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 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 bus passenger shelters either new or existing ones, trash containers and bicycle racks are well maintained, safe, clean, well illuminated, and have an attractive appearance. 

In addition, the existing 1200 bus passenger shelters within the 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 fall 2022, 202 bus shelters, 202 trash containers, 183 (cantilevers) new bus shelters illumination systems, and 194 bicycle racks have been installed with improved access.
