Miami transit and public transportation guide The frequency of service varies by route, time and day of the week: as often as every 10 or 15 minutes or as far apart as every 45 minutes. A one-way bus fare starts at $2.25 and children less than 42 inches tall travel free. Different buses and routes can fluctuate by 25 cents or so, but nothing will cost you more than $3.

The Metromover is one of three train lines in Miami-Dade (Metromover, Metrorail and Tri-Rail). The Metromover is the smallest of the three but the most efficient and convenient—if you happen to be sticking around Downtown and Brickell. The elevated, electric monorail runs two very short loops—one inner, one outer—around Downtown (Mon–Thu 5am–11pm, Fri 5am–midnight, Sat 6am–midnight and Sun 6am–11pm). The Metromover is free and can help you bypass Downtown and Brickell's absolutely horrific traffic and offers direct stops at the Brickell City Centre and Bayfront Park.
