Miami-Dade MPO: Improving Regional Transportation Planning in Miami-Dade County via Enhanced Local Access to Healthy Living…

This study provided information regarding planning for enhanced access to healthy living. It identified gaps in transit and mobility infrastructure, which make it difficult for users to access health providers, healthy foods, and other opportunities. The study focused on seven cities/neighborhoods in Miami-Dade County: 79th Street, Opa-locka, Liberty City, Grapeland Heights, Little Havana, Overtown, and Downtown Miami. As the objective was to identify needs, the following points were recommended to further explore the most significant gaps to achieve healthy living:

  • Explore more health data collection and monitoring
  • Provide better modeling for health access
  • Institute “Complete Streets” efforts that focus on improving access
  • Pursue further inquiry on specific health access needs
  • Explore further items that limit the ability to access
