Miami-Dade Transit extends Metrorail and Metromover hours for the Ultra Music Festival weekend

MIAMI (March 15, 2017)

Every year for three days in March, Bayfront Park gets reimagined as the mecca for electronic dance music. Ultra Music Festival brings eight stages and dozens of performances to a crowd of over 100,000 attendees.

In order to avoid increased congestion on the roadways, the Department of Transportation and Public Works (DTPW) is offering service on its Metrorail and Metromover until 2 a.m. every night during the festival weekend.

Metrorail and Metromover already run until 2 a.m. on Friday and Saturday nights every week, but will extend its Sunday hours during Ultra weekend for your convenience.

Festival-goers are encouraged to leave their cars behind and ride with Miami-Dade Transit. Rail and mover service will start at 5 a.m. and run through 2 a.m. the following morning on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, Mar. 24-26, 2017.

Parking at any of DTPW’s Metrorail garages or surface lots costs only $4.50 for the entire day. Riders can transfer to the Metromover (it’s free) at the Government Center stop to get the best access to the event. Take the Metromover to the Bayfront Park Station.

Select Metrobus routes will be affected during the festival weekend; visit www.miamidade.gov/transit.

Since Ultra is an outdoor event, guests are advised to dress comfortably and stay hydrated. For more information on Ultra Music Festival, visit ultramusicfestival.com.

Don’t forget to download the Miami-Dade Transit Tracker app by visiting www.miamidade.gov/transit/transit-tracker-app and plan your trip or track your ride in real-time.
