Tourism is the most important source of revenue Miami. He attracted in 2011 to more than 13.5 million tourists who came to this city to enjoy its beaches, hotels, conferences, festivals and various events. These tourists are divided equally between Latin America and the northern United States and other countries, they left us a profit of 17,000 million dollars.

The tourism industry in Miami is very good and is improving every day.

However Miami public transportation leaves much to be desired, county officials are aware of this and try to amend this problem.

The figures denote that 12% of the population uses public transport daily this makes Miami has the highest rate of transit of Florida. Many workers rely on this transportation to their jobs.

Tourists also like to have easy access to public transport to travel around the city to offer affordable as other cities and without the inconvenience of being constantly calling taxis.

Hence the recent effort to add the orange line to Metrorail, which runs through Miami International Airport and passes through several key areas of the metropolitan area. The orange line has also served to make transport more frequency continues.

However in 2002 when he proposed citizens contributing half cent transportation, including airport, he made promises of improvement that have not been met.

Now there are other important projects in the public and private peephole as a fast train from Miami to Orlando that the company Florida East Coast Industries wants to establish. This service would have four stops, Miami Fort Lauderdale, West Palm Beach and Orlando with connections to ports and airports.
