Oakland Park Boulevard is a major east-west roadway in the central portion of Broward County, providing access to major employment and shopping centers. It also provides access to educational, civic, recreational and health related facilities. People use Oakland Park Boulevard for many of their trips by walking, biking, car, or bus. In fact, Broward County Transit’s Route 72 on Oakland Park Boulevard is the busiest east-west route, with nearly 9,000 riders boarding its buses daily.

“With so many transit riders in the corridor and the potential for additional people to use the service, the Florida Department of Transportation, in partnership with Broward County Transit and the Broward Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) initiated a transit corridor study to:

    • enhance the passenger and/or pedestrian experience;
    • improve transit service reliability and travel time; and
    • encourage transit oriented development.
