Miami-Dade Transit apologizes for the inconvenience; however, in order to continue its accelerated effort to improve reliability on the Metromover system, Miami-Dade Transit sometimes conducts maintenance work that involves the temporary closing of the Metromover system and replaces trains with free shuttle buses. This allows MDT to complete its work safer and faster, while minimizing impact to users during peak-service hours.
