Miami Commissioners approved a new trolley system Monday that will take commuters to several big places in the city.

The $20 million project will launch on March 1 and will include a route to the new Marlins ballpark.  That should make parking at the ballpark a little easier to handle.

Other stops will include the courthouse, Jackson Memorial Hospital and the Civic Center metrorail station.

The city says the trolley will be free for at least the first year.
