There are about 8,000 bus stops throughout Miami-Dade County. But Miami-Dade Transit is only responsible for 3,300 -- municipalities are responsible for the approximately 5,000 that fall within city limits. Of the bus stops in unincorporated Miami-Dade, only about a third have a shelter.
Albert Hernandez is assistant director for the Division of Engineering, Planning and Development at Miami-Dade Transit.
He says the lack of shelters is apparently not due to money.
