Free Trolley System Expands Into Midtown
Residents and visitors alike in Miami's urban core will now be able to catch a free ride to midtown and the Design District. The free Miami Trolley system will permanently be extended into the neighborhoods tomorrow after having temporarily serviced the area during Art Basel. The new stops will begin operating tomorrow morning.
The extended route will add three new stops, in the Design District, midtown, and Roberto Clemente Park. If you happen to live between that area and the Margaret Pace Park route, you're still looking at up to a ten-block walk, but the extension is long overdue.
This means the trolley system will now split into two overlapping routes. One will serve the Brickell area, with stops as far south as Mercy Hospital, and the other will serve downtown and extend, as mentioned, as far north as the Design District. The lines will overlap in the North Brickell area, and transfers will be allowed.
The trolley runs every 15 minutes from 6:30 a.m. to 11 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Sunday.
