Miami-Dade Transit riders deserve reliability, reduced delays, and enhanced communication. As such, the Miami-Dade County Department of Transportation and Public Works (DTPW) is actively working on upgrading the Metromover, a free elevated people mover system that operates seven days a week in downtown Miami, Omni, and Brickell areas.   

Metromover has been in service for over 30 years, first opening to the public in April 1986. While the system has expanded and vehicles have been replaced, major subsystems responsible for keeping the Automated People Mover (APM) functioning have met their design life spans.

Metromover riders have experienced frequent service disruptions on all three system loops. DTPW recognizes the need for an aggressive approach to replacing and repairing these subsystems to ensure reliability and accessibility.

On May 4, 2021, the Miami-Dade County Board of County Commissioners adopted a Resolution to award a contract to Bombardier Transportation (Holdings) USA, Inc. for purchasing a Metromover Comprehensive Wayside System Overhaul.

In addition, once the track work is completed, the system can easily accept new vehicles and DTPW will start the procurement process for new Metromover cars.

This project is just one of the ways DTPW works to provide a better riding experience and encourage more Miami-Dade County residents to take advantage of Transit’s extensive transportation network.
