The 23 accessible Metrorail stations are about one mile apart, providing easy access for bus riders, pedestrians, and passengers who are dropped off and picked up.

Metromover

In addition, the free Metromover is available to easily get around downtown Miami. This 4.4-mile electrically-powered, fully automated people mover system connects with the Metrorail system at the Government Center and Brickell stations, and with Metrobus at various locations throughout downtown. Major destinations of the Metromover system include the American Airlines Arena, Bayside Market Place, Miami-Dade College and the Miami-Dade County School Board. The Metromover inner loop and the outer loop (Omni and Brickell) run from 5 a.m. to midnight seven days a week. Trains arrive frequently.
