Connecting with free Metromover - a 4.4 mile electric people mover connects with Metrorail at Government Center & Brickell stations, and with Metrobus at various downtown locations. For more informion open miamidade.gov/transit/metromover.asp
Metrorail Station * - reached by Bus route 7 - gets you to the new Metrorail's elevated Orange Line which connects to the Dadeland South Metrorail Station; on the next stop, at Earlington Heights station, you can connect to the Metrorail's Green Line, (near the intersection of SR 112, Airport Expressway & NW 22nd Avenue). For detailed information, visit: miamidade.gov/transit/riding-metrorail.asp#1
* NOTE: As it turned out - the new Miami Metrorail Station was 200 feet too short for Amtrak's Miami route, which uses longer trains. Consequently it was decided to build 2 short new streets in the adjacent commercial district for vehicle detour when Amtrak's longer trains are parked (blocking Northwest 25th Street for up to 45 mins) - This project will be completed by summer 2015, whereupon the Central Station will be able to handle all means of transportation..
Tri-Rail* is a commuter train running along I-95 from Broward & Palm Beach Counties. Its Airport Station is presently closed and instead, the southern terminus of rail service will be the Hialeah Market Station, which will provide transport to/from Miami Airport through this station. For more information call/visit: 1-800-TRI-RAIL or tri-rail.com/bulletins.htm#list24.
* NOTE: By September 2015, TriRail will arrive at Miami Intermodal Center MIC - offering Tri-Rail users access directly to the Airport and to Metrorail's Orange Line. (It is now anticipated that 'in the not-too-distant future' TriRail is to glide into 'All Aboard' Florida's MiamiCentral.)
