Transit services during the Fourth of July 2018 holiday
The Department of Transportation and Public Works (DTPW) will run a Sunday schedule for Metrorail, Metromover and Metrobus on Wednesday, July 4, 2018, during Independence Day.
For the complete Sunday schedule and other information, please visit the DTPW website. DTPW recommends downloading the free Miami-Dade Transit Tracker app to plan a trip on transit. The app is the best tool to help transit riders plan their trip and track their ride.
TAKING TRANSIT TO FOURTH OF JULY CELEBRATIONS IN DOWNTOWN MIAMI
Those attending the Fourth of July celebrations in downtown Miami are encouraged to use transit to reach their destination. Metrorail stations located between Dadeland South and Earlington Heights, which are served by both the Orange and Green lines, will have service every 15 minutes. Passengers headed to Miami International Airport (MIA) on the Orange Line, and those traveling on the Green Line north of Earlington Heights, will have Metrorail service every 30 minutes. Transit riders attending the festivities in downtown Miami on July 4th, are advised to be on the platform following the festivities in downtown Miami to board the last Metrorail train, which will leave the Government Center station at midnight.
PAYING FOR TRANSIT RIDES AND PARKING
To avoid long lines at EASY Card ticket vending machines, transit riders may want to consider loading an EASY Card or EASY Ticket prior to taking transit on July 4th. Also available is the EASY Pay app, which allows anyone to turn their smartphone into a mobile ticket. Visit EASY Pay page for more information. Transit riders can also pay for parking via their mobile devices with the PayByPhone cashless app.
All DTPW administrative offices, including those for Golden Passport and Special Transportation Service (STS), will be closed on Wednesday for the holiday. However, STS customers can still call the STS reservation number (305-871-1111) to reserve or cancel an STS trip.
