(Miami-Dade County, FL) -- 
On Tuesday, May 29, Miami-Dade Transit (MDT) will launch a new seven-day transit pass targeting Greater Miami’s lucrative tourist market. The 7-Day Visitor Passport will entitle passengers to seven consecutive days of unlimited rides on Metrobus and Metrorail.

The $19 pass will come with a countywide transit system map including detailed maps of Miami Beach and downtown Miami showing visitors how to get to numerous tourist attractions and destinations using Metrobus, Metrorail and Metromover. A scratch-off calendar will let passengers choose the seven consecutive days they wish to use the pass.

The 7-Day Visitor Passport is tailored to the needs of Greater Miami’s more than 10 million annual visitors. It will allow tourists to save substantial amounts of money by avoiding rental car, gas and parking expenses.

“The 7-Day Visitor Passport offers an easy and inexpensive way to travel around Greater Miami and the Beaches by using our system,” MDT Interim Director Harpal Kapoor said.  “It offers substantial savings and easy access to sightseeing, and our brochure map provides the information to get you there.”

The pass will initially be sold at Miami International Airport, four visitor centers, select hotels and businesses and MDT’s transit service centers.
