Where's My Bus Campaign
Granted $25,00 to support our team to ride buses on a daily basis, talk to bus riders, collect their stories and data, and provide them with advocacy support. In addition, this support will allow our team to build a preliminary online tool based on rider experiences and data to support upcoming advocacy efforts during the fall budget hearings.
Just Make it Work: Moving Transit Solutions and Policy Forward in Miami-Dade County
Granted $75,000 to Transit Alliance to change the dominant transit narrative in Miami-Dade County by getting city and county officials, as well as local residents back to basics. A campaign educating these groups on exactly how transit works and what successful transit needs will be critical for bringing about more grounded and realistic conversations and action. Likewise, Transit Alliance Miami (TA Miami) seeks to showcase how relatively simple improvements like increased frequency and reliability in bus service can serve more riders and attract ridership, in lieu of exorbitant spending on massive new rail projects.
Miami Dade Great Streets Demonstration Project
$150,000 for development of short-term projects such as walkability improvements for stops/stations and transit priority street segments throughout Miami-Dade County.
