    Boarding for People with Disabilities

    In accordance with the Department of Transportation's Americans with Disabilities Act (DOT ADA) Key Station rules, the following ten Metrorail stations are readily accessible to and usable by individuals with disabilities, including those who use wheelchairs:

    • Dadeland South
    • Dadeland North
    • South Miami
    • Douglas Road
    • Brickell
    • Government Center
    • Civic Center
    • Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Plaza
    • Tri-Rail
    • Okeechobee

    A Public Address System (PAS) announces the Metrorail direction of travel; a female voice announces the northbound train, and a male voice announces the southbound train.  Train Operators announce the next station both when leaving from a station where a stop has just been made and then again while approaching the next station.

    The tactile tiles alert customers who are blind and visually impaired that they are getting close to the platform edge. For direct access to the reserved wheelchair space, enter a train car through the first set of doors. Other passengers with disabilities and senior citizens will find seats reserved for them next to every door.

    Priority Seating:  Two seats next to every door rail car are designated as priority seats for persons with disabilities and senior citizens.  Federal law requires that operators request other passengers to vacate priority seating when needed.  DO NOT sit in these areas unless you are elderly or are a person with a disability.

    Paying Your Fare

    Cost per trip is $2.25.

    To ride Metrorail, you will need an EASY Card or EASY Ticket as the new faregates do not accept cash. To obtain an EASY Card or EASY Ticket, walk over to one of the EASY Card vending machines located at the entrance of each rail station. Obtain and load a card or ticket using cash or a valid credit card. Then use the card or ticket to pay your fare at the faregate, by tapping the EASY Card or EASY Ticket on the electronic Metrorail fare gates.

    Call Buttons

    Every Metrorail car has three call buttons, which are located at the wheelchair space next to the first set of doors, next to the clear plastic panels, and next to the second and third set of doors. Call buttons may be used to alert the operator when you need additional time to leave the train. Call the operator several stations before you are ready to exit the train. You may also use the call buttons in case of an emergency.

Federal law requires that other passengers sitting in the securement areas move to other available seats or stand when a person using a mobility aide boards the bus. DO NOT sit in any of the Mobility Aide Securement Areas if you are elderly or a person with a disability. You will have to move to another seat or stand if a person using a mobility aid boards the bus.
