Stop Transit Cuts
The proposed 2017-2018 budget called for significant cuts to Miami-Dade County transit services. The results would have been reduced service hours, route eliminations, poorer frequencies, and compromised maintenance at a time when increased and improved transit service was critical.
Transit Alliance led a campaign against the proposed budget cuts by mobilizing citizens, building political pressure, and raising awareness. Thanks to our advocacy, the county funded the transit system by $15 million, restoring Metrorail headways and preventing further cuts to the bus system.
