New Miramar Park and Ride Improves Access to Public Transportation

BROWARD COUNTY, FL - Construction has begun on a new $6.7 million dollar Park and Ride lot in the City of Miramar. This state-of-the-art facility will support the I-95 Express Service to Downtown Miami and Brickell. It accommodates 442 cars (including ADA spaces), 28 oversized vehicles, and 18 buses. There will be two dedicated bus bays, six extra-large transit shelters with solar-powered lighting, and electric charging for up to 20 cars. The lot will also include infrastructure to charge electric buses.


The project is a partnership between the City of Miramar, Broward County Transit (BCT), and the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT). The new park and ride lot will be located along the east side of Hiatus Road between Pembroke Road and Miramar Boulevard, in District 8, Commissioner Barbara Sharief’s district. 


“The Miramar Park and Ride has been long-awaited. This is a great day for Broward in moving closer to reaching its goal of improving transportation interconnectivity. Getting residents out of cars and into public transit enhances our ability to decrease traffic congestion and improve flow,” said Commissioner Dr. Barbara Sharief.


“In addition to convenience, the facility incorporates green technology in keeping with BCT’s commitment to providing clean, eco-friendly transportation. This is another example of the strides we are making toward building a more connected transit system that will meet the needs of our passengers and attract new riders,” said Chris Walton, Broward County Director of Transportation.


The new Miramar Park and Ride lot also has 911 cell towers and security cameras that will provide a higher level of safety. It is scheduled to be completed in April of 2022.
