Hollywood is on the MAP!

City of Hollywood

February 24, 2022

The Mobility Advancement Program (MAP), funded by the Broward County voter-approved transportation surtax, is the name used to describe all the elements of the 30-year project-based plan. Broward County has a detailed, 30-year Mobility Advancement Plan to implement the local one percent, 30-year surtax approved by voters.

The Plan is designed to reduce traffic congestion, improve roads and bridges, enhance traffic light timing, develop safe sidewalks and bike paths, expand mass transit, fully fund special needs/on-demand services, fully fund community shuttles, connect multi-use paths, enhance school safety zones and fund a variety of city transportation projects. The plan includes transit, public works, municipal projects, innovation investments, planning, operations and maintenance, and administrative support services used to operationalize the Program.

In 2021, MAP rebranded with a new name, MAP Broward, to acknowledge the program's dedicated services to the Broward County community. Here is what’s in it for Hollywood!
