(MIAMI, Sept. 2, 2015) – Miami-Dade Transit services will be temporarily impacted today, Sept. 2, 2015, and tomorrow, Sept. 3, during a visit from United States Vice President Joe Biden.

For security reasons, several Metrorail and Metromover stations will need to stop service momentarily during the afternoon and evening hours today, and during the afternoon on Thursday, Sept. 3. Metrobus service may also be impacted.

Miami-Dade Transit is asking passengers to be patient and plan accordingly.  Metrorail and Metromover will cease operations intermittently for as long as 25 to 30 minutes.
