Buses on Shoulders Program
In March 2007, buses started running on the shoulders of the Don Shula and Snapper Creek expressways as part of an initiative to bypass traffic congestion. According to Miami Dade transit authorities this program has helped to improve on-time performance and encourage more commuters to use transit.
Buses serving the Kendall Area Transit (KAT) routes, which connect West Kendall with the Dadeland North Metrorail station, enter the shoulder lanes whenever traffic speeds on the main lanes drop to less than 35 mph. Because of the success of this program, the County is considering implementing it on other expressways.
