South Beach Local faces cutbacks or rate hike

The South Beach Local, the 25-cent bus that links Belle Isle with the West Avenue Pub lix, Collins Park, the Washington Avenue corridor and a variety of stops along West Avenue, faces either major service cuts or a doubling of its fare.

The city’s Transportation and Parking Committee has recommended the 50 cent fare for the SBL to prevent cuts by Miami-Dade Transit, according to David Smiley on miamiherald.com.

About 130,00 a month ride the commuter bus, which added a stop on Belle Isle two years ago. Miami-Dade County ultimately will decide the fate of the route.
