(MIAMI, April 25, 2014) – As of this afternoon, April 25, 2014, Route A (101) service to mainland Miami via the Venetian Causeway has been restored. However, Miami-Dade Transit will continue to provide modified bus service of this route across the Venetian Causeway due to the weight restrictions on the Causeway.
The Route A’s new alignment has the Adrienne Arsht Center Metromover station as the western most point, with the intersection of 20th Street and West Avenue as the most eastern point of the route’s alignment. The newly modified route now also has a stop on 20th Street, between Purdy and West avenues in Miami Beach.
Route A’s modified service is being provided between 7:00 a.m. and approximately 9:30 a.m. in the mornings, and between 2:00 p.m. and approximately 6:50 p.m. in the evenings, seven days a week. Bus service frequency is approximately every 35 minutes.
A map of the modified Route A is attached.
“I want to thank Mayor Carlos A. Gimenez and County Commissioners Audrey Edmonson and Sally Heyman for their leadership in supporting the continued operation of this route. I also want thank the residents of the Venetian islands for their patience,” said Miami-Dade Transit Director Ysela Llort.
