For those of you attending tomorrow’s Miami Heat Parade, MDT, SFRTA, BCT, and Transit Miami all strongly suggest that attendees take the train! MDT will be upping Metrorail service to a 5 minute frequency (we wish that were permanent) south of the Earlington Heights station and will be running extra vehicles on the MetroMover between 8AM and 2PM. Alternatively, you could be like our own hometown heroes and Bike to/from the parade route…
To accommodate the large crowds expected to attend the Miami Heat victory parade on Monday, June 24, 2013, Miami-Dade Transit will be enhancing its Metrorail and Metromover service, and making it easier for patrons to pay their Metrorail fare by providing ‘express pay’ lanes at Metrorail stations.
Due to road closures in the downtown Miami and Brickell areas, several Metrobus routes will be detoured, including routes 3, 6, 8, 11, 24, 48, 77, 207, 208, C and S.
Tri-Rail will be operating 4-car trains in the morning and on the return from the parade to increase train capacity. Tri-Rail will operate an additional southbound train in the morning, which will leave the Fort Lauderdale Station at approximately 10:15 a.m. Passengers are encouraged to take southbound trains P611 or P613 to ensure arrival prior to the start of the parade.
The 595 Express Miami/Brickell bus departs at 7 a.m. and 7:30 a.m. from the BB&T Center in Sunrise and travels to Brickell Plaza along the parade route. The first return trip on the 595 Express bus back to the BB&T Center departs from the Brickell Metrorail Station at 3:05 p.m. with service every 30 minutes up until 6:45 p.m.
