Message From Executive Director, Greg Stuart 

At the Broward MPO, we understand that fathers are essential to building strong families, and we want to recognize all of the sacrifices they make for their children. We believe fathers should be celebrated not just on Father’s Day, but every day of the year. To all the amazing dads out there, we want to wish you a happy Father’s Day. You have inspired us, encouraged us, and supported us throughout our lives. You are the true superheroes of our world, and we are grateful for everything you do. So, on June 18, take some time to celebrate all of the fathers and father figures in your life. Let them know how much they mean to you and show them just how much you appreciate them. Happy Father’s Day!


Greg Stuart Wins National Association

We’re on a winning streak! 🏆 Last week, the Broward MPO was honored with multiple awards at the National Association of Regional Councils (NARC) conference. Executive Director Greg Stuart was announced as the recipient of the highly coveted President's Award. This accolade is an incredible testament to Greg's decades of unwavering dedication and contribution to transportation planning and advocacy for Broward County.

Throughout his career, Greg has worked diligently to elevate the Broward MPO to become a respected and nationally recognized leader in transportation planning. His strategic vision has enabled the MPO to develop a strong transportation plan that balances the community's needs while still considering environmental factors, public input, and equitable access to various transportation modes. Greg has tirelessly promoted collaboration and partnership with local and state officials to create an inclusive approach to mobility.

The President's Award is the most prestigious honor bestowed by NARC, and it recognizes extraordinary individuals who have demonstrated leadership and vision in improving the quality of life in their community.

Wait a Minute! Don't Risk It! 🛑

Before you hit the gas and cross those tracks, take a minute to think. On average, a Brightline train takes 60 seconds to go through a crossing. In those same 60 seconds, you take ten deep breaths, listen to a song, or finish your coffee. 

You shouldn’t try to beat the train. For what? To save 60 seconds? When you eventually have to wait for a train, take that time as a moment to yourself. Your life is worth more than 60 seconds.

Our "Don't Risk It" campaign is a powerful reminder that waiting for a train is worth it when it comes to saving lives. Let's all pledge to prioritize safety and spread the word! Click here to learn more!
