Didn’t you hear? Our great mayor(cough) wants to see us use more Uber. Transit? Who needs that? What we need is more congestion! Let’s make life horrible here!

Yeah, I suppose they don’t care much for bicyclists and pedestrians, and we have seen recently that they may not be that safe *yet*.

Most of the time byciclist don’t respect any transit regulations ( intersection of Brickell Avenue and the entrance of Key Byscaine)
yet they want to be respected all the time!!!! Same for pedestrians, especially on the light on 8st and Brickell Avenue

A Cyclist and a Pedestrian won’t kill a car in a collision.

What a strange question. On par with….WHERE IS THE GRAVITY?

Some people transport themselves by walking. Miami Beach, the Brickell neighborhood, and there are many more examples of that.

Some people transport themselves in cars. You are asking where they are??? Everywhere.

Some people transport themselves in city busses. They are all everywhere.

Let me take an educated guess at what you may be asking and help you clarify.

You mean, “Where is a transportation option that is cool enough for me to ride (you are too hip for a bus), that more successful people than me will pay for AND subsidize the annual operating cost, AND I get to ride $1.25 whenever I want 24 hours a day, 365 days per year.”

What an idiot response from anonymous. Clearly they’ve never lived in a city with functioning public transportation infrastructure. Besides who the fck u think subsidizes all freeway construction thru tolls dumbass! & We still sit in traffic.

Disgusted. #1. I have lived in city with functioning public transit. Miami and NY. But that is immaterial.
#2. Strange question, and not sure how it relates. Gasoline taxes pay for highways and tolls pay for highways.

In response to “Where is the transit?”
Transit is ubiquitous in Miami. Quit whining.

This is great news. I like what I am seeing. I once saw a report on how much the population was going to be in 2020 and they predicted that it would be 2.72 million by then. It is 2017 when this report of the population came in and we are already ahead by a couple of years. That is great as we will continue to see economic growth for the next few years as a result of more people here. It’s predicted we will hit 3 million by the early 2030’s. Let’s see if we can keep the momentum and reach that by 2025!

It’ll hit 3 million in Dade around 2020.

But WHO CARES?! about the population?

Jobs, quality of life, crime, schools, cultural arts, TRANSPORTATION are what matter. And Miami struggles in many of these areas.

I agree. But don’t forget how politics and sociology work. Once there are a lot of people here that demand an improvement to the system, we will get all of that taken care of. Everything is always taken care of once all other options are exhausted.

Except jobs, crime, education, transportation, quality of life etc aren’t new issues…

It will be 3 million people in Miami Dade by 2020 if Amazon Hq2 arrives by the end of this year.

Wishfully, it should mean higher incomes with greater tax revenue to fund… IDK, First World infrastructure including mass transit?

Somebody’s calculations are off. An increase of 253,778 to 2,751,796 means 2010 population was 2,498,018.
The percentage increase is 253,778 / 2,498,018 = 10.16%
