Hailed as a first-of-its-kind innovation, Miami-Dade County Mayor Carlos A. Giménez and the Board of County Commissioners approved a partnership with CIVIQ Smartscapes to implement the nation’s first fully integrated smart city ecosystem throughout Miami Dade. CIVIQ’s goal is to deliver the best “Citizen Mobility Experience” as a model of people-centered technology that engages citizens and provides state-of-the-art access to city services. The first phase of Miami-Dade’s urban transformation will roll out over the next 3 months— CIVIQ will install and maintain up to 300 interactive digital WayPoints, which will include free public Wi-Fi, over 1,000 Wi-Fi devices in public transit vehicles, and 51 additional Wi-Fi devices for transit stations.

Miami-Dade’s investment will dramatically increase access for all residents and visitors.  CIVIQ’s people-centered technology provides free high-speed public Wi-Fi for easy access to communications networks, timely transportation schedules to improve citizen mobility and emergency alerts to enhance safety and security throughout the community. CIVIQ supports the county’s mission to help more people connect—to each other and to critical city services. These new devices and services are much more than a new way to access the internet,” commented Alice N. Bravo P.E., Miami-Dade Director of Transportation & Public Works. “Greater connectivity in the transit system means increased efficiency, less downtime, and overall better experiences for our passengers. This is one of the single largest tech upgrades, providing real-time benefits to residents of Miami-Dade I’ve seen in my years here,” said Angel Petisco, Miami-Dade Chief Information Officer. “I look forward to working closely with CIVIQ to bring the best in urban technology to the county, the benefits of which I have no doubt will be widespread and multifarious.” Read More
