It all seems crazy to be planning massive capital investment in transit while at the same time implementing ongoing service cuts. Is this a matter of improving service for those who can afford alternatives while cutting service to those most in need?

Metrorail cuts reversed

http://www.miamiherald.com/news/loca...176069821.html

Quote:
The extra transit dollars proposed this week by Mayor Carlos Gimenez targeted the most contentious part of his proposed $7.4 billion 2018 budget, which originally preserved the shorter Metrorail hours and longer wait times for trains that his administration imposed earlier in the year. The transit cuts — including more than $2 million in reduced holiday service for bus routes — muddied the effort by county leaders to tout their pricey SMART initiative to expand transit across six commuting corridors countywide in the coming years.

“We’re talking about billions of dollars in expenses to help mobilize the workers and the citizens of this county,” said Commissioner Jean Monestime “Then we’re not willing to spend $2 million? How seriously should people take us?”

New Metrorail cars have arrived !

Miami-Dade county spent $313 million dollars on 136 new trains from Hitachi that were locally built in a plant in nearby Medley, FL.
The cars were fully paid for by the local 1/2 cent transit tax passed in 2002.
