Daily Parking

Pay the one-day Metrorail parking fee at an EASY Card vending machine before tapping in at the fare gate.  Remember your parking space number. It’s painted on the pavement in each space.  At the EASY Card vending machine, select the “pay for parking” option from the menu on the screen. In addition to the $4.50 parking fee, the cost of one Metrorail ride will be deducted from your EASY Card or Ticket unless you have a time-based pass (1-Day, 7-Day or 1-Month Pass) or Golden or Patriot Passport.

Monthly Parking

You can buy a monthly parking permit at an EASY Card vending machine at any Metrorail station when purchasing a 1-Month Pass. Take the printed receipt to the station security officer to receive your parking permit. This permit must visibly hang from the vehicle’s rearview mirror whenever parked at a Metrorail station.  You also can obtain your parking permit at:

  • Transit Service Center
    Second level of the Government Center
    111 NW 1st Street, Miami, Florida 33128
  • Overtown Transit Village
    701 NW 1 Court – Ground Level- Suite 121
    Miami, Florida 33136

The permit can also be ordered online when purchased with a 1-Month Pass. Please note both items must be bought by the 22nd day of the prior month. Both the parking permit and the 1-Month Pass will be mailed to you.  Keep your transaction confirmation number.

Riders who use a 1-Month Pass, the Golden Passport, or the Patriot Passport can buy a $11.25 monthly parking permit (with a valid driver’s license). With the permit, there is no $4.50 daily charge to park. However, the permit must be displayed at all times on the rearview mirror and be visible to the parking enforcement officer.

Note: The monthly parking permit is not valid at privately owned or municipal parking lots and garages.

Parking Tips

  • Park in marked spaces only, head first. No back-in parking.
  • Hang your monthly parking permit from the rearview mirror. The permit must be visible to enforcement personnel.
  • If paying for only one day of parking, there's no need to return to your car to place your receipt in the window. Monthly parking permits must be displayed on your car's rearview mirror.
  • Parking citations will be issued to anyone who violates parking rules (located on the back of the permit) or fails to pay the $4.50 daily fee. Paid parking is available seven days a week.
  • Monthly parking permits are only for the use of riders who buy a 1-Month Pass or Golden Passport or Patriot Passport users.
  • Miami-Dade County and Miami-Dade Transit are not responsible for damage, theft, or vandalism to vehicles or their contents.
  • Riders with a state-issued parking permit or license plate for people with disabilities may park free in spaces designated for disabled riders.
