Economic Mobility & Accessibility
The purpose of these studies is to develop transit oriented communities (TOC), first mile-last mile (FLM) connections, and transit hub components to support the economic mobility and accessibility plans for the SMART Plan corridors. Development of transit-oriented developments (TOD), which are an important component of TOCs, along transit corridors are key to maximizing the potential of the infrastructure investment. TODs are mixed ¬use, pedestrian-oriented areas surrounding transit stations. Many studies have noted that people are generally comfortable walking between ¼ mile and ½ mile to a transit station. As such, this area should be the focus of development and redevelopment in order to maximize the potential symbiotic relationship between land use and transportation.
North Corridor: Economic Mobility and Accessibility
This report addresses the North Corridor, the economic mobility and accessibility needs along this critical SMART Plan corridor, stretching 13-miles from the Miami-Dade/Broward County Line, to the Airport Expressway, along NW 27th Avenue. The North Corridor will create an important transit link between North and Central Miami-Dade County, as well as Broward County to the north. The results and recommendations from this study will be included in upcoming federal transit funding grant applications, as well as provides the TPO Governing Board with specific recommendations for the programming needs of the first/last mile network and Transit Oriented Development along this corridor.

South Dade TransitWay Corridor: Economic Mobility and Accessibility
This study is to recommend accessibility improvements in the South Dade TransitWay corridor and estimate the economic impact of the land use recommendations from the Land Use Scenario & Visioning Planning Study. That study was a scenario planning exercise. It demonstrated the effect on transit ridership in the corridor if increased development was attracted to the station areas along the South Dade Transitway, along with a discussion of land use regulation changes that would be necessary to enable that increased development.
East-West Corridor: Economic Mobility & Accessibility Study
This report addresses the economic mobility and accessibility needs along the SMART Plan East-West Corridor. Stretching approximately 16-miles from the Tamiami Terminal to the Miami Intermodal Center (MIC) along SR 836, the East-West Corridor will create an important transit link through central Miami-Dade County. The corridor will provide to residents and visitors the opportunity to better access jobs, major transportation hubs, and higher education centers.

Kendall Corridor: Economic Mobility and Accessibility
This document summarizes the Kendall Corridor Economic Mobility and Accessibility Study, which identifies steps to implement the vision for the Kendall Corridor. The vision for the Kendall Corridor was identified as part of an accompanying study, the Kendall Corridor Land Use Scenario and Visioning study. the Economic Mobility and Accessibility Study outlines and describes the actions, strategies, and projects needed to transform Kendall Drive from a predominantly suburban, auto-oriented context to an urban, multimodal context into the Kendall Corridor Vision.
