RCAP Database | Sustainable Communities and Transportation Planning: SP-29

Increase transit ridership by providing premium transit service on targeted regional corridors. Examples of successful routes include the I-95 Express bus service and “The Flyer” route from Miami International Airport to Miami Beach. The goal of these routes is to bring people who might otherwise drive to work (known as “choice riders”) from residential areas to regional centers of employment. Agencies should review levels of service policies and service standards and modify as necessary to prioritize increasing services along corridors with dense land use. Improve quality of service by continuing to monitor and address safety and performance.
