What is Metrorail?

Metrorail is Miami’s quick and easy 25-mile elevated transportation system to gets you to all parts of the urban core of Miami from 5:00 a.m. to midnight, seven days a week. Launched in the 80s, this rail line is the hub for all inner city transit and an easy way to get around. With new trains going online continuously, Miami expects to replace the entire Metrorail fleet with new and updated cars by 2019 to make traveling around town even more comfortable and efficient. Check out the Metrorail’s schedule to plan your day.

How Can I Get to the Airport on Metrorail?

Need to get to MIA Airport? There’s a special Metrorail Orange Line that runs specifically to the airport. The Orange Line connects to the Miami Intermodal Center, a local transportation hub, where it heads to the Miami International Airport via the MIA Mover.

Where Else Will Metrorail Take Me?

From Downtown Miami and Brickell to Coconut Grove and South Miami as well as a quick trip to the airport, this is one easy ride to get you where you need to go. There are two distinct rail lines that depart from the Dadeland South station on US1. The Orange line ends at Miami International Airport and back. The Green line runs further up north with connections to the Tri-rail and soon to be connected Virgin Train (formerly Brightline) railway. There are stops along each route at many of Miami's hotspots such as Coconut Grove, Vizcaya Museum & Gardens, Brickell, the Lyric Theater, Hialeah and more. There is also a Downtown Express line that leaves twice in the mornings and twice in the afternoons with select stops from Dadeland South to Government Center and back. Stops are about one mile apart and handicap accessible. Check out the Metrorail's station map to find out which line or stops to use, or visit our public transportation page for more details.

How Much Does the Metrorail Cost?

Metrorail trip fares start at $2.25 (discount fares being as low as $1.10) and can be purchased with a pre-paid, rechargeable EASY Card or EASY Ticket at any Metrorail station or you can purchase online. Fair warning, you’ll need an Easy Card or Ticket as the fare gates do not accept cash. Unlimited daily passes, weekly passes and monthly passes are also available. There is also EASY Pay, a smartphone app that lets you purchase tickets for buses and trains within the Miami-Dade Transit system.
