Baylink may finally be on track after a county vote yesterday.

Genting and BYD are promising they will build a monorail from Miami to Miami Beach quickly and inexpensively, and county commissioners voted yesterday to move ahead with a bidding process for the transit system.

Here are new details revealed yesterday by Mayor Carlos Gimenez, the Herald, and reporter Doug Hanks:

Station locations

On the Miami side, Genting is offering its property as a station location. In exchange for the site, the company wants a land swap for unknown property.

The Genting station is being a “commencement point,” likely meaning no extension into Wynwood or Midtown.

In Miami Beach, no station location or locations have been revealed. However, Mayor Dan Gelber released a letter last week generally opposing the bid, especially if it is linked to a casino.

Cost

The system will cost around $400 million to build.
