Miami is a diverse city with a fantastic mix of cultures, communities and generations from around the globe.  Miami’s style and energy ensures a memorable time. Whether you’re worshipping the sun, busy spotting celebrities, appreciating the art or fueling up on Cuban cuisine, the Magic City really has something for everyone.

Travel to Miami

Two airports service the Miami area: Miami International Airport (MIA) and Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport (FLL)

The Miami International Airport is a busy place, given that the city is such a tourist destination, and the airport is also a hub for travel to South and Central America. Thankfully, the airport is close to the city, and it’s just a 15-minute commute to downtown.

Fort Lauderdale is Miami’s neighbor to the north by approximately 30 miles. If you’re flying in or out of Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport or simply wish to explore more of South Florida during your visit, there are a handful of transportation options to get you to Miami from Fort Lauderdale.

Public Transport 

Trolleys

The city also has several free trolley routes connecting popular areas along Biscayne Bay, Brickell, Coconut Grove, Downtown Miami and Wynwood. Click here to get the routes and schedules. Miami Beach, Coral Gables, the City of Doral and Miami Gardens also have a trolley system. To find out those routes, please click here.

Metrobus

Metrobus, Miami’s public bus line, operates more than 95 routes with close to 1,000 buses covering 29 million miles per year, 365 days a year. If you can’t get there with the Metrorail, hop on one of Miami’s Metrobus routes that serve areas of the city the rail doesn’t, such as Miami Beach, Key Biscayne, Homestead or even as far as Fort Lauderdale or the Florida Keys. Designed to connect with Metrorail and Metromover, Miami-Dade County’s bus system serves all major shopping, entertainment and cultural centers.

Metromover

Miami Metromover is the 4.4-mile, electric-powered people mover that loops around Downtown Miami and Brickell and also connects you to the Miami Metrorail and Miami bus lines.

The Metromover offers three routes or “loops”: the Omni loop, the Inner loop and the Brickell loop. It runs from 5 a.m. to midnight, seven days a week with trains arriving every 90 seconds to 3 minutes depending on the time of day. Check out the Metromover station map for all the stops and connections available. The best thing about using this public transport option is that everybody rides free on the Metromover. There are no cards or tickets to buy, just wait for the car to come around and jump on.

Metrorail

Metrorail is Miami’s quick and easy 25-mile elevated transportation system to get you to all parts of the urban core of Miami from 5:00 a.m. to midnight, seven days a week. Launched in the 1980s, this rail line is the hub for Miami’s inner-city transit and an easy way to get around. To make traveling around town even more comfortable and efficient, check out the Metrorail’s schedule or download the GO Miami-Dade Transit app to plan your day.

Taxis

If a taxicab is your preferred method of transportation, here are some tips to help you plan your trip. In general, it’s important to make sure you hire a licensed taxi service. Check for the word “taxi” or “cab” displayed on the vehicle, as well as a prominently advertised telephone number. The taxi’s license number, driver’s license number and the driver’s rate card must also be displayed. The rate in Miami starts at $2.95 for the first 1/6 mile and $.85 for each additional 1/6 mile until 1 mile then $.40 for each 1/6 mile after that. Waiting time is $.40 per minute (or $24.00 per hour). You’ll also be responsible for any tolls during your trip. Most Miami cabs have a credit card reader, but it’s important to confirm with the driver. If you prefer to pay with plastic, make sure you inquire before you hop in.

Lyft and Uber

Lyft and Uber are car services that connect riders and drivers via a downloadable app for your smart phone. It’s one of the most preferred methods of traveling around the city for locals and visitors alike.
