Transportation

Besides having your own car, Miami has several options for getting around town and to the airport and beaches.

Metrorail

The MetroRail provides service to Miami International Airport (MIA) and runs from Kendall through South Miami, Coral Gables, and downtown Miami; to the Civic Center/Jackson Memorial Hospital area; and to Brownsville, Liberty City, Hialeah, and Medley in northwest Miami-Dade, with connections to Broward and Palm Beach counties at the Tri-Rail/Metrorail transfer station. The Metrorail operates from 5 a.m. to midnight seven days a week. To ride Metrorail, you will need an EASY Card or EASY Ticket as the fare gates do not accept cash. Students can purchase discounted EASY Cards at the Security and Parking Office in Dominion Parking Garage, Suite 145 (1051 NW 14th St, Miami, FL 33136).

All Metro buses are equipped with bike racks on the front and do not require a permit. Make sure to plan your route and monitor the clock if you choose to take a CitiBike on a bus.

MetroBus

The MetroBus consists of 95 routes across Miami-Dade which connect every part to the MetroRail and beaches. Several bus routes operate 24 hours a day and three routes provide overnight service between 11 p.m. and 6 a.m. See individual route schedules for hours of operations. EASY Card, EASY Ticket, and cash (no pennies) are all acceptable forms of payment.

Metromover

The free MetroMover service operates from 5 a.m. to midnight seven days a week. There are several different loops (Omni Loop, Brickell Loop, and Inner Loop) that cover most of downtown Miami. Metromover cars arrive every 90 seconds during rush hours and every three minutes during off-peak hours.
