What is MAP Broward?
MAP Broward is the 30-year program resulting from the Penny for Transportation Surtax approved by Broward County Voters in November 2018. The surtax took effect on January 1, 2019 and the first distribution of surtax revenues was received by Broward County from the Department of Revenue in March 2019.
The Mobility Advancement Program (MAP) was created to administer and manage all elements of the program. Transportation Surtax funded projects are intended to address the following five goals, targeting our community’s mobility challenges:
|Create Connectivity||Vehicle and infrastructure 2-way communications; better real-time mobility-related information; bridging access to mobility options by improving sidewalk, bicycle, and multi-use path facilities, improving safe movement between disconnected communities|
|Traffic System Management||Investing in fiber optics; real-time traffic signal adaptation technology; countywide signal system video detection maintenance; signal video system and censor enhancements; lane widening where possible; intersection improvements|
|Improve Transit Service||Expansions, investments and improvements for Municipal Community Shuttles, Paratransit, & Transit services, including premium transit infrastructure (rail and bus rapid transit)|
|Enhance Multimodal Options||Improve, expand and promote innovative technologies for multimodal travel options, improved safety, and facilitating mode shifts|
|Economic Developments and Benefits||Overall Program goal of 30% small business participation of eligible surtax-funded projects of the 30 years; improving and promoting equitable investments across the County; encouraging use of apprenticeship and other workforce investment programs on eligible surtax projects|
