The Miami-Dade Transportation Planning Organization has developed several interactive tools to help the planning process.
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.

Future Intermodal Centers & Transit Oriented Development Database
The Future Intermodal Centers & Transit Oriented Development (FIC-TOD) database serves as a repository for information regarding the development of future intermodal transfer facilities that will enhance the traveling public's ability to transfer easily between different transportation modes to complete trips throughout the County. This may include going from a commuter rail line to a connecting bus route, transfers between bus routes, or transfers from car to bus or rail transit at a park-and-ride facility. These facilities may also provide enhanced access to Miami International Airport and the Port of Miami.
The database also includes information regarding the potential for establishing more transit-supportive development patterns around these future intermodal sites where it is appropriate.
Do you have more questions concerning the FIC-TOD Database site? Contact Carlos Roa by email or at 305-375-1837.
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 Carlos Roa by email or at 305-375-1833.
Interactive Transportation Planning Tool
Now being developed, the Interactive Transportation Planning Tool (ITPT) is an online GIS application that provides the ability to perform corridor specific analyses and create custom maps of local demographic and transportation information at various geographic levels.
Do you have more questions concerning the ITPT site? Contact Jesus Guerra by email or at 305-375-2069.
Long Range Transportation Plan Interactive Project Tool
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.

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?; (2) how will people travel?; (3) what routes will people take?, in addition to several critical “what if” questions about proposed plans and policies. The latest version of SERPM (7.0) 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 it.
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 Jesus Guerra by email or at 305-375-2069.
Transportation Outreach Planner
The TPO created the Transportation Outreach Planner in order to review the social, economic, and geographic characteristics of an area before public involvement efforts are initiated. In 2010 the program became regional when the Broward and Palm Beach MPOs joined the program.
The Transportation Outreach Planner now includes a new, interactive mapping and reporting tool called the 2010 Census Demographic Reporting Tool. You can locate 2010 census data and 2009 American Community Survey (ACS) data by census block groups, census places, and neighborhoods for Broward, Miami Dade, and Palm Beach counties.
Do you have more questions concerning the Transportation Outreach Planner site? Contact Elizabeth Rockwell by email or at 305-375-1881.
