T.Y. Lin International provided professional services for this project that involved a mass transit feasibility study, an impact assessment, and a technical analysis for the MetroMover extension from downtown Miami to Miami Beach. This analysis was based on an analysis conducted for the MetroMover extension as part of the Technology Assessment in the Tier 1 Screening of alternatives in the BayLink DEIS study.

Project Highlights:

  • Multiple agency coordination
  • Comparative analysis of multiple transit systems

T.Y. Lin International also provided alternatives including the quantitative assessment and comparative analysis for use of various mass transit systems such as the MetroMover, Light Rail Transit (LRT), and Bus Rapid Transit (BRT). Alternative corridors included McArthur Causeway from Bicentennial Park to 5th Street/Alton Road, as well as alternatives west of Bicentennial Park to connect to the MetroMover extension into the MetroRail system. T.Y. Lin International coordinated with Miami-Dade Transit, Metropolitan Planning Organization, the City of Miami Beach, and other government agencies.
