Cant beat the free transportation during COVID
Dec 2020
Frequent service and free ridership made this the transportation method of choice around the Miami Beach area. Even the airport express bus is free.

Cheap & efficient way to get round
May 2019 • Solo
I used Metrobus eight times, and have only positive things to say.

It links the parts of Miami that the various train systems don't. It only costs $2.25 and tickets are valid for three hours (great if you need to change buses).

On my first journey from the airport to my accommodation I asked two bus drivers for help about where to get off, and they were superb. After that I got the hang of it!

Two problems. Visitors should go for Easyticket which can be loaded with as much cash as you want. This is different from Easycard which is more suitable for locals. At the airport the two tickets confusingly are on sale from different machines.

Buses are not fantastically frequent, so look up the timetables on-line.

Look it is the worst public bus system we've ever used and we've been all over the world

This is a third world country public bus system. No timetable, late by over an hour so it is entirely plausible that it only runs a third of it's buses, buses are outdated and still use string to notify driver for stops, and plastic bucket seats. We wasted almost 3 hrs trying to get from Miami South beach to the mall at 163rd Street. My impression is I'm better to walk or cycle than rely on this bus system. Horrible. Can't comment on the airport connection.

Very inexpensive way to get to South Beach
Feb 2018
We used Metrobus to South Beach from airport and saved big time. A cab would be at least 50 dollars or more, this bus is only 2.25 one way and took only 20 min. to get to South Beach.

As the metro rail pulls into a stop the bus pulls away and sometimes you have to wait 45 minutes to an hour or more on the weekends. Express buses from the outlying area are more functional. Look for the little area trolleys that are complimentary. Listed online. S bus from downtown through South Beach, Miami Beach, to Aventura is terrific.

Bargain to South Beach
Feb 2017 • Couples
We caught the metro bus from Miami international airport to 13th street south beach. It cost $4.25 for two of us!! A very helpful gentleman at the airport helped us purchase tickets from the machine, provided us with a map and showed us where the best place to get off for our hotel would be. A short wait of 10 minutes and then about 20- 25 minute journey. Saw the Miami skyline on the way. Great way to get to South Beach.

The mass transportation system in Miami is second to know. We were greeted at the Miami Airport station by several team

Used the bus to get around town. I wouldn't say it was fast but a lot better than driving and very inexpensive. Most of all the drivers were extremely helpful. Thanks so much.

Cheap & efficient
Nov 2016 • Solo
You really can't complain with this cheap and efficient service, which costs $2.25 flat rate.

Caught it from MIA to Washington Avenue and 9th Street and back again.

You will save yourself the flat $35 + tip for a yellow cab.

Of course you can always take Uber.

Get the 7 day pass
Nov 2016 • Couples
$30 for seven days on the bus, when each journey is a fumble of $2.25 and wondering if you have the change. No Brainer. We stayed inn Miami a week and this fitted perfectly. Download the Miami Dade Bus Map, put it on your phone and go. Bus is clean, frequent and only slow in the rush hours. We saved a fortune on taxis. Brilliant. No dull journeys on a Miami Bus, as one fellow traveller, a native, confided in me.

fast and cheap...best way to get from MIA airport to anywhere
Sep 2016 • Family
$2.65 per person, picks up at MIA, and has many options for stops. but it often doesn't need to stop, so trip goes even quicker. from MIA to south beach, it took us about 30 minutes. very impressed with the service, and took it back to the airport as well, with no problems.

only complaint is the display screen at front of bus doesn't consistently show next stop, and driver (if she notifies you at all) speaks softly...both drivers we had either said nothing or spoke too softly for anyone to comprehend.

print a metrobus map before your trip. it shows all the stops. confirm with your hotel at which stop you should de-bus. and just watch the street intersections as you drive by them.

overall, highly recommended service.
