BROWARD COUNTY, FL – The Broward
County Commission will hold a public hearing at 10AM on Tuesday, October 23,
2018 at the Broward County Governmental Center, Room 422, 115 South Andrews
Avenue, Fort Lauderdale, to receive public input on Broward County Transit
(BCT) proposed new limited-stop fixed-bus service along Broward Boulevard
between Sunrise and downtown Fort Lauderdale, the Broward Breeze. If no
revisions are made to the service plan, this route will become final.

efficient and accessible regional intermodal transportation network” and

and internal customers.”
Following is a description of the
proposed new route:
This proposed new service will
travel westbound and eastbound, giving customers access to employment,
education centers, appointments, and entertainment venues in Sunrise,
Plantation, and downtown Fort Lauderdale. The hours of operation will be

style NABI vehicles equipped with wi-fi. The Broward Breeze will run every 30 minutes
