Miami-Dade Transit unveiled Florida’s first air-conditioned bus shelter because of, well, Dubai. At the unveiling ceremony yesterday Mayor Gimenez quipped “When Alice [Bravo, head of MDT] told me there were air-conditioned bus shelters in Dubai, I said we need those in Miami-Dade County,” an anecdote that he probably thinks is super cute but a lot of people could easily mock.

Located at the Hialeah Metrorail Station, because it’s the transit stop frequented by the most old people, (measured by free ‘Golden Passport’ usage) again according to Gimenez, there will be at “at least thirty of these” placed around Miami-Dade County. That means lots of people could get the relief, and comfort, of not having to sit out and wait for the bus in the insanely sweltering Miami heat. “The more people are comfortable, the more they will use mass transit” says Mayor Gimenez.

What does this guy mean we have no transit system ? I lost my license and can’t believe how great Dade County is when it comes to transit , so who is this guy because apparently he don’t know anything about it , now Broward is good but the no breezes on the weekend and the one bus an hour on Sunday really hurts , but all in all , you don’t even need a DL in Dade and Broward county

this is great, however why is it in Hialeah only, why not start somewhere else. this is so sad. just because we have a mayor that is Hispanic he is only appealing to the Hispanics area. so sad!!!

Hialeah has a high ratio of elder folks that ride the bus and rail. At least the homeless now will have a nice place to sleep with the the AC running.
