28 Mar Revamping public transport: A conversation with Transit Alliance Miami’s Azhar Chougle
Transit Alliance Miami believes better public transit options will be good for Miami business owners, residents and the region’s economy.
Transit Alliance Miami may only be a few years old, but it has joined the city’s transportation advocacy scene with a bang. The alliance is the organization behind the Better Bus Project, a two-year, community-driven initiative to rebuild and redesign Miami-Dade County’s public bus routes. So far, the project has been endorsed by County Mayor Carlos Gimenez, who agreed to set aside $250,000 in county funds for the initiative. Azhar Chougle, director of Transit Alliance Miami, said the nonprofit managed to match that amount via fundraising in two months.
