The Miami-Dade Transportation Planning Organization has developed several interactive tools to help the planning process.
SMART Congestion Management Dashboard
The SMART Congestion Management Dashboard (CMD) is a tool to track real-time mobility travel data in Miami-Dade County to advance and support the decision-making process for the SMART Plan. As the SMART Plan transitions from planning/environmental into design/construction phases, the collected data provides the foundation for analytical tools to evaluate the Plan. This web-based platform provides user-friendly congestion management information and reporting tools for the SMART Plan.

Interactive Bicycle Trip Planning & Walk Smart to School Route Planner
Cyclists can use the Interactive Bicycle Trip Planning as a tool to provide a personalized selection of possible routes to match the rider's needs and skill level. The routes mapped out are based on a variety of features that may affect riders and an individual rider's preferences.
School kids and their parents now have a new version of the Walk Smart to School Route Planner web application optimized for mobile devices and smartphones! Search for your home address or starting place. The site will locate the nearest schools for your selection and choose a safe route to that school.
Do you have more questions concerning these sites? Contact Kevin Walford by email or at 305-375-2642 for full details.
InteracTIP (Returning soon!)
This is the online version of our Transportation Improvement Program (TIP). The site includes the TIP Summary, Project Listings, and Citizen's Guide. Visitors can also search for individual transportation projects by name, category, type, and budget.
The site also includes the InteracTIP Map Tool that lets you search the TIP by geography. Click on roads and streets to get detailed information about planned projects for that location. The tool even allows you to switch between map, satellite, terrain, or a combination.
Do you have more questions concerning the InteracTIP site? Contact Christopher Rosenberg by email or at 305-375-1817.
Long Range Transportation Plan Interactive Project Tool (Returning soon!)
The update of the Miami-Dade County Long Range Transportation Plan to the Year 2035 (LRTP) is a primary activity in Miami-Dade County's transportation planning process to meet federal and state requirements for an update of the Transportation Plan every five years.
This update includes an Interactive Project Tool that lets you explore priority projects. You can access Highway, Transit, and Congestion Management Improvement projects and Bicycle, Trail, and Pedestrian Facility Improvement projects separately. However, it is easy to switch between the two categories.
Do you have more questions concerning the 2035 LRTP site? Contact Wilson Fernandez by email or at 305-375-4507.
Modeling - Travel Demand Forecasting
The TPO’s transportation planning efforts rely on a number of data-driven approaches to assist policy-makers in making more informed transportation decisions. One such approach is travel demand forecasting to identify future travel needs. The tri-county regional travel forecasting model, Southeast Florida Regional Planning Model or SERPM, is utilized during planning stages of transportation projects such as new roadways, new transit lines, etc. SERPM provides an ability to answer critical questions such as: (1) how many trips will people make? – and to/from where? (2) how will people travel? – what mode will be used? (3) what routes will people take?, in addition to several critical “what if” questions about proposed plans and policies.
The SERPM model reflects the travel demand patterns and markets for major regional transit and highway projects, freight and goods logistic processes and delivery patterns along with the travel trip patterns of business and resident entities. The SERPM Model logically describes the attributes of the motorized trip making and mode choice behaviors affected by the land use intensity and accessibility and is sensitive to the trip destination end land use characteristics and transportation services, such as density, walk-ability, parking availability and parking cost. The model also allows users to easily test various population, employment and land use scenarios and provide detailed results on each scenario.
The latest version of SERPM (8.0) is a state-of-the–art activity-based model (ABM), and the Southeast Florida region is one of only a limited number of areas in the nation utilizing this type of model.
Transportation Facts and Trends
Miami-Dade County is at the nexus of both domestic and international economic activity. It has significant influence in the metropolitan region that bears its name, the entire state of Florida, the United States as a whole, and most of the Western Hemisphere. Miami-Dade’s location, and the transportation connections that it supports, allows it to remain a uniquely diverse and economically significant mega hub with strong indications for further growth well into the 21st Century. Indeed, this prosperity is directly linked to the efficient movement of people and goods throughout the region and beyond.
This online Compendium of Transportation Facts and Trends showcases the components, contributions, and importance of Miami-Dade’s transportation system and examines how Miami-Dade interacts with and compares to other places using multimodal transportation and economic-related data.
There are 5 videos in the Facts & Trends series - see them all on our YouTube channel. Do you have more questions concerning the Transportation Facts and Trends site? Contact Lisa Colmenares by email or at 305-375-1738.
Transit Oriented Communities (TOC) Tool
The TOC Tool is an accessible resource devoted to transit oriented communities in Miami-Dade County, specifically along corridors and station areas defined by the SMART Plan. The TOC Tool offers introductory information to help site visitors understand TOC, learn about design conventions in station area walksheds, and become acquainted with key topics for measuring and monitoring TOC implementation progress. The key topics reported in the TOC Tool are Economic Development, Urban Form, Regional Travel, and Local Access.
Transportation Outreach Planner
Since its inception in 2003, the Miami-Dade TPO has worked with FIU in developing this web-based tool that enables Public Involvement Officers/Managers and Transportation Planners to develop an effective public involvement program and accomplish the Title VI goal of properly identifying attitudes and issues facing a particular community. The tool utilizes ‘Sociocultural Effect’ principles (evaluating the effects of a transportation action on communities and their quality of life) to evaluate and incorporate community considerations into the planning and development of transportation plans, programs, and projects. To accomplish this, the tool is currently composed of three dynamically interconnected segments: Customized Demographic Reports; Public Outreach Strategies; and Community Background Reports.
If you have questions regarding the Transportation Outreach Planner tool, please contact Elizabeth Rockwell by email or at 305-375-1881.
