Discover Miami’s public transportation 

With several public transportation options, Miami offers affordable, convenient, and round-the-clock service. 


Miami’s Metrorail is a 25-mile above-ground rail system, offering the quickest and most affordable transportation to destinations including Miami International Airport, downtown Miami, the Civic Center, the Jackson Memorial Hospital area, and Northwest Miami-Dade. 

The metro rail map is easy to navigate and you can download it right on your phone through the Go Miami Dade Transit app. Fares start as low as $2.25. Use the Easy Card and you can enjoy unlimited daily rides once you cap out at $5.65.

Metro Mover

The Metro Mover is the best public transportation option for getting around downtown Miami and Brickell. This free service has three loops: Omni Loop, Inner Loop, and Brickell Loop.


The Metrobus system services over 90 routes that the Metro Rail and Metro Mover do not access, including Homestead, Key Biscayne, and Miami Beach. You’ll also be able to get to other destinations like hospitals, schools, major shopping centers, and entertainment locations. 

Bus fares start at $2.25 per trip, but using the Easy Card or Easy Ticket can help you save on fare costs. Use the Metrobus system map and check individual route schedules to plan your trip around Miami. 

Benefits of using public transportation

Residents and visitors can count on these public transportation services for convenience and affordability. Buses and trains are always on time, fare costs are low, and you can look forward to having a designated driver if you want to go out and enjoy the city. 

Cons of using public transportation

There are a few important things to consider when using public transportation:

  • Depending on your destination, you may have to deal with several stops, which can prolong your overall trip
  • Buses and trains follow a rigid schedule, and if you’re not there on time, you will have to wait to catch the next one or plan an alternate route
  • During rush hour or peak transit periods, you might have to deal with wait times to board, crowds, lack of seating, and other annoyances

Taxi cab or rideshare options

Taxis and rideshare services have more privacy than public transportation. They offer pick up and drop off exactly where you need it, and are generally more convenient, especially for short distances. 

Drawbacks to consider include: 

  • They tend to cost a bit more than public transportation
  • If you are traveling with a large party, these services won’t always have enough space to travel together
  • You likely will be getting into the vehicle with a driver you don’t know, who may or may not have been fully vetted by their employer
