METRO-DADE TRANSIT AGENCY MDTA Metromover Extensions Survey and Analysis F INAL REPORT Prepared for Metro-Dade Transit Agency .. M E T ll 0 o A 0 E by Center for Urban Transportation Research College o f Engineering University of South Florida Tampa, CUTR OCTOBER 1994


l.VIETROMOVER EXTENSIONS SURVEY AND ANALYSIS PROJECT OBJECTIVE The Omni and Brickell extensions of the Metro-Dade Transit Agency (MDTA) Metromover opened for revenue service on May 27 1994 Based on the Metromover F i nal Environmental Impact Stat emen t (FEIS) and previous work completed by the Center for U rban Transportation Researc h (CUTR) related to Metrobus r oute truncations associated with the openin g of the Metromover extensions, Metrobus routes are p lann ed for truncation at the Omni and Bric kell Metromover Stations. Route "A" was truncated a t t h e O mni t ermi n al for the May 27 th opening. All of the Omn i and Brickell corr idor routes a r e cand i dates for ultimate route truncation. In a previous report, CUTR rec o mmended that the route truncations occur over a two-year period to minimiz e the im pacts on Meirobus r i ders. Further, it was recomm ended that MDT A monito r Metrobus and Metromover ri d er ship and transfer activity after the opening of the mover ex t e ns ions and the first phase of route truncations t o see if: patrons o f the trun c ated Metrobus routes are transferring to the Metromover or to a n o th er bus destined to the CBD; patrons of non-trunca ted Metrobus ro u tes are transferring to the Metromo v e r Based o n t he travel behavio r of the riders and other efficie n cy considerations, a decision regarding which addi t ional Metrobus routes to t r unca te c an be mad e The purpose of this p r oject was to (I) monitor the bus to mover, bus to b us, and mover to bus tra n sfer activity at both the Omn i a n d Bric kell Metro mover Stations after th e opening of th e Metromover extensions, (2) survey bus and mover riders at the Omni and Brickell Stations t o ana l yze t h e impacts o f the mover openings, in c ludi ng transfers and station destinatio n (3) based on the previous information; continue to update th.e prioritizatio n of Metro bus rou t e truncat ion This effort was i ntended to track the travel behav ior of patr o ns over the fir s t few months of service on the Metromover extensions. A mo r e comprehensive survey is env i sioned for early 1995 when the new Metrom o v er fare policy is in effect and tra ve l patte rn s are more stabilized. I


TRANSFER ACTIVITY AT BRICKELL AND OMNI STATI ONS During the month of August 1994, in fonnation on weekday patrol) movements were collected at the Omni and Brickell Metromover Stations. Visual surveys of th e Bricke ll M etro mo ver Station by Ml)T A personnel showed no transfers between bus and mover. Da t a gathered at the Onmi Metromove r S tat ion included the mode of access to Metrobus and Metromover, the.amount of transferring between buses and the actual number of hoard ings on the Metromover. These activities were monitored from 6:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m For the t wo days surveyed (p.m. one day, a .m the next day), a total of 1,455 passengers boarded ... the Metromover in both directions (inbound and outbound) at the Omni Station. This represents approximately 71 percent of the total average weekday hoardings as reported by MDTA for the mon t h of June 1994, the most recent counts available. Of the 1,455 Metromover hoard ings, 40 percent walked up from a n adjacent street 18 percent walked from the Omni Mall and the remaini ng 42 percent transferred from Met robus ro u te s directl y serving the station or the stop adjacent on NE 15t h Street. Tab le 1 presents the mode of access t o the Omni Metromover by time of day. As can be seen from this table, a significant percentage of r iders boarding the mover at the Omni Station were transferring from the Metro bus system. During this survey O m ni bus access movemen ts were also observed Both transfers from bus a n d walk access were documented. Metromover-to -bus movements were not do cume nted, although it can be assumed that ma ny of those bus-to-mover transfers wou l d return as mover-to-bus tnmsfers. Table 2 indicates that 1,394 transfers were made between buses at the Onmi t erminal d u ring the three time periods. Assuming a similar number of transfers f rom mover -to-bus as was documented for bus-to mover in Table 1 (612), then approximately 53 percent of the bus riders accessed the bus from ano ther bus, 24 percent transferred from the Metromover, and 23 percent walked. DOWNTOWN MlAMI METROBUSJM:ETROMOVER PASSENGER SURVEY During the month of 1994, CUTR and MDTA staff conducted weekday surveys of Metrobus and Met romover riders travelling through the Brickell and Omni Station areas. Specifica ll y, passengers onbo a rd Brickell bus ro u tes 8, 24, 48, and B, and onboard Omni bus routes 3, 16 93X, C, K M S, and T were randomly surveyed for both inbound and outbound tri ps between the Central Business District (CBD) and the Omni and Br ic kell bus stations. 2

lnboWld Metromover passengers were randomly sw:veyed on the Omni and Brickell platform before boarding the move .r. One purpose of this survey was to determine why Metrobus passengers are not riding the Metromover system for their trip htto or out of the CBD. Also, Metromover riders were questioned about their reasons for using the Metromover system Finally, both Metrobus and Metromover passengers were asked to indicate on a map t heir origin or destination in the Miami CBD. Survey Analysis Tables 3 through 6 present the results of the surveys for both Metrobus and Metromover passengers at the Omni and Brickell stations. The actual survey documents are included in Appel)dix A. Survey results were not weighted. Subsequent anal)lses are based on a samp l e of the ridership for an average Weekday, since the data are not factored t o represent the total ridership for th e surveyed routes and system for that day. It is lmportant to note that these data represent on l y those riders that were actually surveyed, and may not represent the entire population of r i ders. Omni Metrol:ius As shown i n Tab l e 3, 652 passengers were surveyed on inboWld and ou t bound CBD-oriented Ornni Metrobus routes during the three time periods. Mode of Access Approximate ly 54 percent of the sw:veyed respondents walked 0-3 blocks to access Metrobus service which travels through the Omni terminal. Other passengers accessed Metro bus by transferring from another bus (23.0 %), walking more than three blocks (9.8 %), or transferring from Metrorail (9.4 %). Responses were consistent among the three time periods of the survey Reasons for not using Metromover Respondents were asked to check all reasons why they did not use the Metromover for this trip. Over 47 percent of the respondents answered that Metwbus is closer to their origin or destination. Twenty-eight percent of the respondents stated that the mover tskes longer, while 26 percent stated "other" as their response. Responses were consistent among the three time per i ods. 5

Mode of Egre s s More than 5 8 perce n t of the resp onde nts for the thre e t ime period s stated they w alked 0-3 blocks as t heir mode of egress. The n ext greatest response was for trans ferr ing to bus (18 8%), fo ll owed by walking niore than 3 blocks (13 0%). The responses to this q ues t io n appear consistent a mong the three time periods. Origin/Destination TAZ in Miami CBD Approxima tel y one-thi rd of the surveyed passengers answered the question asking for their ori.gin or destination in the CBD. Of those respo nd ing 9.7 percent were travelling to or from Traffic A nalysis Zone (TAZ) number 637, while 6 9 per ce n t were travelling t o or f ro m each of TAZs 630, 6 38, and 641.

Reasons for not using Metromover Almost 5.2 percent of the respondents for this question a nsw ered that the reason they rode Metrobus for this trip il)stead of Metromover was because the bus is closer to their origin or destination Almost 34 percent of the respondents stated that the mover takes longer while 16 perce n t stated that they did not like to transfer. Respo nses were fairly cons i stent.am6ng the three time periods, although in the p m period the primary reaso n for not using the Metromover system was that the mover takes l onger. Mode of Egress Thirty-two percent of the respondents for the three time periods sta te d that they walked 0-3 b lo cks as their mode of egress. The next greatest respOnse was for transferring to bus (30.1%), followed by walking more than three blocks (17.9%). The responses to tllis question appeared fairly consistent among the three time periods, although there was m ore transferring to bus a nd less wa l king in t h e p.m. t ime period. Origin/Destination TAZ in Miami CBD Only I 0 percent of the surveyed passengers answered the q ue stion aski n g for their origin/destination in the CBD. Of those responding, 20 percent were tra velling to o r fro m TAZ number 643, while 13.3 percent were travelling to or from e ac h ofTAZs 619, 6 47, and 656 Figure 3 prese n ts the results of this survey questio n for Brickell Metro bus use rs.

Other passengers accessed the OIWli Metromover by walking 0-3 blocks {29.4%), walking .from the OIWli Mall (15.5%), or walking m ore than 3 b l ocks (8.2%). Responses were u niform among the three time periods of the survey, though very few people 11

Mocie: of Access An equal percentage (39%) of those surveyed were either dropped off or walked 0 3 blocks as their mode of access to the Brickell Mettomover Station. Other passengers accessed the Brickell Metromover by transferring from Metrobus (6. 7% ), or transferring from Metrorail (5 6%). Responses were consistent among the three t ime periods of the survey, though a higher percentage of respondents were dropped off as their mode of access during the a m. peak period Mode of Egress Approximately 83 percent of the respondents for the three time per i ods stated t hey walked 0 3 blocks as their mode of eg r ess from the Metromove r The next greatest response was for walking more than 3 blocks (8.9%), and transferring to the Metrorail (3.3%). The responses t o this question appeared consistent among the three time periods . Reasons for using the Metromover Over 55 per ce nt of the respond e nts answered that the reason why they used the Metromover system for this trip was that it br ing s them c loser to the ir destination. Forty-five percent of the respondents stated that it saves time while 25. 8 percent stated that they rode it because it is free. Fina lly 22 5 percent of the respondents r ode the Metromover because it is m ore pleasant to ride. Responses were consistent among the three time periods Destination TAZ in Miami CBD Mo r e than 90 percent of the surveyed passengers answered the question that asked for their dest ination in the CBD. Of those responding, 22.4 percent travelled to TAZ numbers 674, and another 22.4 percent were travelling to TAZ n u mber 675, while 7 .I percent were travelling to T AZ number 60s: Figure 5 presents the resu lts of this siirvey q ttestion for Omni Metromover users. As can be seen from this figure, the greatest percen tage of passengers were travelling only a few stations to TAZs along the so u thern end of the Brickell Metromover loop. The r esponses were fa irly consistent for the three time periods. 17

Analysis of Metromover Riders Transferring from Metrobus One issue suggested for monitoring along with the truncation of bus service into the Omni and B ri ckell Stations was whether patrons of n on-tru ncated ro u tes were transferring to the Metromover system, and for what reasons. Tab le 7 p res ents the results o f a crosstabuiation of survey respondents who ind icated th eir mode of access to the Omni Metromover. Station as Metro bus in t erms of their reawns for using the mov er and their destination T AZ in the Miami CBD. Note that only 3 of the 90 survey respondents at the Brickell Mctromover Station indica ted Metrobus as the ir mode of access, and so this analysis foc u ses solely on Omni passengers . As indicated in Table 7 th ere were 165 surveyed respondents riding the Omni Metromover system who tra nsferr ed from Metrobus. O f these 16$1 over 32 percent indicated they were riding the mover because it saves t rav el t im e Additionally 29.1 percen t stated they rode t he mover because it brings the m c lo ser to the i r fi n a l destination, and 21.2 perce n t indicated it was more p leasant to ride. Figure 6 graphically presents the destination T AZ for the survey respondents. According to the data from the crosstabulation, 14.9 percent of the respondents were destined to TAZ 637 adjacent to the Government Center Station. Additionally 1 0.8 percent were destined to TAZ 630 (:MDCC), 10.8 percent to TAZ 628 (Arena/State Plaza), and 9.5 percenfto TAZ 634 (College/ Bayside). While these resp ondents seemed'slightly more lik ely to be destined to a TAZ at a mover statio n, the most significan t finding is the increase in respondents destined to U1e T AZs along the Brickell loop of the Metro m over. These patrons obviously are saving time by staying on the Metroinover system versus transferring to a so u thbound Brickell bus in the CBD. 19

SUMMARY OF SURVEY RESULTS In general, riders on the Me t robus routes feeding the Omni and Brickell station areas did not use the Metromover system because the Metro bus was closer to their origin o r took them closer to their final destination in the Miami CBD. The seeond and related reason \vas that they perceived . . the Metromover t o take longer for their trip time. A nu mber. of riders also indicated that they did not want to transfer A short walk was the most typical mode of accessfegress. Finally, most passengers on the bus routes were destined to or originating from the Government Center area. TI1e respondents to the Omni and B ric kell Station Metromover survey used the Metromover system because it saves them time and bri11gs them c loser to their de stination Many respondents stated the y ro de the mover because of its more pleasant r ide. Similar to the bus system the majority of re spondents reported a short walk as their mode of access. F inally, while the Omni Metromover respondents were genera ll y destined to the Government Cente r area of the Miami CBD the Brickell riders were gener a lly only travelling 1-3 stops on the Metromover before a l i ghting SUMMARY . . . . . As part of the "MDTA Metromover Extensions Transfer Analysis" report co mplet ed by CUTR, a process was developed for prioritizing the Ornni a n d Brickell corridor bus routes for tr uncatio n in coordination with the opening of th e Metromover extensions. Factors cons i dered in this prio r it ization process included total daily ridership by route, percentage o f patrons w ho are over 65 years of age or ':"ho have physical d isabil ities transfers, and difference in travel time be tween t h e mover and b u s. Based on the information p resented in this report, no changes are recommended to t he current priOI'itization process or priorities as established in the previous technical report. Data have shown the im portance of trav e l t ime and the nega t ive attitudes towards transferrin g two major fact ors of the prioritization process. However, based on the number of patrons accessing the Metromover f rom Metrobus it is obvious th a t Omni Metrobus users are m uch more likely to adjust to route truncation at the Omni Station due to th e proximi ty of the mover pla t form, as opposed to the long distance walk from the bus stops to the mover platfom\ at the Brickell Statio n. This s hould be taken into consideration when pri o ri tizin g between O m ni and Brickell Metrobus ro utes for truncation. 2 2


Suryey results suggest that passengers ai:e making rationa l decisions based upon their origin of destination within the Miami CBD and their perception of travel times in choosing whether to u se Metrcibus or Metromover. The mor e pleasant ride offered by Me tro mover is a less important factor. On the other hand, operational delays relaied to start-up dur ing the first few weeks of Metromover operation have not had a negative impaet on many riders perceptions. Convenience and travel time savings are the major factors in choice of m ode. Anecdotal evidence suggests that not all Metrobus riders are aware of the Metromover extensions as an a l ternate way of getting around dow n town. 'Thi s lack of full awareness, current free-fare policy on Metromover, and the likelihood that travel patterns hav e not yet sta bil ized suggest th at a more complete survey ofMetromover riders should be undertaken as planned in tbe spring of 1 995. 23 .
