New Renderings Of The Miami Beach Monorail Which Could Become A Reality Following A Vote Tomorrow – The Next Miami

After decades in the works, a commission vote on building a monorail from the Miami mainland to Miami Beach is scheduled for tomorrow.

Backers of the privately built project released new renderings and details of the monorail system, ahead of the vote. Here is what they say the project will include if commissioners approve:

  • Ridership – expected at over 9,000 passengers per day
  • Technology – the system will utilize an elevated rubber tire monorail system developed by Bombardier
  • Speed – the trains will run at 50 mph, serving 12 trips per hour
  • Capacity – There will be two trains constantly operating, with one spare, each holding up to 300 riders
  • Fares – The consortium will work with the county to set a fare that provides the best value for residents and will be integrated into existing ridership programs
  • Capacity – There will be two trains constantly operating, with one spare, each holding up to 300 riders
  • Connectivity – A mainland transit hub with an integrated monorail, Metromover, and bus station will be built at NE 13th Street (between Bayshore Drive and Herald Plaza) on land swapped from Resorts World Miami, in exchange for the county turning over the Omni Bus Terminal land to Genting
  • Completion – expected in 2026

Meridiam, a global infrastructure development firm with over $8 billion in assets under management, has become the lead investor in the project.
