"Is The Wave Streetcar
the Future Transportation Answer?"

A reasoned discussion about the new transportation project, The Wave Streetcar.

The Wave Streetcar is intended to bring a modern light rail transit service to Downtown Fort Lauderdale as part of a planned regional transportation system. Involved agencies anticipate it integrating with a full spectrum of mobility options including rail, commuter and community buses, rideshare services, biking and walking. The County intends extensions of The Wave to other major destinations.

The Wave Streetcar would be powered by overhead electric lines, operate on embedded tracks in mixed traffic, and share the traffic lane with other vehicles. Once the system has been constructed, Broward County Transit will be responsible for the operation and maintenance of the Wave Streetcar.

The partnering agencies promote The Wave as a jobs creator, a catalyst to encourage private investment and help direct growth to the urban core as well as a connector of points of interest, a link to regional transit, a generator of foot traffic and also serving as a catalyst to advance a countywide regional transit system. There are numerous local organizations that agree on the need for better public transit, but question The Wave as the right solution.
