As you have seen, the Miami airport is quite close to the city. Here are the means you have available for the transfer from Miami airport to the city.

Miami Beach Airport Express

The service is active every day, including Saturday and Sunday, from 6:00 to 23:40.

Miami International Airport is also served by local public service bus, called Metrobus.

The lines serving the Miami International Airport area are as follows:

  • 7 – City of Sweetwater, Doral, Flagler, Downtown, Historic Overtown;
  • 37 – City of South Miami to Hialeah via Sunset Drive and 37th Ave;
  • 42 -Miami Springs, Opa Locka, City of Hialeah, Tri-Rail Station, Amtrak Station, Coral Gables and Douglas Metrorail Station. (The service is active only on weekdays);
  • 57 - South Miami Metro Rail Station, Bird Road, Jackson South Hospital, Busway at SW 152nd St (the service operates on weekdays only);
  • J (110) –  Northwest 36th St., Allapattah, City of Miami Beach;

Remember that buses do not go directly to the airport terminals, but stop at Central Station.
From here, they are enough 5 minutes with the MetroMover to get to the desired terminal.

If, once you get off the plane, you want to take a bus of the Metrobus service, therefore, you must first reach the Central Station, where you can also buy the EasyCard rechargeable.

Surely, also considering the baggage to take with you as soon as you get off the plane, that of subwaybus is one of less advantageous transportation options to reach the city, even if it is one of the most economic.

If you want to travel by bus, the Airport Express is certainly the best choice.
