “Great” nor is it an “incremental” improvement.

golden glades was meant to be a park and ride location and the past surface lot was at capacity. Even in the northeast commuters have the location to drive to a station and take rail or bus to the urban core.

That’s all fine and dandy but let’s call a spade a spade.

A parking Garage at an existing P&R is not “Great” nor should it be seen as an incremental improvement. That’s just silly.

The lake to the south surrounding by Australian pines, and some of the surrounding old garden apartment complexes would be great candidates for redevelopment into TOD

Its a more of a monument to memorialize the unknown bicyclist who die on our streets.

I’m gonna go out on a limb and guess its for people to park and lock up their bicycles

That would be a good service. However, do they charge a fee for that service? I hope that they are charging (credit card insert/ app) for that service. Not overcharge, but at fee sufficient to pay the costs for that service.

The bicycle parking is for people to lock up their bike after they arrive and realise that it is physically impossible to bike out of the interchange.

Hopefully possibility of future rail expansion here

That would be Hialeah Market Station, where there’s a rail spur that goes into Kendall, assuming some moron didn’t let it be abandoned for bike paths.

Better use would be to use the Miami Airport station as the terminus for the homestead line. There’s room for the extra line on the east end of the station that was originally supposed to be for high speed rail. The rail line is already there with the curve connecting to the homestead line. But it’ll end up a bike path or something stupid

Too bad there is no designated area for uber/lyft pickup and dropoff. The drivers enter the station and a rent-a-cop on a golf cart tells them to not enter the bus terminal. Leaving a confused driver looking around to see if a rider is paying attention and raises their hand calling them.

Another piece of pork for the transit mafia

Another empty transit installation. This is the result of pay for play lobbying
