MetroConnect - our improved and expanded, free, on-demand, shared ride service - will augment our Better Bus system, providing support for some riders where needed for last mile connections.

The reimagining of Metrobus service is creating better connections and an improved rider experience across Miami-Dade County. The new bus network dramatically increases transit access to jobs, education, healthcare and quality of life and uplifts our most vulnerable, including seniors, with significantly better services.

The initial phase was deployed on July 24, and Phase II, including newly added connections to the MetroConnect (Formerly GO Connect) on-demand service, was deployed on Nov.13, 2023. 

Riders are encouraged to become familiar with the new Trip Planning Tool, system map, and other information on this page to better plan your commute on the new Metrobus service network.

  • The number of low-wage jobs that are near frequent transit service on Saturdays will more than double from 17% today to 42%
  • The number of minority residents near frequent transit will more than double from 13% to 30%
  • Weekend service will increase to near the same levels as weekdays, for most local routes
  • The new network will bring frequent transit service to more than a quarter million low-income residents, more than double the 119,000 who are near frequent transit today
  • The new network will bring frequent service near almost 60% of households without cars; that’s 20,000 additional households without cars near more frequent service
  • The number of African American residents near frequent transit nearly quadruples, from 43,000 to nearly 169,000 in November
