The Miami Beach Trolley’s four routes are the South Beach Loop, Middle Beach Loop, Collins Express and North Beach Loop. Read on to see where they’ll take you.

South Beach Loop

Along the South Beach Loop, Miami Beach Trolleys run in both directions, making it a breeze to access the very best of South Beach no matter where you’re going. Hop aboard and get the lay of the land on a route that journeys through South Beach’s Art Deco District from South Pointe Park up Washington Avenue and then west, with a quick jaunt to Belle Isle across the Venetian Causeway, before heading back south along Alton Road. The South Beach Loop conveniently connects passengers to restaurants, grocery stores, pharmacies, hotels and attractions, including the New World Symphony, Fillmore Miami Beach at the Jackie Gleason Theater, Lincoln Road, The Bass museum and more.

Middle Beach Loop

The Middle Beach Loop runs from Lincoln Road north to 43rd Street near the Fontainebleau and also west across 41st Street to Mount Sinai Hospital. Along the way, it provides reliable and frequent service to the Miami Beach Regional Library, Collins Park, Miami Beach Senior High, the Miami Beach Convention Center and the Miami Beach Botanical Garden.

Collins Express

Starting at Lincoln Road, the Collins Express Miami Beach Trolley makes stops throughout South Beach’s Art Deco District and the dazzling modern hotels lining Collins Avenue, including the Loews Miami Beach, The Setai and W South Beach. In Mid Beach, you’ll zip past mid-century modern gems, such as the Fontainebleau and the Eden Roc hotels.

Running along the length of Collins Avenue from Lincoln Road north to 88th Street, Collins Express is ideal for those with lots of ground to cover traveling from South Beach to North Beach or vice versa. As its name implies, Collins Express makes limited stops along this route to reduce travel time for an efficient and pleasant experience.

In North Beach, Collins Express makes stops near the Carillon Miami Wellness Resort, the North Beach Bandshell and North Beach Oceanside Park at 88th Street before looping back south.

North Beach Loop

Running from 65th Street to 88th Street in North Beach, the Miami Beach Trolley’s North Beach Loop also travels west into Normandy Isles with access to the Normandy Isle Park and Pool. It conveniently connects North Beach residents and visitors to Allison Park, Publix at 69th Street, North Shore Open Space Park, the North Shore Branch Library, North Beach Bandshell and many other destinations.
