The Downtown Fort Lauderdale Mobility Hub is the first Hub that the Broward MPO has programmed for infrastructure improvements. This Mobility Hub is centrally located in an area that is actively redeveloping because of its close proximity to the downtown business district and government centers. On Friday, September 13, the City of Fort Lauderdale hosted the groundbreaking celebration that kickstarted the construction of Broward's first Mobility Hub. Stay tuned for project picture updates!

The Downtown Mobility Hub will be a multi-block area that will connect various transportation choices including:

  • Brightline inter-city passenger rail between Downtown Miami and Orlando
  • FEC commuter rail passenger rail service
  • Regional express bus service
  • Local bus service to points throughout Broward County
  • Shuttle bus connections to Tri-Rail stations
  • Sun Trolley community shuttle connections
