“Free ride but...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2012

This was a good free way to get around in downtown Miami. The pros: it visits lots of hotels and attractions, it's absolutely and positively free, it's clean and security officers were present on the rail in the evening so I felt safe. The cons: if you are in a hurry just take a taxi as it is subject to stop to sit for 10 minutes or more, it's confusing to visitors to the city as I couldn't tell which train would take me to which area with nothing written on the trains to identify them and sometimes the escalators are out and you have to walk up and down the long flight of stairs to get to the rail itself. If you have time to spare, it's a pretty good free ride.

“Great free service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2012

The FREE metromover stops at many locations in Miami and connects with busses to other areas. Trains run frequently and are clean and well maintained.

“Tri Rail”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2012

The tri rail and the metro mover was a lot of fun. We took both of these from Ft. Lauderdale Airport and were able to see a lot of the city on our way to the hotel in Miami.

“A tiny ride, with a great view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2012

This is the way to travel around the centre of Miami...just park once, close to Metro Mover, and use it to get around. It's clean air conditioned, and a really good view.
