Trolley System Coming to Miami
The proposed system would include six routes that would stretch from Brickell to the western most portions of the city, and would connect with the existing Metrorail, Metromover, and bus system.
"It's going to add a new method of transportation for the city and it should eliminate some of the traffic congestion," Mark Levitt, president of LSF Shuttle, the company chosen to possibly build and operate the system, told Open Media.
Fares aren't set yet, but the first few months of the system will be free. Some routes are expected to begin operating by the end of the year.
LSF Shuttle also operates a Trolley system in Broward County.
Here's the proposed Trolley routes. More details can be found here.
Though, the trolleys won't run on tracks, and will basically be fancy looking buses subjected to the same traffic woes as the current county bus system.
