The Wave Streetcar
Downtown Fort Lauderdale's Planned Streetcar System
There will be streetscape improvements around the stations, to include pedestrian crosswalks, shade trees, lighting, and improved sidewalks.
A traffic signalization package is also part of the Wave, which will help maintain headways (how long you will have to wait at a station for a streetcar vehicle to pick you up) of 7.5 minutes during peak periods and 10 minutes during off peak periods.
The Broward MPO led the creation of a Wave video of the proposed route. Check it out: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hq6Q9zzhR8k
