Getting around Miami Beach is easy and free
Now, traveling around this historical, tropical paradise is safer, more comfortable and a lot more fun, due to its transportation options.
Here are some efficient alternatives to help cut down on the frustration and time spent behind the wheel when visiting Miami Beach. MiamiBeachTrolley.com offers citywide trolley service that operates 15 hours a day, from 8 a.m. to 11 p.m., seven days a week. Average service frequency along each route is at approximately 30-minutes.
Miami Beach Trolley
With multiple free routes to choose from, traveling around South Beach via the free trolley is easier than ever. There are currently four routes, including the South Beach Trolley, Collins Express, Middle Beach Loop and North Beach Loop. The routes are designed to connect the entire beach and you can hop on and off to visit all of your favorite destinations along the way.
You may have seen these electric cars, some with no doors, and all with large roof ads in Miami (Brickell, Downtown, Wynwood, Edgewater, Midtown, Design District); Miami Beach; Coral Gables and Key Biscayne. They provide transportation in usually congested areas where parking is scarce. They don’t go along routes, but the advantage is you can customize your travel and they don’t make the regular stops that trolleys and buses do.
There’s also an app that you can download on your phone that allows you to request a free ride. See the Ride Freebee website for more info and how to download the app.
Consider taking advantage of all of these free transportation opportunities. It not only reduces traffic but it’s also good for the environment and makes for an enjoyable way to explore all of the attractions the city has to offer — and it’s free!
Please note that there are other transit options that charge a fee.
