You might call it an understatement to say that traffic is an issue in South Florida. Miami-Dade Mayor Carlos Gimenez put it this way:

"There are two man-made things you can see from space. One is the Great Wall of China. The other one is the Dade-Broward line."

On Tuesday, a panel of county and state transportation officials came together at the Greater Miami Chamber of Commerce to discuss the plans for All Aboard Florida's passenger rail service.

The idea is to connect downtown Miami to Orlando's airport, with stops in Fort Lauderdale and West Palm Beach -- with hopes of building more businesses near the stations and collecting more tourism dollars.
