Last night, the City Commission took a critical step to build an underground transportation network in #FortLauderdale called the #LasOlasLoop. Using electric vehicles, passengers would be whisked between downtown and the beach, avoiding traffic and the need to find parking. 1/3 Image
The Commission approved an interim agreement w/@boringcompany that authorizes the firm to proceed with feasibility studies. The details will be used to design the loop’s alignments and determine the costs through construction, operations, and maintenance.

#LasOlasLoop is a solution to help address the city’s transport needs and ease congestion. Beachgoers on holiday weekends or during big events will be able to get there quickly & hassle-free. We're thinking outside the box to create a city of the future.
