Miami-Dade, Fla., launches transportation web portal.

Residents of Miami-Dade, Fla., have a single easy-to-use website that can tell them whether their airline flight is on schedule or there is a back-up on Interstate 95.

Go.miamidade.gov, launched in May, is a partnership of 11 transportation- and tourism-related agencies in South Florida, including Miami International Airport, the Miami-Dade Expressway Authority and the Greater Miami Visitors and Convention Bureau. The website features links to bus and rail schedules, transportation plan updates and five traffic cameras. The links are arranged by four basic categories--air, land, sea and accessible services.

"There is a wealth of useful and exciting information about transportation and mass transit on the web, but ... it's scattered among so many different websites," said Transit Director Roosevelt Bradley. "Go.miamidade.gov brings all that information together in one user-friendly website that makes it easy for people to get where they want to go. Go.miamidade.gov also is a great way to market Miami-Dade County to tourists and encourage them to use our transit system to get around."
