can a tourist/vistor purchase an EASY CARD for public transi

was wondering and reading about the easy card for public transit use ..can visitors purchase one without going on line? and registering before hand?

or does the local transit ,minus the free , ok 25 cents shuttle in' SBL '-need to pay for public transit elsewhere in Miami - like downtown? yes I know about the free metromover - but believe that you might need exact change for the metrorail ? or does a easy card can handle both ? confuse slightly/? - I thought I read somewhere that transit cards can be purchase at MIA/ airport or local Publix?

If you do not wish to buy a card online - here is a list of stores in town to buy them in person

No need to purchase an Easycard, just get a one or seven day Easyticket pass. Easycard costs $2 and is plastic, Easyticket is paper and free.

Both can be used on Metrorail and the bus. EasyTicket makes more sense in your case as ob said. The differences are explained at this link:

Haha, thanks ob. Much as I am someday hoping to be among the idle rich, still I have to face the reality of being busy at work.
