Commissioner Levine Cava continues to fight for resources for South Dade and recently won to restore the transit system serving South Dade residents and

businesses.

The Board of County Commissioners adopted a resolution that will add Sunday service to the Cutler Bay Local (Route 200). The Cutler Bay Local is the Town’s

trolley service, operated by Miami-Dade Transit, which serves as a critical connection for many transit dependent elderly residents in Cutler Bay. The resolution creates a new circulator route – Route 248 - running from Naranja, through Princeton, Goulds, and Cutler Bay to the Transitway. This new route will provide “last-mile” connections for tens of thousands of residents who, until now, had no bus service connection at all.

The County made modifications to Route 35 which serves communities of deep South Dade up to Miami-Dade College Kendall Campus. The route had been recently consolidated with Route 70 over the objections of many area residents and Commissioner Levine Cava. The resolution adopted by the Board made significant modifications to restore areas that had been cut off from transit service after the consolidation.
