SOUTHEAST FLORIDA INVENTORY OF TRANSIT ORIENTED DEVELOPMENT- RELATED PLANS AND ONLINE MAP

For the best viewing experience, open this webpage in Microsoft Edge, Google Chrome, Safari, or Firefox. The online map is not fully supported with Internet Explorer.

Planning for and implementing transit-oriented development (TOD) requires the collaboration of many different agencies and organizations, who each undertake TOD-related efforts.  To better track these efforts and understand how they support one another, the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) District Four inventoried all TOD-relevant plans and documents in Miami-Dade, Broward, and Palm Beach Counties, and populated the interactive map below with this information. 

The map below displays existing and potential future premium transit corridors and station locations from adopted plans.  Zoom in or out to your area of interest.  Click on an individual station to view a list of TOD-related documents for that station area.  Use the widgets to view and filter the planned corridors by different attributes (name, source, funding status, and transit type).  Click on the TOD Inventory of Plans just below the map to view a complete list of all TOD-related documents.  

The inventory and map are resources for TOD stakeholders who want to know what planning efforts have occurred by station area. These resources help TOD stakeholders plan for TOD in locations where premium transit service is anticipated.  They also serve as a starting source for gathering information needed to assess a station area’s readiness for TOD.

The text under the map briefly describes the information displayed and different features. The TOD Inventory of Plans contains a complete list of all TOD-related documents currently included in the inventory and map.

map Layers

Existing Corridors – Thin solid green lines include Metrorail, Metromover, Tri-Rail, and the South Miami-Dade Busway.

Existing Stations – Stations on existing premium transit corridors* or where three or more bus lines converge. Blue circles show stations with park and ride facilities.  Stations without park and ride facilities are shown in purple.

Planned Corridors – Dashed lines show premium transit corridors* proposed in MPO Long Range Transportation Plans (LRTPs), transit agency Transit Development Plans (TDPs), and the Strategic Miami Area Rapid Transit (SMART) Plan. Planned corridors are initially colored by transit type.  Use the widgets to the right or along the bottom of the map to filter and color by different attributes. The funding status and transit type displayed in the pop-up boxes are as specified in the source documents.

Planned Stations – Square points show premium transit stations proposed in LRTPs, TDPs, and other corridor studies. Blue squares represent planned stations with a park and ride facility.  Purple squares represent planned stations without a park and ride facility.  Click on a station to view the station name, status, and relevant plans and documents. 

Livable Communities -  Plans contained within the livable communities’ database are shown on the map as yellow polygons. This layer is turned off in the default map view.

*Existing and planned premium transit corridors in the map include:

  • Rapid Transit Corridors from the SMART Plan (transit type to be determined)
  • Heavy Rail (Metrorail and Metromover)
  • Commuter Rail (Tri-Rail and Tri-Rail Coastal Link)
  • Light Rail & Streetcar (portions of Central Broward East-West)
  • Bus Rapid Transit (“Bus Rapid Transit” from the Miami-Dade and Broward 2040 LRTPs and the MDT 2017 TDP, “Rapid Bus” from the BCT 2017 TDP, “Bus Express Rapid Transit” from the SMART Plan, and the South Miami-Dade Busway)
  • Express Bus (from the MDT and Palm Tran 2017 TDPs and the Palm Beach 2040 LRTP)

The corridors displayed include fully funded, partially funded, and unfunded (vision) premium transit investments from the Miami-Dade, Broward, and Palm Beach 2040 LRTPs; the MDT, BCT, Palm Tran, and SFRTA 2018-2027 TDPs; and the SMART Plan.  Other transit corridors from the SIS 2045 Unfunded Multimodal Needs Plan and the 2040 SEFTC Regional Transportation Plan are not displayed. 

The map does not display all existing bus lines and bus stops. Current and future express and enhanced bus lines in Miami-Dade County are also not included.

What is Transit-oriented Development?

walkability.jpg

In simplest terms, Transit-Oriented Developments (TODs) are compact, moderate to high intensity and density, mixed use areas within one half mile of a transit stop or station that is designed to maximize walking trips and access to transit. They also are characterized by streetscapes and an urban form oriented to pedestrians to promote walking trip to stations and varied other uses within station areas. One quarter-mile and one-half mile distances represent a 5 to 10 minute walk time, which is the amount of time most people are willing to walk to a destination. The most intense and dense development is typically located within the one quarter mile radius (transit core). Developments' intensities and densities gradually decrease out to the one-half mile radius (transit neighborhood) and the one mile radius (transit supportive area). The transit core, the transit neighborhood, and the transit supportive area are depicted in the image to the left.  – A Framework for Transit Oriented Development in Florida

Transit-oriented developments require integrated land use and transportation planning.  The interactive map above focuses on the transportation planning.  You can view relevant land use studies, market analyses, and other documents by clicking on individual stations.

The Southeast Florida Inventory of TOD-Related Plans and Online Map on this webpage are updates of earlier versions created for the Southeast Florida TOD Working Group. The group is comprised of public, private, and non-profit TOD stakeholders.  It formed in 2013 with a mission of working together to facilitate TOD planning and implementation in Miami-Dade, Broward, and Palm Beach Counties through sharing of information.  The TOD Working Group determined that compiling TOD-related planning documents and mapping potential future transit investments would help facilitate TOD implementation and support planned transit investments within the Southeast Florida region..
