(Miami, FL March 22, 2018) – MIAMI TROLLEY WINS CONGESTION BUSTER AWARD
With more than 5-million boardings in FY16-17, the City of Miami’s Miami Trolley is the winner of the 2018 Congestion Buster Award. The Miami-Dade Transportation Planning Organization (TPO) selects the winner based on the performance of municipal circulators over a three-year period, including total ridership and ridership percentage growth.
Miami Trolley has seen year over year growth since FY13-14. In FY16-17, Miami Trolley gave more than 5 million rides (compared to 2.3 million in FY13-14). The most popular routes in FY16-17 included Little Havana, Coral Way, Allapattah, Biscayne, and Brickell. The Little Havana route more than doubled boardings from FY15-16 to FY16-17. Miami Trolley recently added a Little Haiti route.
“The City of Miami wants residents and visitors to get where they want to go more efficiently. Miami Trolley is a free, convenient option that allows riders to track trolleys using the Miami Trolley app,” said City of Miami Director of Communications Eugene Ramirez.
