This is an exciting item that I have been working on. It is presently operating in several Miami-Dade County Municipalities. I believe it is time to bring it to Palmetto Bay.
I am proud to sponsor this item and bring it to the Village Council after investigating the program and initiating negotiations with the provider. We are also working to obtain a grant to cover a substantial portion of the cost for the first few years. It can be found on the current agenda [(CLICK HERE) to view the full agenda - warning large download] - it is found on pages 123-124, item 5. A. (iii).
A bus service that residents can’t get enough of? It’s happening in Miami, by ROB WILE
I have been in discussion with this group for some time (not just "sponsoring a reso") - I believe it is now ready to bring before the village council in order for me to get everyone on board (literally).

We set up the geographical jurisdiction through negotiation. It won't take you far out of the area, but you can go anywhere within that defined area - we can have it take you to the bus lanes, to the Falls Shopping Center, to any restaurant in Palmetto Bay, to any park, friend's house, village hall. People could take it to go from home to any church within the defined area, to any village park or facility. We would use it to get to places where parking is an issue such as the village picnic or 4th of July event. Its door to door service.
Where do you want to go?
This is an exciting opportunity.
