Revealed: Miami Beach Streetcar System Map

As the Miami Beach Streetcar moves closer to reality, new details about the project have been pouring in.

At a meeting yesterday (June 16), a committee ranked a team led by Alstom as the top bidder for the project. The full city commission is tentatively scheduled to vote on the rankings in July.

The system is being designed to be as convenient as possible, according to a presentation by the city:

  • There will be dedicated lanes in two directions separating the streetcar from traffic
  • The system will operate nearly around the clock, only closing between 2 and 5:30 AM
  • Streetcars will arrive every 6 to 7.5 minutes
  • No ugly overhead wires, and compatible with system connecting to mainland
