Since we posted the piece asking whether folks want to ride the South Beach Local, the 25-cent bus that circles Belle Isle and connects it with the rest of South Beach, we’ve gotten plenty of feedback.
A copy of the Belle Isle Blog story posted on MiamiHerald.com generated this feedback:
Too bad we didn’t have the local coming to Belle Isle when I lived there…That’s a great idea!!
What most people don’t realize is that, instead of driving around forever for a convenient parking space and paying big money to park, you could find a cheap space off the beaten trail space and take the local to your destination.
The Local is a small bus, they are fairly new, and much more comfortable than the large city buses.
I am a South Beach resident and use the Local. It is definitely better than driving and parking – and during the summer it’s a terrific way to get somewhere on the Beach without killing yourself in the humidity.
Here the info on the route: SBL-Flier.
Get on board.
