Why invest in the park-and-ride when Broward County Transit (BCT) ridership continues to decline despite the County’s growth as other superior options are available such as BCT own TOPS service as well as UBER, LYFT and RIDE SHARE?
While transit ridership in recent years has declined nationwide, Broward to Miami Express bus services and park and ride lots usage continues to grow. This has mainly to do with the commute challenges one faces while traveling from Broward to Miami. With growing congestion, these challenges are expected to increase. Park and rides form one part of the several solutions that FDOT is investigating to provide commute options other than driving alone.
