Passengers paying with cash will need to pay the full fare every time they board a bus. Transfers are valid only when using an EASY Card or EASY Ticket. Miami-Dade Transit strongly recommends using an EASY Card or EASY Ticket if your trip requires transfers.
If you are transferring to Metrorail, you will need either an EASY Card or EASY Ticket to ride on Metrorail. EASY Cards and EASY Tickets are sold at all Metrorail stations. The EASY Card ticket vending machines accept cash or credit cards (Visa, MasterCard or American Express).Back to Top

Is there a route from the airport to the Keys?
To travel to the Upper Keys on public transit requires taking Metrorail and two buses.
At the airport, take the MIA Mover to the Miami International Airport (MIA) Metrorail station.
Before boarding the Metrorail, patrons will need to purchase an EASY Card or EASY Ticket and load it with a pass or cash value to pay their Metrorail and Metrobus fare. These can be purchased on the fourth floor or “Connector Level” of the Miami International Airport station.
Once they have purchased their transit fare, patrons should take the train to the Dadeland South Metrorail station.
Once patrons exit the Dadeland South Metrorail station, they need to board a Route 38 (Busway MAX) which will take them to Florida City. Transit users will be dropped off at the Florida City Wal-Mart, where they must transfer to the Route 301 (Dade-Monroe Express). The Dade-Monroe Express bus travels only to Mile Marker 50, Marathon.
Please note that Metrobus passengers paying with cash will need to pay the full fare every time they board a bus. Free transfers are valid only when using an EASY Card or EASY Ticket. Metrobus fareboxes do not provide change and do not accept pennies.
When using an EASY Card or EASY Ticket, you are eligible to have up to two transfers deducted from your card or ticket during a three-hour period while going in the same direction of travel.Back to Top
