Discussions regarding a potential light rail system in Miami are underway once again

by Sep Niakan | February 13, 2014

As part of the renewed discussion, potential routes were discussed publicly for the first time.

While Miami Mayor Tomás Regalado and Miami-Dade Mayor Carlos Gimenez have stated a preference for the rail to transect the MacArthur Causeway, transportation director of Miami Beach, José González, has reiterated that Miami Beach has not yet determined a route.

Current discussions were revived during a meeting regarding the Beach Corridor Transit Connection Study project. The $325,000 project study, which is funded by several state agencies and local governments, has been focused on the development of a light rail system that will potentially cross Biscayne Bay through the MacArthur Causeway.
