We must have first class public transportation to encourage people to get out of their cars. I have previously supported a mass transit plan that would connect Miami and Miami Beach. I opposed a plan, however, for a very expensive inner-city train in South Beach which did not connect to Miami or any other part of Miami Beach. Instead, I will push plans forward that will connect all of Miami Beach and also connect us to the mainland. In exploring alternative mass transit options, we need to thoroughly explore what other communities have successfully done to guide the way to solutions. Some ideas include expansion of trolley service and more express buses to a major area such as downtown and the Miami International Airport.
