Miami-Dade pilots express rail service to downtown Miami


Miami-Dade County Transit has been offering an express rail service this month from the Dadeland South and Palmetto stations to downtown Miami.

The Downtown Express Metrorail service has been running on weekdays, departing twice in the mornings and twice in the afternoons with only selected stops on the route to downtown Miami, according to Miami-Dade Transit’s website.

Operated as a pilot program, the service began Dec. 7 and will wrap up today. It is one of the first new transit offerings to passengers since Alice Bravo was appointed transit director last summer, according to the Miami Herald.

The express rail service is one way the transit agency wants to promote and enhance existing transit services, including Metrorail, Bravo told the newspaper.
