Getting Around the City During New Year Celebrations

miamiYearWhether you’re planning on visiting the clubs in Miami Beach, attending the Pitbull concert in Bayfront Park, or just hanging out and celebrating at home, transportation around Miami-Dade County may prove tricky.

With the numerous drivers expected to clog the roads, you may find that your best—and safest—bet will be to use public transportation or a ride-sharing service. And remember: There is absolutely no reason for you to be driving if you are inebriated.

If you are planning on using public transit, you’ll be pleased to know that the Metrorail and Metromover will remain in operation throughout the night on Saturday instead of stopping service at 2 am as is customary. If you’re among the 2,017 customers to download the county’s new EASY Pay mobile app beginning on New Year’s Day, you’ll also receive a complimentary one-day mobile pass. The Metrobus will be operating on regular hours, however.

If you’re going to be in Miami Beach, don’t forget about the free Miami Beach trolley service which recently launched its fourth and final route. The city is also launching a water taxi service that will pick up passengers at the Miami Beach Marina and Purdy Avenue Dock and Bayside Marketplace and Sea Isle Marina in Miami. The taxi will also be able to transport bikes. Fees for the service start at $15 if you’re traveling one way.
