I'm surprised. I haven't spent a great deal of time in the "downtown" area of Miami, but I have lived in both Orlando and Tampa, and spent quite a lot of time in Ft. Myers and Jacksonville, and found the public transportation in all of these places to be sadly lacking.
It's one of my relatively few complaints about Florida. The whole Tampa Bay metro area, especially, could benefit HUGELY from better public transportation infrastructure, but there's too much in-fighting between all of the self-centered politicians around here for that to ever happen.
