Nothing For Free?

Hold on there... looks like the county still has to approve the trolley plan, the money still hasn't been issued, it will be inadequate anyway, and the Marlins still won't help out.

Something For Free?

It's been a while since the Marlins offered the fans something for free.

And now we can announce to the world that they still haven't - the city has once again recognized a necessity, and stepped into it.

Miami commissioners have decided to dish out the dough to provide 'free' 'trolley' service between the (unnamed) stadium and Metrorail, Downtown, Overtown and Brickell.

Outside of game days this should make getting around town easier. But for game days all they will need to do is figure out a way for these vehicles to actually reach the ballpark through the jammed lines of expensive gas-guzzlers wrapped in layers around the stadium trying to squeeze into the garages by way of the tiny neighborhood access roads.
