Miami-Dade Transit not only operates in Miami, but also operates in the Keys as well. The 301 Monroe Express runs from Florida City to the Marathon Key, although most buses end as Islamorada, with a couple at Tavernier. It is contracted to America's Transportation (also known as Safeguard America) and utilizes MCI D4500 that formerly operated for GO Transit of Toronto.

That should go from Dadeland South to Key West.

Me thinks so as well.

But luckily, there is still a shuttle run by Key West Transit that runs from Marathon to Key West (pay no attention to the destination sign).

P3 Bulletin announced today that three consortia had submitted RFQ docs to build the Miami Beach LRT/Streetcar.

The details are behind a paywall. Any one have an open source link to who these companies might be? I can't find anything online.

Hopefully the one with Alstom wins, and hopefully Alstom will have had a big say in it and will have it built to its full potential.

To my knowledge, Alstom has not won a Citadis project yet in the U.S.

Ottawa is their only win thus far in North America though they started marketing the product three years ago.

They have a very strong consortium though, but as with every project these days it will come down to price.

Alstom also designs and constructs infrastructure.

bus service to the zoo was discontinued effective 2016.06.19.

The zoo was previously served by bus 252 (Coral Reef MAX), which made a deviation from its regular route on Coral Reef Drive/SW 152 St. It may still be possible to access the zoo by getting off the bus and walking down SW 124 Ave. It's about a 25-minute walk down a palm-lined pedestrian pathway.

The bus was photographed by Google Maps last year at the intersection of SW 124 Ave and SW 152 St. It's not clear why the zoo deviation has been discontinued, but it's likely due to low-ridership reasons. The zoo is in a remote auto-centric part of the far southwest suburbs of Miami.

Miami Beach votes to negotiate light rail contract with French firm



City Manager Jimmy Morales will now negotiate an interim agreement with Alstom

Morales could move to second- and third-ranked teams if negotiations fall through with Alstom

City decided not to compare prices from all three at the same time in order to move faster
In Miami Beach’s fast-moving process to build an estimated $380 million light rail loop in South Beach, city commissioners voted to negotiate an interim agreement with the French rail company that sparked the bidding process almost a year ago.

The decision was the city’s biggest step yet toward building a local modern streetcar system that Beach officials want to see break ground within four years.

Alstom, as part of a consortium of firms, submitted an unsolicited proposal last year to build a local streetcar system that would be one-third of a future rail system that would connect to downtown Miami. The city used that proposal as the basis for a bidding process that attracted Alstom and two other teams who competed on the basis of their designs and technologies for a streetcar — not the price.

Horrible decision, Citadis trams are the worst pseudo modern trams on the market, with their unchangeable 25 meter curve radius, completely rigid bogies destroying tracks and squealing constantly. Pseudo 100% low floor when all the seats are on huge podiums. APS ground level power supply also a stupid expensive toy which Miami doesn't need at all. Also it limits the speed to 50 km/h.

The people who make such decisions have no idea about technical stuff of trams unfortunately.

Some of those issues should be examined, however, the 50km/h will not be an issue in this case. I doubt it will ever get to that at normal operation in this area of the city. Also, turning radius will not be an issue as the tracks run basically on a straight line.

You're forgetting that they are planning this loop as a first phase. Plan is to extend the line over the causeway to downtown Miami. And how are turning radii not important when it's specifically a loop configuration.

Turning radius is always the main thing cause with a standart tramway line is planned with 25 meter radius. If there is needed at some point lower then the cars should be able to handle them.

Alstom always plans the tram lines only compatible to the tram they themselves produce that no other supplier wins another tender or so.

Choosing French consortium is the worst thing Miami ever did, French do not have experience and what they have is unchangable unadaptable tram family Citadis over 16 years.
