Metromover’s Brickell and Omni loops will close early Saturday, August 8, 2015, and open late on Sunday, August 9, 2015 in order to perform maintenance work.

Saturday night, the Brickell and Omni loops will close at 10:00 pm, and will reopen on Sunday at 8:00 am.  The Inner Loop will provide regularly scheduled service.

Free bus-shuttle service will be provided between all Metromover stations on the Brickell and Omni loops, from 9:30 pm until midnight on Saturday, and from 5:00 am until 8:00 am on Sunday. Buses are scheduled to arrive at approximately every 10 to 15 minutes.

MDT apologizes to riders for the inconvenience; however, in order for MDT to continue its accelerated efforts to improve reliability on the Metromover system, it is necessary to conduct maintenance work that involves closing the Metromover system temporarily and replacing trains with free shuttle buses. These closures allow MDT to complete its work faster and safer, while minimizing impact to users during peak-service hours.
