73 neighbors want to expand Metrorail to improve transit in Miami-Dade County.

Expanding the Metrorail with a westward route would provide so many additional neighborhoods with access to transit, would help relieve traffic stress along a major Miami corridor, and will encourage the commuters at our largest commuter school to use alternative transportation.

"Miami-Dade can’t afford to build more rail lines and should invest millions in transit dollars creating modernized express bus systems running north and south, Mayor Carlos Gimenez said.

“I look at this as part of my job: Be realistic, bring us down to earth,” Gimenez told members of a county transportation board. “I know there’s going to be push back. I know there’s going to be a lot of people who have different ideas about what we should do. But we’ve been looking at this for some time. And these numbers are real.”

We can't afford NOT to extend MetroRail. The broken promise has been delayed long enough. BRT is not the answer for Miami-Dade county. In fact, BayLink bit.ly/rrcFP6 needs to be implemented first since it would connect MIA and the downtown MetroRail/MetroMover stations, making it easy for tourists (who fund the main economic engine here) and locals to get around without the use of a car on roads already too jammed to hold them.

Gimenez' view on this topic is outrageous, especially hypocritical given his reelection campaign just recently promised MetroRail expansion! Agree with BayLink and MetroRail extensions, too many studies & wasting too much time --- implement already!

It's simple: Any mayor candidate who offers to fix transit will be popular. executing is a different matter. I propose removing the half penny for transportation altogether. al while we're at it, take away thither half penny for "affordable housing" both corruption swamps.
