The 2020 Mayoral Candidate Transit Report Card

South Florida's first candidate report card on the topic of transit.

In Summer 2020, the Miami Riders Alliance, through its 100% volunteer efforts released the first-ever Mayoral Candidate Transit Report Card, and the first ever report card on transportation and land-use policy in South Florida history.

We released the Mayoral Candidate Report Card for the 2020 Primary Election in July (PDF Here) and the Report Card for the General Election in October (PDF Here).

The Report Card aimed to be—and was—the first report with no BS, no spin, and no wishy-washy political doublespeak. We offered candidates a yes or no answer so that voters knew exactly where they stood on the issues. After listening to the public's feedback after the release of the Primary Report Card, we tuned up the report to best deliver our message.

What is that?

Glad you asked.

The Riders Alliance Candidate report card goes beyond what you've seen in county politics. We're looking at each candidate's record on transit and transportation to help voters decide which candidate is best for them this election.

Does that mean you're endorsing someone for mayor?

Nope!

The Riders Alliance won't be endorsing anyone for mayor. We believe that by outlining the candidate's records which they have created for themselves is the best way for residents to make up their minds. We'll let the candidates' past choices dictate their future prospects.

How about for commission?

Nah.

Why should I care?

View counts.

Hundreds of Miamians visit riders.miami every month to learn about advocacy work for transit in #ourcounty. That means the public (and the candidates) should care a whole lot.

How can we trust you'll be fair?

Google is free.

We won't be posting our opinion. All stances are the candidates' own views from interviews and research conducted by our team.

We will also include a mechanism for candidates and members of the community to add more sources that are relevant to the topic. To be clear, we will not be including general items like "job creation" on the report card.

Alright. I'm on board.

Thanks!
