Marjorie McKenzie

Carpool

“We’re beating traffic and helping the environment.”

Marjorie is one of four friends and coworkers who carpool from North Broward to Miami International Airport. Each morning, the group meets in North Broward to begin their commute. The advantages are tremendous. For starters, they get to take the less-congested HOV lanes, which saves them a lot of time. Then, they hop on the I-95 Express Lanes and split the tolls four ways, making it highly affordable. Plus, they share gas costs and dramatically reduce the wear and tear on their cars.

 “For us it’s a win/win in terms of gas, tolls and time. Plus, we’re helping the environment with three fewer cars on the road each day. We’ve been doing it for three years and  recently heard about the Carpool Incentive Program. We’re definitely signing up to earn monthly cash rewards,” adds Marjorie.

Michelle Acuna

595 Express Bus

“It’s my stress-free way to get to work.”

Michelle has been taking the 595 Express Bus, since it began running a few years back. She says she loves the opportunity to get a head start on the day’s work or to download books to read during her commute.

“I’m busy most of the day. Now I have time to unwind with a great book on the way to work. I truly love it,” says Michelle.

Dave Fletcher

Tri-Rail & Bicycle

“I save money, kick back, and avoid traffic.”

For seven years Dave has incorporated his love of biking into his daily commute between Hollywood and Miami.

“I bike to the Tri-Rail Station near my home in Hollywood, wheel my bike onboard, and then kick back for the short ride to Miami. Then it’s back on my bike for a great morning ride into work. I’m saving money on gas, doing right by the planet, and keeping myself healthy and happy.”

Dave adds that he never has to fight for a parking space in the busy Miami area where he works. He just parks his bike in his office for the ultimate in hassle-free commuting.

Siham Scott

Miami-Dade Transit Bus & Metrorail

“Wouldn’t trade it. Best move ever.”

Siham discovered the advantages of commuting via bus and MetroRail less than a year ago and already she says, “It’s the best thing I’ve done since starting to work at South Miami Hospital.”

Siham lives down in Homestead and commutes every day to Miami. However, now, instead of battling traffic, she catches the bus to the Metro Rail Station. From there, it’s a straight shot to the hospital.

“I don’t have to worry about traffic or road rage. And who wouldn’t want someone picking you up and dropping you off every day? I save a ton on gas and put less wear and tear on my car,” adds Siham.

Judy McLeod

Metrorail

“I’d rather read a book than drive my car!”

Judy is no stranger to the benefits of public transportation. From 2003 to 2006, she was part of a vanpool that she “loved” because it helped her save on gas and avoid the stress of bumper-to-bumper traffic each day.

Since then, Judy’s life has changed quite a bit, however, her appreciation for public transportation hasn’t wavered. These days, she uses the Metrorail, MetroMover and a bus to commute between her home in Miami and her job on Miami Beach.

“It’s just great. There’s less wear and tear on my automobile and I have the chance to read while on the way to work,” she states.

Judy doesn’t know exactly how much she has saved over the years by using public transportation. However, after more than a decade, it’s certainly a substantial sum.

Manuel Bazzani

Metrorail and Biking

“I stay out of traffic and in shape.”

There’s a Metrorail station near Manuel’s home. So, rather than battle traffic each day, he walks or hops on his bike to the train for a stress-free ride to his workplace in Miami.

“I’ve been doing this for about four years. In between train rides, I walk about three miles a day and that acts as my daily gym. It’s perfect,” says Manuel.
