Broward MPO secures a $1.5 million FTA Grant

The Broward MPO has been awarded a Federal Transit Administration (FTA) grant to conduct a study (Alternatives Analysis) to explore enhanced bus and bus rapid transit alternatives on University Drive.

The study will focus on a 27-mile stretch of University Drive between Sample Road and Hallandale Beach Boulevard, which includes through the City of Lauderhill. This section of road has a mix of land uses but is primarily commercial, and includes a number of employment centers.

Providing more transportation choices would not only improve access to these employment centers but would also greatly enhance economic competitiveness of the cities that border this segment of University Drive.
