Brightline and Tri-Rail take South Floridians across the region. Now a monorail plan is in the works. Broward and Miami-Dade County transit officials are proposing a single track that would run along Northwest 27th Avenue in Miami — connecting the Hard Rock Stadium up to an area of college campuses in Broward.
