Park your BMW and take the bus

May 16th, 2012 · 6 Comments

According to an article in Travel + Leisure magazine, the 2nd most visited shopping mall in the nation is the Aventura Mall. With South Florida’s traffic being as bad as it is, getting there can be quite a struggle at times. If you’re traveling via I-95, the exit ramp to get there, Ives Dairy is always a major source of frustration no matter which direction you’re coming from. One way to ease the stress is to let someone else do the driving, try taking the bus instead. It’s convenient, saves money and thanks to a recent federal grant it’s going be a lot faster.

Here’s what the future might look like…

According to an article in The Miami Herald, titled Broward gets Grant to Speed Fort Lauderdale-Aventura Bus Route, Broward Transit Systems recently acquired funds to explore technologies that will improve transit time. Soon it will make that much more sense to leave that car at home and take the bus. Already Miami-Dade and Broward Transit services have easy to understand tools to help you plan out your route to Aventura Mall. Once you get there be sure to take advantage of the Aventura Express Shuttle Bus Service. The shuttle bus service is a transit system, offered by the City of Aventura, that will connect you via multiple routes to exceptional shopping and all the places you need in Aventura. So the next time you’re planning a trip to the Aventura Mall, take some of the stress out of the journey and take the bus. You’ll shop much better and you’ll never have to remember where you parked!

    Once in awhile I take the local shuttle to and from the mall. I will not take the bus. I honestly, prefer my car!

    there are some nice cars in Aventura so it’s probably hard for people to make the switch.

    There are some gorgeous cars where I live. Not mine though. I park in my garage with a Bentley on one side and a Mecedes on the other and a Rolls in the next row. I drive a LaCross. I am the poor neighbor! It’s like the Miami auto show in our garage. Even a couple of Maserati’s!

    If they would run the shuttle busses every 10-15 minutes instead of once an hour, I’d use them. Besides being incredibly SLOW (does it really have to enter every complex???), the hourly headway makes it pretty useless. If I don’t drive, I just walk because it’s actually faster.

    Wonder if this could work by having a Local and Express shuttle – like the trains in NYC?

    I like the shuttle, but sometimes is complicated to get in with a double stroller … So I walk instead or drive
