Four years ago today, Miami-Dade Transit launched the Orange Line MetroRail, extending our elevated light-rail service to Miami International Airport.
The Orange Line Metrorail has become the most affordable choice for getting to and from Miami International Airport Station.
Local residents headed out-of-town can now leave behind all the traffic and parking hassles that come with driving to the airport. And out-of-towners at the airport have the best of Miami-Dade County’s attractions and activities in easy, affordable reach.
City of Miami, in partnership with Miami-Dade Transit, had a block party at the downtown Government Center Station to celebrate the first ride to MIA. The Miami HEAT’s mascot, Burnie, and representatives of the City of Miami police department participated in the festivities.
