For your sake Gimenez, I hope you're keeping informed and up to date!

Pop Quiz: We've got lots of miles of bus routes in , but how many miles of dedicated bus lanes do we have in total?
More on why dedicated lanes matter in week 4 of Where's My Bus: https://transitalliance.miami/campaigns/where-s-my-bus/route-network#1 https://transitalliance.miami/campaigns/where-s-my-bus/route-network#1

Thanks: Adam Old Buses without dedicated lanes are fish without fins — they can't be faster than the current. 

In Miami, on-street bus lanes are virtually non-existent, trapping buses in the same traffic transit riders sought to avoid.  Only one corridor features dedicated lanes - the South-Dade Transitway. 

It successfully serves ~ 2.9 million trips/year. 

However, many corridors match and exceed this ridership, but lack any dedicated lanes.  

Which corridors? — 

Routes to Miami Beach (via the MacArthur) serve ~ 5.1 million trips/year — 

Routes along Flagler St. serve ~ 4 million trips/year — 

Routes along Biscayne Blvd. serve ~ 3.1 million trips/year — 

Routes along NW 7th Ave serve ~ 2.8 million trips/year
