The Strategic Miami Area Rapid Transit (SMART) Plan is a bold infrastructure investment program of projects that will significantly improve transportation mobility, provide a world-class transit system that will support economic growth and competitiveness in the global arena.  Miami-Dade Mayor Carlos A. Gimenez, along with the Miami-Dade Transportation Planning Organization (TPO) Governing Board, has declared the advancement of the SMART Plan as the top priority for Miami-Dade County, which is strongly supported by public and private sector partners, residents, and other elected officials.  The overall project affects 1.7 million residents and 855,000 employees
 
The SMART Plan will expand transit options in Miami-Dade County along six (6) critical corridors that are linked to local, regional, national, and global economic markets, as highlighted below. Another critical component of the SMART Plan will be a network of Express Buses, known as Bus Express Rapid Transit (BERT), which will connect the SMART rapid transit corridors on limited access facilities, promoting the active expansion of South Florida’s Express Lanes network with the implementation of six (6) identified BERT express lane concepts. This innovative approach effectively expands the reach of transit in Miami-Dade County and beyond.

Possible Modes:

• Bus Rapid Transit (BRT)
 
• Light Rail Transit (LRT)
 
• Heavy Rail Transit (HRT)
 
• Metrorail at-grade (powered by overhead lines), on exclusive lanes.
