(MIAMI, June 28, 2013) – This Independence Day, Thursday, July 4, 2013, Miami-Dade Transit will operate a Sunday schedule. Service hours are as follows:
METROBUS: All bus routes will run on a Sunday schedule. Therefore weekday routes, such as the I-95 Express and the Kendall Cruiser, will not provide service on Thursday, July 4th.
