Miami-Dade County’s Department of Transportation and Public Works (DTPW) oversees and operates the day-to-day functions and services of Miami-Dade Transit (MDT). Transit services extend across County lines and are made up of: A Metrobus fleet made up of 890 vehicles; the electrically-powered Metrorail that stretches 25 miles; and the free-to-ride Metromover in downtown Miami. The ultimate goal of MDT is to meet the needs of the public while delivering the highest-quality transit service that is clean, safe, convenient, and reliable. The latest initiatives from DTPW include: An update to the Miami-Dade Transit Tracker app that now includes real-time vehicle tracking and a Trip Planner feature; the introduction of the EASY Pay app that allows riders to purchase fare tickets from the palm of their hand; and welcoming for testing the first two all-new rail cars for the upgraded Metrorail fleet. The Department encourages residents and visitors to leave their cars behind in order to drive less and live more.

The 2017 Commuter Challenge highlighted the benefits of carpooling, taking public transit options, biking and walking. We urge everyone to make use of alternative transportation to help reduce traffic congestion and environmental impact. If you're interested in carpooling, please download the free RideFlag mobile app which allows you to carpool on demand.
