If the name Flagami sounds familiar its because its a portmanteau of the words, “Flager” and “Tamiami.” The neighborhood is southeast of the Tamiami Canal and divided into two parts by Flagler Street.
But before city officials move forward with the plan, they’re inviting locals to the Miami Trolley Flagami route community meeting to hear input about the new route.
The 6 p.m. meeting will be held on May 9 at West End Park located at 6030 Southwest 2nd Street. Commissioner Willy Gort and Commissioner Manolo Reyes will host the meeting.
The Miami Trolley has experienced a steady growth of riders in the past years.
“While other mass transit in the region is in decline, Miami Trolley continues to grow,” director of communications Eugene Ramirez says. “Having residents help us design routes that work for them will continue to ensure its success. Mobility is key to preparing Miami for the future.”
Since fiscal year 2013 and 2014, the Miami Trolley has seen a rise in the number of passengers who utilize the service.
In the fiscal year 2016 and 2017, the Miami Trolley had over 5 million boarders compared to 2.3 million in fiscal year 2013 and 2014.
