Miami Beach Commission to discuss Venetian bus service today

Miami-Dade Transit resumed limited bus service between Miami and Miami Beach over the Venetian Causeway on Monday, but the small buses only operate during a 7 to 9:30 a.m. and 2 to 5:40 p.m. time frame.

And the South Beach Local no longer stops on Belle Isle.

Miami Beach city commissioners are scheduled to discuss the resumption of local bus service to Belle Isle at 5 p.m. at their Wednesday meeting.

Belle Isle transit advocate Barbara Cowen —  who collected more than 500 signatures on a petition to push for resumption of service — will be there. She’s urging others to attend.

Miami-Dade has curtailed bus service to the Venetian Islands since structural issues on the bridges connecting the islands caused engineers to impose new weight limits.
