You’ve just arrived in Miami International Airport and now you need to find a way to get to your hotel. You can’t decide if you should spend money on a taxi, or just take a bus. You would prefer the convenience of a taxi, but the money could be better spent on a margarita, or two, or even three. What should you do? Don’t panic. You may not have realized it, but there are more than two Miami airport transportation options open to you.
Taxis are the fastest and most convenient way of getting from the airport to your destination and back again. You can find them outside of the lower arrivals level. If there are none waiting when you arrive, just contact the dispatcher that you will find outside of every concourse.
Your next best option is the Super Shuttle. The Super Shuttle picks up several passengers at a time. Its fares are per person, and are based on the distance that you will be traveling. Because most of the people that you will be sharing the ride with are probably not be going to the same place as you, it can take a little extra time to get to where you are going. So just take the weight off your feet, and enjoy the ride. Reservations are recommended, but not required.
Many hotels offer airport shuttle service. If you are staying at a hotel that does offer the service, you will find its shuttle, along with the other hotel shuttles, outside of the upper departure area.
There are several private transportation and limousine companies that service Miami International, offering a wide variety of vehicles. Options range from luxury sedans to SUVs. Chauffeurs will often meet the client at the gate and accompany him/her through the baggage claims area. This service however, must always be arranged in advance.
Younger travelers often like to save money by using public transportation. Metrobus has a station outside of concourse E, right across from customs. There is also a night service that runs from midnight to six in the morning call Airport Owl.
Travelers heading out to Miami Beach can hop on board the Airport Flyer. The Airport Flyer is an express bus that makes a direct run from Miami International Airport to Miami Beach, from six in the morning to eleven at night, seven days a week. It makes only one stop at Earlington Heights station along the way, from where travelers wanting to go downtown can catch the train. There are departures every thirty minutes.
For those travelers continuing on to Fort Lauderdale or Palm Beach, there is the Tri-Rail commuter train. The station is located just east of Miami International Airport. Metrobus offers Tri-Rail ticket holders free shuttle service to and from the airport.
With the completion of the new Rental Car Center, car rental companies will no longer have desks inside of the airport. All of the rental firms that previously had their desks there, as well as many with locations nearby, are being moved into it. For the time being, a shuttle service will be provided to transport customers from the airport terminals to the new center. A light-rail system, called the MIA Mover, is under currently under construction and will provide a permanent link between Miami International and the RCC in the future.
Finding Miami airport transportation may seem like an impossible task to the jet-lagged traveler. But don’t worry. Airport personnel are always ready to provide assistance. Just look for their blue uniforms in the arrival and departure curbside areas.
