Miami-Dade Transit introduces bus service improvements

MIAMI ( November 16, 2018 )

Starting this Sunday, Nov. 18, 2018, Miami-Dade Transit (MDT) will adjust several Metrobus routes and introduce a new route to improve efficiency and augment service, particularly in the southern end of Miami-Dade County.

Miami-Dade Transit adjusted five routes -- 38 Busway Max, 77, 88, 115 Mid-North Beach Connection, the Cutler Bay Local (Route 200) -- and introduced a new route, the 248 Princeton Circulator. A description of each of these adjustments is found on MDT’s website.

The new 248 Princeton Circulator will provide local, weekday service, from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m., and will run from Cutler Bay to Naranja via SW 112 Ave., SW 248 St. and South Dixie Highway. Each trip on the Princeton Circulator is only 25 cents.

In addition, the Department will restore midday service on Route 115 Mid-North Beach Connection and will add Sunday service on the Cutler Bay Local, Route 200.

Also, in an effort to provide an even quicker commute for transit riders traveling to and from Florida City, MDT is now offering nonstop service on Route 34 Express via Florida’s Turnpike during the following hours:

• Southbound morning trips direct to SW 344 St. depart from Dadeland South Station between 5:50 a.m. and 6:50 a.m. All trips are via the Florida Turnpike.

• Northbound afternoon trips to Dadeland South Station depart from SW 344 St. between 4:40 p.m. and 5:50 p.m. All trips are via the Florida Turnpike.

And, starting Nov. 26, 2018, Route 39 Express will also offer nonstop service via Florida Turnpike during the following hours:

• Southbound morning trips direct to South Dade Government Center depart from Dadeland South Station between 5:59 a.m. and 7:44 a.m.

• Northbound afternoon trips direct to Dadeland South Station depart from South Dade Government Center between 4:30 p.m. and 6:15 p.m.
