Miami Transportation Florida


Miami Florida is a fast-paced, cool and cutting edge city where both the chic elite and the average Joe and Jane relax and play. Miami offers shopping and entertainment that fits all tastes, styles, and pocketbooks. Miami offers culturally varied cuisine, endless sporting and recreational activities, and sparkling beaches beyond compare.

Other local airports available that aren’t as busy include Fort Lauderdale Hollywood International (FLL), and Palm Beach International Airport (PBI). Transportation to and from the Airport includes Metered taxi service, van or limo, or the SuperShuttle (www.supershuttle.com) which is less expensive than a taxi.

Miami offers the visitors a multitude of transportation options within the city. Miami offers the Metrorail – a high-speed commuter train that travels north-south from downtown Miami to the suburbs. It is a great way to get from the outskirts of the city to downtown – but don’t depend on the Metrorail to get anywhere else. The Metromover is also an elevated line that circles the downtown area. This connects Bayside with the Downtown area, but like the Metrorail it will not take visitors to most of the attractions or shopping areas. Riding the Metromover is free – and offers a beautiful view from the height of the rails.

The bus system in Miami can be difficult, as the waits at bus stops can be quite long. However if you don’t mind the wait, buses do stop at or near most major attractions and shopping areas. Maps are available by mail by calling 305-770-3131.

Taxis are available throughout the city, and are a good option for travelers who would prefer not to drive, or are going to be staying within the South Beach District. Many frequently traveled routes have fixed rates. Cab companies available include Central (305-532-5555), and Yellow Cab (305-444-4444).

Since Miami Florida is so spread out – the ideal mode of transportation is by car. Hotels, restaurants and shopping areas are far apart, so make sure to research where you want to go and buy a good map of the downtown and greater Miami roads. (www.downtownmiami.com).

Car Rentals are available everywhere in Miami, and offer the cheapest rental rates in the world. Keep quarters on hand, as most parking is by meter – or buy a parking card at the Chamber of commerce or any Publix grocery store.
