We have a bright future ahead; the piece to complete the puzzle is mass transportation.

But the video boasts about the city’s amazing transportation

It is promoting mostly just the Arsht and south to Brickell which in that case mass transit is pretty damn good if you’re just staying within that area.

So if you’re staying within one small, essentially walkable, loop, the public transportation is good? Got it.

Yes, for that 1 x 3 mile area, which is what the DDA is promoting, the mass transit is good. If this were and ad for the city of Miami or anywhere outside of said area then it would be an erroneous claim.

Thought I also saw something from the Design District, but none of those silly areas matter, right?

Only watched it once but if that’s the case be up in arms about that then as the Design District isn’t part of the DDA and its being past off as such.

I don’t see how Design District can be considered DDA when that stands for Downtown Development Authority. That would mean Midtown isn’t Midtown and is Downtown as it’s between Downtown and Design District.

Agreed. Downtown should be Downtown/Brickell…maybe Omni. The rest are adjacent neighborhood to the center

Greater Downtown is officially from the Rickenbacker CSWY to the Design District. The DDA is just Brickell, CBD and A&E

Midtown is a neighborhood within Greater Downtown Miami.

Its one thing to have the most developed transit system in Florida, with competition only from Tampa and Jacksonville. How about we try to have the most developed transit system in the South East? Get Baylink done and extend the line!

It’s going to happen, eventually. Things are changing now and it’s only the silly and fossilized politicians who are behind the curve on the transportation issue. Just recently South Miami-Dade officials sent word to the county government that they are not interested in the idiotic “bus rapid transit” proposal that was put forth by Miami-Dade politicians in their still-trying-to-avoid-rail mindset.

This is what is happening now and in the near future you will see such things as the Baylink finally come to fruition, most likely as the result of a public-private partnership (PPP) and because more and more in the local populace are now demanding vastly improved and increased rail public transit, as was promised way back in 2002.
