The problem is Miami's transportation issues: traffic congestion, environmental impact, inadequate public transit, affordability, and lack of innovation. We aim to address these challenges by offering SunRide Miami, a comprehensive and sustainable solution.
SunRide Miami offers a holistic solution to Miami's transportation challenges. It combats traffic congestion with efficient, clean-energy buses, reduces the environmental impact by minimizing fossil fuel use, expands public transportation for better accessibility, prioritizes affordability through ad-generated revenue, and introduces innovation with user-friendly apps and green stations. Aligned with SDG 11, this project improves the quality of life for all Miami residents.
SunRide Miami will dramatically change thousands of lives. The beneficiaries include over 450,000 Miami residents who will enjoy affordable and sustainable transportation, reducing costs and travel times; the millions of visitors who will access the eco-friendly transit, reducing their environmental impact while exploring the city; low-income communities who will have decreased financial burdens, while having access to employment and education without sacrificing income; businesses who with increased accessibility will have more customers, fostering economic growth; and the government because Sunrise Miami will ease traffic congestion, enhancing urban air quality, and aligning with sustainability goals for a more efficient and eco-friendly transportation network.
