The Miami-Dade County Department of Transportation and Public Works (DTPW), which operates the 15th largest public transit system in the U.S. and the largest transit agency in Florida, selected The Weinbach Group to handle marketing communications, including public relations and creative campaign development. The Miami public relations firm, which has operated in South Florida continuously since 1987, will promote the Department's growing public transportation system, including the launch of new bus routes, new transportation infrastructure, and novel public works projects, like the Underline, a 10-mile linear park and trail that runs under Metrorail's elevated tracks.

Among its first tasks, the Miami-based marketing communications firm will develop a comprehensive, strategic communications plan to help the Department effectively disseminate information to its diverse audiences and to promote departmental assets within the public transit system.

"The Department of Transportation and Public Works' lofty vision is to be the world's best provider of transportation options, which is supported by its far-reaching strategic plan," said Juan C. Mendieta, chief external affairs officer for the Department. "To be successful, the implementation of a comprehensive strategic communications plan is also a must, and we are pleased to partner with The Weinbach Group, a proven leader in this space, to develop and activate this plan to harmonize and innovate all outbound communications, so residents and key stakeholders are part of the process."

While The Weinbach Group has a national reputation as an award-winning healthcare marketing firm, the Miami ad agency has a number of local clients, including major public sector accounts like Miami-Dade County's Water and Sewer Department and the Miami-Dade County Department of Cultural Affairs, which runs the Dennis C. Moss Cultural Arts Center and the Miami-Dade County Auditorium. The firm also served as advertising agency of record for Miami-Dade County's Public Health Trust and Jackson Health System.

"We have been part of the South Florida business community for almost four decades," said Daniel Weinbach, president and CEO of The Weinbach Group. "Over that time, we have seen Miami explode into one of the world's most talked-about and visited global cities. Now, as the communications firm for the Department of Transportation and Public Works, we have the opportunity to earn Miami's public transit system the attention it deserves as a source of pride for the entire community."

The Weinbach Group team will work closely with Miami-Dade's Communications and Customer Experience Department (CCED), the internal marketing communications agency that oversees advertising, website development and maintenance, social media, and public relations for nearly all of Miami-Dade County's departments and divisions.
