Message From Our Executive Director, Greg Stuart 

Welcome to this week's edition of Mobility Monday! At the Broward Metropolitan Planning Organization, we rely on powerful computer models to simulate challenges and solutions to plan the future transportation system. Through partnerships with Google and Deloitte, leaders in the technology and business worlds, The Broward Metropolitan Planning Organization is applying to the U.S. Department of Transportation’s SMART grant program to bring our long-range planning capabilities to a new level. By creating a ‘digital twin’ of South Florida, we will be able to model and simulate scenarios in minutes to determine which transportation projects will solve our traffic woes, and which may be ineffective. The future of planning is here.
