Rhode Island bakes cake to celebrate jetBlue Florida announcement; Miami Airport gets monorail link

Providence, Rhode Island, was so pleased about jetBlue’s route announcement from two Florida airports – Orlando and Ft Lauderdale that both are due to commence in late November – that this spectacular cake was baked to celebrate the event. Kathleen Hittner, Rhode Island Airport Corporation Board Chair, said: “This day has been a long time in the making as our staff has had countless meetings courting the airline over the years.”


A monorail-themed cake was baked to celebrate the opening of the new monorail station at Miami Airport, jointly celebrated by the airport and Miami-Dade Transit last week. Miami-Dade County Mayor, Carlos Gimenez, said: “This is a big step in the right direction for public transportation in our community. With today’s grand opening, our community joins global cities like London, Paris and Tokyo that already enjoy a rail link that directly connects their major airports to their urban cores.”

    I think you’ll find that there’s no monorail at Miami Airport.
    In September, the MIA Mover opened: it runs between terminal and train station. At the end of July, the extension to the Orange Line of the Metrorail opened, between the airport train station and downtown Miami.
    Neither is a monorail – defined by having only one rail supporting a train.
    Metrorail is a duorail (like most metros, two parallel rails support each train). MIA Mover has rubber tyres and runs on parallel slab tracks.
