The Florida Department of Transportation District Four, in coordination with Broward County, is undertaking the project development for the Central Broward Transit (CBT) Phase 1 Study in Broward County, Florida. This project has entered the Federal Transit Administration Project Development process, which includes technical evaluation of the proposed construction and operation of the modern streetcar service that will be located mostly within the City of Fort Lauderdale. As part of Project Development, an Environmental Assessment (EA) is being prepared for the project pursuant to the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA). The CBT Phase 1 Project would extend the future Wave Streetcar, currently being implemented and make important transit connections between downtown Fort Lauderdale, the Greater Fort Lauderdale-Broward County Convention Center/Port Everglades and the Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport.

The project will be completed in collaboration with our project partners that include the Broward Metropolitan Planning Organization, the City of Fort Lauderdale, and the Downtown Development Authority.

A Public Open House was held on January 21, 2016. This Project Open House was conducted to give interested persons an opportunity to express their views concerning the proposed project. If you would like to learn more about the Project Open House, click here.
