New TrAC is dedicated to Miami Transit

Miami’s new Transit Action Committee, or TrAC for short, a citizen-organized political action committee, formed this week and will have their official launch this week. TrAC invites all residents of Miami-Dade to attend the launch party on Thursday, September 5, and share their ideas and concerns about transit in their neighborhoods. 

TrAC was founded in response to the lack of political will in Miami behind transit improvements, resulting in limited transit options, inadequate bus and rail systems, and unsafe bike and pedestrian infrastructure. TrAC seeks to shift how voters in Miami think about development, traffic, and growth — moving away from a car-centric mentality toward a long-term vision for a city planned and designed for people and communities. 

At Thursday's meeting at 6 pm, TrAC will officially kick off at Blackbird Ordinary in Brickell (729 SW 1 Avenue). Guest speakers include Katy Sorenson, President & CEO of the Good Government Initiative, and Carol Coletta, new Vice President for Community & National Initiatives at the Knight Foundation.

The party is free to attend, and contributions to help launch TrAC are welcomed.

The first organization of its kind in Miami, TrAC, a non-partisan committee, will support candidates, elected officials, and policy initiatives dedicated to improving the quality and safety of our transit, mobility and planning choices, and advocate for the expansion and growth of our public transportation options.

Here's my 3 part plan to fix traffic problems: Legalize weed, tax churches, extend the train system, adding more light rail extensions like downtown in east and west areas. The first two more than pay for the latter.

That's more concrete and realistic than anything any politician has ever said in the history of this county.
