Getting to or from Miami International Airport (MIA) can be a hassle. In this article, we take a look at several of the transportation options available to you when you need to get a ride to or from Miami airport.


Miami Airport Trains

Miami International Airport is served by the county's MetroRail system. A $2 fare will get you directly to or from the airport and any station on the Miami rail system.


Miami Airport Taxis

Taxis are, by far, the most common means of getting to or from the airport if you don’t plan to drive your own vehicle.
Taxis are easily available on the concourse outside of baggage claim and taxi fares run between $15-$45 for most destinations within Miami-Dade County.

SuperShuttle Shared Ride

SuperShuttle is a convenient, inexpensive way to travel to the airport via a shared ride van service. SuperShuttle vans are often less expensive than a taxi ride and service both Miami International Airport and Fort Lauderdale International Airport. Transportation is available 24 hours per day.

For more information on SuperShuttle service, read Miami Airport SuperShuttle Service.


Public Transportation

Unfortunately, Miami’s public transportation system does not provide an easy connection to the airport, other than MetroBus service. This is due to change in 2012, when the MetroRail system extension to the airport should be ready for service.

Miami Airport Parking

Miami Airport is not the easiest place in the world to navigate. Driving into the airport presents challenges for drivers rushing to catch a flight and unwilling to spend an exorbitant amount on parking.
