Metromover temporarily closes Omni Loop to relocate utilities

MIAMI (April 28, 2017)

Beginning at 2 a.m. on Sunday, April 30, 2017, and for up to seven days, the Metromover Omni Loop will temporarily be closed while crews work on relocating utilities.

The Metromover Inner and Brickell loops will not be affected and will provide regular service.

Free bus-shuttle service will be provided between all Metromover stations on the Omni Loop during the temporary closure. Buses are scheduled to arrive at approximately every 10 to 15 minutes. A map of where shuttle buses pick-up and drop-off patrons is available at MDT’s Metromover web page.
