Miami-Dade Transit invites you to... Drive Less. Live More™
Ride the new Route 175/NW Miami-Dade Express for FREE with a complimentary 1-Day Pass through December 6, 2019 courtesy of Miami-Dade Transit and the Florida Department of Transportation. This new premium transit service allows you to park your car for FREE or get dropped off at the new park and ride facility (@ I-75 and Miami Gardens Drive) and comfortably ride in the express lanes to Palmetto Metrorail station. And don’t forget, connecting you to popular destinations such as Brickell, American Airlines Arena and the Arsht Center, riding Metromover is always free!
WHY ARE WE DOING THIS? The Florida Department of Transportation and Miami-Dade County believe that using public transportation helps to reduce congestion on the road. Basically, we hope that if you give mass transit a try, you will continue to use it. Then, hopefully your new fondness for riding Miami-Dade Transit will catch on with your friends and family too.
BUT WAIT, THERE’S MORE! You will also be eligible for the Florida Department of Transportation’s Guaranteed Ride Home (GRH) program. This means the government will pay for your ride home (via Lyft or taxicab) in the event of certain emergencies and you are unable to ride transit back home.
HOW TO GET THE FREE RIDES! To get the free rides, simply go to the newly constructed Park and Ride Facility (see map) any weekday from now through December 6, 2019. You will receive a 1-Day EASY Pass to use on the Route 175/NW Miami-Dade Express, and the first tap must be on board route 175 departing from the Park & Ride lot. Our friendly greeters will be there to welcome you and provide your free pass. The bus leaves the park and ride facility every 15 minutes between 5:30 am and 9:30 am (see schedule).
Complimentary EASY Cards with a 1-DAY pass are available while supplies last, one per person.
