Miami City Commissioners discussed a congestion toll, which is basically charging cars to enter a city center to alleviate gridlock and encourage mass transit use, at the last city commission meeting. Most of the discussion was centered around the perpetually backed-up US-1 south of Downtown, which Metrorail parallels, and other methods of alleviating gridlock such as improved signalization (it's totally out-of-whack now), increased vehicular capacity, and pedestrian amenities are also being looked at heavily, but in the end "all solutions are transit based" according to Deputy City Manager Alice Bravo.
