Getting around Miami with Metrobus, Miami’s public bus line.

Metrobus operates more than 95 routes with close to 1,000 buses covering 29 million miles per year, 365 days a year. If you can’t get there with the Metrorail, hop on one of the metro bus routes that serve areas of the city the rail doesn’t, such as Miami Beach, Key Biscayne, Homestead or even as far as Fort Lauderdale or the Florida Keys.

Designed to connect with Metrorail and Metromover, Miami-Dade County’s bus system serves all major shopping, entertainment and cultural centers. There’s even an express bus service that provides a quick and easy option for commuters during the hectic rush hour and a Marlins Shuttle all season long from Culmer Metrorail Station so baseball fans can catch a world-class baseball game while in town.

Bus rides start at $2.25 per trip and the easiest way to pay for a bus ride is with a rechargeable EASY Card or EASY Ticket. Visitors can purchase these online and at select stations. Some bus routes operate 24 hours a day, but check individual route schedules for hours of operation and specific schedules just in case.

If you’re staying in Miami Beach and are heading to Miami International Airport, Miami Beach Airport Express provides an inexpensive transit connection to the airport from Miami Beach. This express bus runs every 30 minutes from Miami International Airport with stops at 41st Street, Alton Road, Collins Avenue, Lincoln Road, and Washington Avenue. The cost is a normal bus ticket fare at $2.25 for an uber-comfortable express ride from 6:00 a.m. to 11:40 p.m. seven days a week.

When vacationing in Miami Beach, you’ll want to familiarize yourself with Route 120. This bus is the preferred circulator route by South Beach visitors and residents and stops frequently in popular spots around Miami Beach, Surfside, Bal Harbour, Aventura Mall and Haulover Park Marina. If you need a further reach when staying in South Beach, Route 120 also goes to the Downtown Bus Terminal where you’ll have easy access to the Main Library, Historical Museum, Miami Art Museum, Government Center Metrorail station, Miami Dade College Wolfson Campus, and the Omni Bus Terminal.
