Will Route 23 – The Only Bus Route Covering Weston be Eliminated?

Broward Bus RouteOr Replaced?

As we see new Bust Stops being installed on Weston Rd. we can imagine the elimination of Route 23 is the forecast of new Bus Routes that will serve Weston.

On September 14th, 2010 at 2:00 p.m. there will be a public hearing with the Broward County Board of Commissioners on the proposed elimination of Bus Route 23 which provides service to Weston. I know many people who uses and have used the service and the complete elimination of the only Public Transportation Service in Weston doesn’t make much sense.

The Meeting will be held at Broward County Governmental Center Room 422.
115 S. Andrews Av, Fort Lauderdale FL 33301.

For more information call (954)357-8355

If you know any additional information please let us Know!

Animal Relief Areas at Miami International Airport

Animal Relief Areas at Miami International Airport

Animal Relief Areas at Miami International Airport

As part of the $2.6 billion Major Capital Improvement Program that will continue through the year 2010 4 Animal Relief Areas have been created at Miami International Airport. MIA is the third largest airport in USA, on 2008 it served 16.1 million passengers; after NY Kennedy (#1) and LA International (#2). On 2008 MIA ranked #1 in International Freight.

Despite the volume of activity the flow at the airport moves very efficiently. The ability to check at the curbside, even for International flights, is a time saver. Another thing I noticed in my last trip is that now Immigration for Residents/US Citizens and Visitors are done in two completely separate areas; the set up looks improvised…I don’t know if it is something temporary or permanent.
As it reads in their web site:
“Miami International Airport’s (MIA) and the General Aviation Airports’ annual economic impact is $26.7 billion. MIA and related aviation industries contribute 282,043 jobs directly and indirectly to the local economy. That equates to one out of 4.1 jobs.”

At MIA there is always something new going on!
