The Miami-Dade County Department of Transportation and Public Works (DTPW) launched its new 836 Express Bus Service on Monday, Mar. 2.
West Miami-Dade commuters now will be able to travel directly from the new Dolphin Station Park & Ride, located at 12065 NW 12 St., to Downtown Miami on the new express bus service. This service will bypass traffic by using the inside shoulder of State Road (SR) 836 when regular lanes are congested.
The inside shoulder lanes of SR 836 were widened, painted with a red stripe, and stamped with “Bus Only” indicators to accommodate the service.
The 836 Express Bus service is the first express route to provide East-West service.
Weekday morning and afternoon peak hour service will be provided every 10 minutes for $2.25 each way. Midday service in both directions will be available every 30 minutes.This segment of the East-West Corridor project was developed by DTPW in coordination with the Miami-Dade Transportation Planning Organization (TPO), the Miami-Dade Expressway Authority (MDX) and the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT), prior to the adoption of the SMART plan as part of an incremental approach to implement rapid transit service on the East-West Corridor of the People’s Transportation Plan (PTP).
