Getting Around Greater Miami Without a Car is Easy - Ride the Trolleys!

Not only is exploring Miami and Miami Beach, and other neighborhoods by air-conditioned trolley fun, it's also free. Here's how to get around using the Greater Miami trolley systems which serve Miami Beach, the City of Miami, Coral Gables, the City of Doral and Miami Gardens.

Miami Beach Trolley

The Miami Beach trolley runs 8 a.m. to 11 p.m., seven days a week, with service about every 30 minutes. Travelers have four routes to choose from, making traveling around Miami Beach's South Beach, Mid-Beach, and North Beach neighborhoods easier than ever.

Where Does the Miami Beach Trolley Go?

The South Beach trolley loop stretches from 23rd street south into the popular SoFi neighborhood at the south end of the island. The Middle Beach trolley loop operates along Dade Boulevard and Collins Avenue up to 41st Street. The North Beach trolley loop makes stops from 65th Street north to Normandy Isle and on up to the north end of the island. The Collins Express trolley route connects to all three trolley loops along Collins Avenue so you can easily travel the length of the island, hopping on and off to visit your favorite stops along the way.
