Miami-Dade Transit to accommodate ‘Race for the Cure’ participants

Race to take place on Saturday, October 20, 2012 at Bayfront Park


(Miami, October 17, 2012) – Miami-Dade Transit will provide additional Metromover service the morning of Saturday, October 20, 2012 to accommodate the thousands of participants that are expected to turn out for the Susan G. Komen ‘Race for the Cure’ event taking place at Bayfront Park in downtown Miami.

To get to Bayfront Park, ride Metrorail to the Government Center Station, then transfer to Metromover’s Inner Loop. Exit at the Bayfront Park Metromover station. Patrons can also transfer to Metromover from the Brickell Metrorail station. From the Brickell Metromover station, take the northbound Metromover train to Bayfront Park station.

Metromover, which is free for all patrons, will increase service to its weekday levels. Metrorail, which costs $2 per trip, will provide normal weekend service.

Those planning to take Metrorail to the race are encouraged to pre-purchase an EASY Card or EASY Ticket and load it with $4 (the price of a round-trip on Metrorail) before the event on Saturday to avoid crowds and unnecessary waiting in line. EASY Cards and EASY Tickets can be purchased at the following locations:
