Miami-Dade Transit extends Metrorail and Metromover service until 2 a.m. Friday and Saturday nights starting Oct. 28

MIAMI (October 18, 2016)

Starting Friday, Oct. 28, 2016, Miami-Dade County’s Department of Transportation and Public Works (DTPW) will extend its Metrorail and Metromover service until 2 a.m. on Friday and Saturday nights.

The time adjustment was recently approved by the Board of County Commissioners during the September 22 budget meeting and will go into effect starting the last Friday and Saturday in October – just in time for the Halloween weekend.

Riders can now enjoy weekend nights on the town without having to worry about catching the last midnight train. Stay for that extra hour or two and let us take you home safely.

“Many of the businesses and residences that connect to our transit system are growing, in particular in the downtown Miami and Brickell areas,” said Alice N. Bravo, P.E., Director of DTPW.

“By extending our service hours, we are supporting this significant economic growth, and are providing a clean, safe, and convenient transit option for the hundreds of residents who live, work and play near our Metrorail and Metromover stations.”

To plan a trip on transit, residents and visitors are encouraged to download the newly upgraded free Miami-Dade Transit Tracker app, which offers complete trip-planning information, as well as real-time information for approaching buses, Metrorail, and Metromover vehicles.

The public also can visit the Department’s site, or speak with a Transit agent by calling 305-891-3131, Monday through Friday, from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., and on Saturdays, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
