Elevated Rail in Miami

Information about the two elevated rail systems in Miami and the Greater Miami area of South Florida.

MetroRail of Miami-Dade County
24 mile elevated rail rapid transit system.

Free Miami-Dade MetroMover
The MetroMover is a free elevated rail transportation system serving downtown Miami. Transport is in individual cars moving on a 4.4 mile track. The service began in 1986 with only the downtown loop and the Omni and Brickell extensions were added in 1994. There are twenty-one Metromover stations in downtown Miami and the system connects with the Metrorail system at the Government Center and Brickell stations. The downtown loop is sometimes called the inner loop dand the Omni Loop and Brickell Loop are sometimes called the outer loops.

Miami-Dade MetroRail
This rapid transit system runs on 21 miles of elevated rails and it serves a wider area then the free MetroMover system described above. MetroRail runs seven days a week, usually from 5:00 am to midnight. There are twenty-two MetroRail stations covering the area from Medley and Hialeah in the north, through downtown Miami, through Coral Gables, South Miami, and ending in southwest Miami-Dade at the Dadeland Mall. By 2016 the MetroRail will be extended to serve the Miami International Airport, Florida International University, and Dolphin Stadium. Longer term plans include extending it to Coral Gables, Western Kendall, and Adventura.
