Miami-Dade Transit

Miami-Dade Transit is the largest transit system in Florida. The current standard fare on Metrorail is $2.00.
In July 2008, Miami-Dade Transit announced that it would be replacing all fare collection methods by an Easy
Card system until late 2009. The system replaces the old cash-/token-based system.

(L) Metrorail viaduct under construction during the early 1980s.
(R) Government Center Station, the main station in the downtown Miami.Transfers can be made to the Metromover and to the Metrobus.

I know the first time on this trip that there is an elevated railway system in the suburbs and the city center of
Miami.It is worth riding a train, since it is easily learned from the train window the geography of Miami districts.
The construction of Metrorail viaduct started in 1979 and was completed in 1984.
The north side district of this railway, a tourist should be careful for security; however, for the south side area,
we do not need to worry much, and we can see a construction of many condominiums and an individual private
house. This appears to be a natural flow that aged people after retirement at this area because of a warm climate.

(L) A Miami Metro train is arriving at the Northside station. (R) A Metro train is approaching to the Earlington Heights station.
(L) A route map of Miami-Dade Transit. (R) A Miami Metro runs along Airport Expressway, near the Miami International Airport.

To ride a train, we have to insert three 50-cent coin at the ticket gate. The exchange machine is set at each
station.However, it is often broken and person looked like station attendant collected a coin. There is no ticket
at any form. Nobody may stay in a railway facility and ride a train all day long, although it is feasible. In order
to reduce air pollution, the city recommends so-called 'Park and Ride' scheme. A parking lot next to the station
is free of charge.
