After a 28-year wait, locals and tourists alike will be able to take a ride on the Metrorail from practically anywhere in the city, all the way to Miami International Airport.
The brand new Orange Line running from Dadeland South in Kendall to M.I.A. will allow passengers to avoid the usual highway traffic by utilizing the city’s public transit system. If you’re traveling from anywhere north of the airport, you can hop on the Green Line at any of the stops from Palmetto, Okeechobee, Hialeah, Northside, MLK or Brownsville to Earlington Heights where you can then switch over to the Orange Line and head straight for the airport.
Once passengers reach the airport station at the giant Miami Intermodal Center just east of the airport, they can hop on the MIA mover and ride straight to their terminal.
The super-efficient train system runs 7-days a week from 5am to midnight making stops at 21 different locations around Miami. For more information on how to make it from train to plane visit www.miamidade.gov/transit or download the Miami Dade Transit Tracker for free on your iPhone.
