Transportation in Miami - Miami Metrorail
The Metrorail offers transportation in Miami through an elevated rapid transit system that covers a 24.4-mile track. Locals and tourists alike make use of the Miami-Dade Metrorail, which services Kendall, South Miami, Coral Gables, downtown Miami, the Civic Center and the Jackson Memorial Hospital area, Brownsville, Liberty City, Hialeah, and Medley in the northwestern portion of the county. Tri-Rail/Metrorail connections also make it possible to reach Broward and Palm Beach counties through the transfer station. For access to or from the airport, individuals only need to use the MIA Mover, which takes you right into the airport.
Access and Parking
Approximately every mile along the path of the transit system, you can find an access point to the Metrorail. The stations are easily accessible to those riding the bus or pedestrians. Parking is available at the Metrorail stations, either at a surface lot or parking garage. The parking cost is $4.00 per day for any day of the week, including holidays.
Individuals with disabilities should use the handicapped accessible stations of Dadeland South, Dadeland North, South Miami, Douglas Road, Brickell, Government Center, Civic Center, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Plaza, Tri-Rail and Okeechobee. The two seats beside the doors on every car are designated for disabled individuals or senior citizens.
On northbound trains, the Public Address System uses a female voice to announce the direction of travel. A male voice announces on the southbound trains. Operators will announce the next station when leaving a station and when approaching the station. The tactile tiles inform visually-impaired passengers when they are approaching the edge of the platform. Wheelchair-bound passengers should enter the train car through the first set of doors for easy access to the reserved wheelchair space.
