In 2013, City staff retained the services of a consultant to conduct a study with the objective to assist establishing a City of Miami Gardens Bus Circulator Pilot Program.
It was recommended that the City pilot an east and west route, and use a traditional rubber-tired trolley and hire an outside contractor to operate the services. Thereafter, City staff met with Miami-Dade County Transit to negotiate an Interlocal Agreement to authorize the City to provide public transportation services for the operation of the bus circulator. The City Council approved the aforementioned interlocal agreement on April 23, 2014 (Resolution No. 2014-062-2040); subsequently, Miami-Dade County approved it in October, 2014; thereby, introducing The City of Miami Gardens Express!
During the pilot program, we will start off with 2 buses. The Miami Gardens Express has pre-determined stops that conveniently stop at key points of interests and local roads to supplement Miami Dade County’s current transit system throughout the city.
