Miami Dade Transit screws loves its riders

Vicki Mallette, Communications Director for Miami-Dade County responds to last night's post that talked about the elimination of one very important late night bus route:
Here’s some good news for the folks who ride the 88 from Dadeland late at night: we’re bringing back the 12:50 a.m. departure, which should accommodate riders coming in on the last train of the night. It’s going to take a few days to work out the new schedule for the bus operators, so we think it will resume by Monday.

The change happened because our preliminary ridership data suggested that 12:50 run wasn’t being used very much. Once we finalized the data, however, we determined it was worth reinstating. It was that route's bus operator who brought the issue to our attention in the first place.

Based on feedback to 311, there are a couple of other tweaks we’re trying to make to this month’s route adjustments. Stay tuned for more information.
