Bus Passenger Shelter Program

The Bus Passenger Shelter Program is part of the department’s strategic vision to operate and grow a safer, cleaner, quicker, and more connected transit system.

The program consists of the installation of new bus passenger shelters, new trash containers, new bicycle racks, improved pedestrian accessibility to and from bus shelters, and a complete renovation of the existing bus passenger shelters inventory installed within the boundaries of Miami-Dade County’s Metrobus service area.  

Coming soon! A new interactive map highlighting new and future shelter locations.

Program goals

The program will ensure that all transit amenities such as bus passenger shelters either new ones or existing ones, trash containers and bicycle racks are well maintained, safe, clean, have an attractive appearance, and are well illuminated.

Under this program, a total of 360 new bus passenger shelters and 360 trash containers will be installed, as well as 800 bicycle racks. All 360 new shelters will have fully accessible pathways to and from the bus stop.

In addition, the existing 1200 bus passenger shelters previously installed within the boundaries of Metrobus service area will be refurbished to match the look and comfort of the new shelters being installed.

These new transit amenities and accessibility improvements will be completed by summer of 2023.

As of spring 2022, 135 bus shelters, 135 trash containers, 135 new bus shelters illumination systems, and 134 bicycle racks have been installed with improved access.
