Agenda / Meeting Summary










The purpose of this workshop was to engage the municipalities that have land use and transportation authority adjacent and surrounding the University Drive Corridor. The goal is to provide the necessary framework and tools that are needed for transit to be successful along the corridor. A walking exercise of two area(s) along University Drive was conducted. Each participant was given a worksheet to fill in that evaluated a variety of land use conditions that either supported or created problems for transit users along University Drive.

Great attendance ranged from local municipalities, Broward County Transit, Florida Department of Transportation, and the Broward MPO.


Participants made several observations and recognized that there are a variety of improvements that can be made for an area to become transit friendly:

  1. Build closer to the street
  2. Shaded areas for pedestrians and shelter for varying weather conditions
  3. Variety of land uses to offer choices
  4. Better pedestrian connections from bus stops to the retail, office areas
  5. Bicycle parking
  6. Safe walking connections to and from multiple sites
