Air urban mobility set to take off in Miami

My list


Parking Authority and the Miami-Dade County Department of Transportation and Public Works are already thinking about how to integrate emerging urban air mobility into the transportation ecosystem in Miami.

Air mobility of passengers is closer than we might think, “it is something that would be here within the next two to three years,” said Alejandra “Alex” Argudin, parking authority CEO, who has deep involvement in seeking opportunities and solutions on urban mobility.

Air mobility will require places to land in Miami, and that is where the cities and public authorities play a role, she said.

“The interest for us would be visualizing the possibility of, in the future, being able to equip our roofs of one of the garages we build, for example, to be a takeoff or landing pad for aircrafts. Alternately, we would have to study how to retrofit our structures to see if the structures would allow for the weight to put a landing pad,” Ms. Argudin said.
