The FDOT in conjunction with Broward County will manage the construction of the Wave Streetcar system. Broward County will be the owner and operator when it is open to the public in early 2021 and has committed to 20 years of operating and maintenance funding.
The cost to build the Wave Streetcar system is estimated to be $144M and includes construction costs of the infrastructure and purchase of streetcar vehicles and spare parts. The remaining $51M includes costs for the planning and project development stage, including environmental impact assessment studies, preliminary and final engineering, purchase of right-of-way property, program management and administration, construction management, engineering and inspection services, construction performance bonuses, and other procurement costs.
The Wave Streetcar is expected to pass by stations every 10 to 15 minutes, depending on the day of the week and the time of day. More precise schedules will be published once the system is operational.

- Monday-Thursday – 6:00 am-12:00 am
- Friday – 6:00 am-1:30 am
- Saturday – 7:00 am-1:30am
