Do you need more Sun Trolley or Public Transportation Stops in your neighborhood?


On 9/10/2019 at the CFLCA General Meeting neighbor feedback was collected. Residents in attendance from Rock Island and River Gardens/Sweeting Estates indicated an interest in additional trolley stops/public transportation.

If your neighborhood would like to request additional trolley stops/public transportation please contact Robyn Chiarelli so she can arrange a meeting with your Association to fully understand your needs and to discuss if/how Downtown Fort Lauderdale Transportation Management Association may be able to fulfill them.

Downtown Fort Lauderdale Transportation Management Association compiles route / stop requests and brings them forward to the City and TMA Board for consideration in the case that multiple people or groups come forward with the same request.
