6. Transportation Top

The Miami International Airport (MIA) is approximately a 20-minute drive away from downtown – it can be up to 30 or 40 depending on traffic.

  • Shuttle: Hotels downtown do not usually offer a shuttle to the airport.
  • Taxi: The easiest way to get from the airport downtown is by taxi, the average rate being $35 with moderate traffic. For more economical methods of transport you can also consider Super Shuttle and Uber.
  • City Bus: The commute by public transportation, using the Miami-Dade Transit system, from the airport to the hotel will take about an hour, one-passage fare of $2,25; day passes for $5,65. All trip options have at least two transfers; please consult Google Maps for possible trip options. Please visit the Miami-Dade Transit system website for more information.
