South Beach Local route changes coming soon

South Beach Local leaving Belle Isle for Miami Beach.

The planned changes to the path of the South Beach Local — the 25-cent Miami-Dade Transit bus that circles Belle Isle and connects it with the rest of South Beach — take effect on June 27.

The changes mean half the buses leaving Belle Isle will go first to the Collins Park, area connecting Belle Isle quickly to the library, Convention Center and  the Beach, and then the bus will head south down Washington Avenue. You won’t have to ride to Publix, get off the bus, get on another and then go on.

The other half of the SBLs will head straight to Publix, and then (after an bus change) head south down West Avenue past Epicure,  Whole Foods and the Best Buy/Staples/Etc mall.

The leadership of the Belle Isle Residents Association have worked closely with Miami-Dade Transit on the new routes, which they hope will increase ridership from Belle Isle because the buses go more directly to the destinations people say they want. The association posted details on it today.

It’s part of changes the county makes to bus routes every six months. There are more details on that here.

Belle Isle Blog took a tour on the SBL a few months back, and you can see that here.

  1. It must be very nice how the rich and the elite get their accommodations taking care of…..GOD is not pleased on how the politicians take care of the little people… I have been calling 311 for months complaining about the drainage system in my area they advised me that we need to call the commissioners and to no avail no one does anything about it…. But check this out, my GOD sits up high and looks down low, you know this is hurricane season the raft of GOD is going to take all that down, all those beautiful condos they built for the rich, how can one be so blind and know that everything belongs to GOD….GOD giveth and he taketh…. You see what happened to Ms. M.Spence-Jones was not doing the right thing while she held office…Now she is home being a good mother and trying to rub to nickels togrther trying to make a dollar like us now……REMEMBER YOU WILL REAP WHAT YOU SOW, SO LETS TRY TO SOW GOOD SEEDS.
