Metrorail offers more frequent weekend service from MIA

MIAMI (March 04, 2016)

The Department of Transportation and Public Works (DTPW) is increasing its weekend Orange Line service to and from the Miami International Airport Metrorail station to better serve residents and visitors taking transit from MIA.

Starting this Saturday, March 5, 2016, Orange Line trains will depart from the MIA Station every 15 minutes instead of every 30 minutes.

“Our goal is to provide our residents and visitors with reliable mobility options. By increasing our Metrorail frequency to and from the airport, we are making transit more convenient to use, and hope to encourage more travelers and employees to save time and money by using transit,” said DTPW Director Alice Bravo.  

To plan a trip on Metrorail, and/or learn about Metrobus routes serving the MIA Station, the public can visit DTPW’s transit page. This site provides complete schedule information, station maps and more.

MIA employees can save even more on their transit trip when they sign up for the Department’s Corporate Discount program. This program allows participants to save on commuting costs through group discounts and pre-tax savings by paying for their monthly public transportation fare through a tax deduction from their employer.

Transit information is also available via the free Miami-Dade Transit Tracker app, or the Department’s mobile site. Transit users can also call 305-891-3131, Monday through Friday, from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., and on Saturdays, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., to speak with an agent.
