  • What areas are set for most growth and how does our transit and infrastructure adapt? What is driving that growth?
  • How will projects like the Brightline and the Underline transform how we think about transit in South Florida?
  • How can create more accessibility in Southern Florida and can we mitigate rising costs for residents?
