Renderings Show Elevated People Mover From Midtown To South Beach After It Is Selected As ‘Preferred Alternative’

A study has determined that a people mover is the best mode for a transit system to connect Miami Beach with mainland Miami.

The people mover would run from South Beach to downtown Miami, and continue north through Midtown Miami to the Design District.

The study was revealed at a Citizens’ Independent Transportation Trust meeting last week and uploaded by board member Eli Stiers (the full report is below).

Service could begin in 2030, according to a schedule included in the study. The reason for the lengthy process: it could take five years to apply for and gain approval for federal funding.

Miami-Dade has received an unsolicited proposal from Genting to build a monorail system on the route, in a process that wouldn’t need federal funding and completed much quicker. The county is now opening a bidding process to allow for competitors to submit alternatives.

Yes, there has to be a way to expedite this. Ten years to get this done is not what the citizens imagined it would take. How many years have the people of MiamiDade been paying that 1/2 cent/penny gas tax?

The best way to expedite it would have been to start 25 years ago when its need first became obvious. It would have been done 5 years ago in that case.

So, as he/she suggested before you knocked it down…if ours can be built, as Jacksonville’s was in 5 years, but people here ride it…wouldn’t that be a good thing? We are talking about the length of time it would take to build, not the ridership, correct?

Anonymous

The skyway is free to ride. No income means it can only operate at a loss, just like the metromover. However, public transport brings external benefits to the economy as a whole, and the bigger picture is what we need to look at when deciding if a new train is “profitable”.

Anonymous

This is what politicians and acedemics say when they have a stupid idea, “Oh…but you must calculate the externalities”.

Sounds brilliant.

The best way to get from Miami to Miami Beach is an Uber, Taxi, or other car for hire service, the second best way is your own car.
If you are unable to pay for either of those, the next best way is one of the hundreds of buses that traverse the causeways.

The next best way is walk.

Then, if you want to pay a BILLION and a half dollars, you can have a little Metromover thing that people will only use reluctantly.

BRT is a lot cheaper and faster to implement. You could easily phase in the improvements, even start right away with upgrades to buses and shelters.

A two-way BRT loop on both the MacArthur Causeway and 195 could connect Miami Central, the beach, the Design District and Wynwood. It’d immediately attract tourists, workers and thousands of locals. Sections could be separated from the rest of traffic in phases, so it gets faster and more useful every year.

The Metromover is an automated system, meaning, it doesn’t require a human to drive it and the rail cars don’t use engines. Therefore, it’s much cheaper to operate.

All these bicycle people need to start paying significant registration fees and some kind of taxes to help pay for their bike lanes they demand. Cars pay registration and gas taxes.

CEC

Elevated is, of course, the only way to go in the long run; and the system should be an extension of the metro-rail to solve the time to destination problem; an addition to the metro-rail will be more expensive in the short run, but in the long run it will be cheaper because it will be permanent. Start it now, even if you can only finance one mile. If the county doesn’t start until the whole system is financed, it will never get constructed. Once work begins and the public sees some action, financing can be more easily done on a piece-by-piece basis. The important thing is to “get the show on the road”.

In my opinion metrorail should be used to connect the whole county… so in this instance a metrorail should be built down the MacArthur to 5th ave and then Miami Beach should built a light rail system that connects north, mid and south beach. And then in the future if a northeast metro line ever gets built another metro line could connect that with mid beach via the Julia Tuttle. Everyone has to remember that mass transit expansion isn’t just for today’s needs but for the future growth of Dade county which isn’t stopping anytime soon

Geez Miami has a bunch of lazyass people.

And the problem is?

Bitbang3r

Once the guideway is built, there’s nothing that says they can’t reconfigure it to have three “lines”:

1. Downtown Inner Loop, exactly the way it is now.

2. Midtown – runs from Brickell to Midtown along present-day Brickell, Omni, and Outer loop tracks.

3. SoBe – runs from South Beach to Brickell along present-day Omni, Brickell, and Outer loop tracks.

This would make SoBe-Brickell and SoBe-downtown transfer-free, Midtown-SoBe a single cross-platform transfer, Metrorail-SoBe (including Airport-SoBe) a single transfer at Gov’t Center, and Virgin/Brightline-SoBe a single transfer as well.

Requiring a transfer for MIA-SoBe isn’t ideal, but it certainly wouldn’t be deal-killing.

Also, keep in mind that “speed” isn’t an absolute number or limit. Today’s Metromover speeds are constrained mostly by track geometry (tight corners) and need to minimize acceleration and deceleration for passenger safety & comfort. If the vehicle had a straight mile to smoothly speed up and slow down along the causeway, it could almost certainly go quite a bit faster along the stretch (probably, without requiring any changes besides software).

Anonymous

BRT would have been cheaper, faster to implement, and have better travel times. Metromover is beyond sluggish for these distances. Take an existing lane from the roads, put dividers up, and make it bus only with strategically placed stops and higher frequency than all the other buses. We could literally have BRT operational within months for a fraction of the cost. This is a ridiculous mode for connecting two of the densest parts of the county. This is the heart of the 8th largest metro area, not Disney World.

Please tell me what the county actually invests in. We know it’s not rail. They’re too cheap to give us rail and it’ll take too long. BRT is a success in major cities across the US and the globe. I implore you to do your research and look at the cost of rail per mile in the US and then let me know where the county will come up with that cash. Don’t forget they already misspent BILLIONS meant to expand metrorail on maintenance. If I’m stuck in the 50s, you must be stuck under a rock. Read the news, do your homework, and curb your expectations.

I see.. you don’t keep up with the times. Billions of have been spent expending freeways in this county and that’s a fact. We have buses. More buses is not the answer. The MetroMover is an automated system therefore it doesn’t rely on some person who doesn’t feel like coming to work to operate it like a bus does. Are you a bus driver?

Wakeup to the 2000’s and leave that archaic way of doing things in the past.

Anonymous

Google what happened to the half penny tax. I don’t trust the county to collect more money and use it correctly for rail. BRT would utilize the existing road network therefore costing less than rail and ready to implement in less than a year. If you want to wait forever for a pathetic monorail to cross the bay, go for it. I’m done arguing with someone who thinks rail is any newer or better than a bus. Get over yourself, and fix your grammar if you’re going to act like you’re better than someone with a logical suggestion.

Buses would be a good short term solution, easy and cheap to implement (could be done by just putting up some cones to dedicate a lane for buses on the bridge). But in the long term, rail is the way to go. The only problem is, if county does the short term decision, they’ll call it a day for the next 30 years after that.

You have to be kidding about the Metromover being an “automated system”. Automated cars maybe.
The last time my Metromover car “automatically” slammed on the brakes, it was over the Miami River. A lot of older people hit the floor. And we all pressed the button to eventually hear someone answer…he was oblivious to the stoppage. We waited 15 minutes half way between the south and north bank of the river (great view for me, but a lot of people were freaking out). A supervisor walked on the tracks, opened the door and asked if everyone was alright. After no major injuries, the supervisor walked BACK across the bridge to retrieve a plastic bag that had gotten wrapped around the stantion and was blowing into the path.
BACK is a key word.
The “Automatic” Metromover slammed on the brakes AFTER it blew through the plastic bag. sigh.
By the time this was over, there were 6 Metro-Dade employees, the Brickell System was shut down in the middle of the business day, and several elderly people got rocked.
