The Mover Now Moves Until 2AM on Weekends
Great news, Downtowners! The People Mover, Metromover, Mover, or whatever you want to call it now moves until 2am on the weekends according to a press release by the Miami-Dade Transit System. They are also extending service for Metrorail effective this weekend. The press release reads:
“Starting Friday, Oct. 28, 2016, Miami-Dade County’s Department of Transportation and Public Works (DTPW) will extend its Metrorail and Metromover service until 2 a.m. on Friday and Saturday nights.
The time adjustment was recently approved by the Board of County Commissioners during the September 22 budget meeting and will go into effect starting the last Friday and Saturday in October – just in time for the Halloween weekend.
Riders can now enjoy weekend nights on the town without having to worry about catching the last midnight train. Stay for that extra hour or two and let us take you home safely.
“Many of the businesses and residences that connect to our transit system are growing, in particular in the downtown Miami and Brickell areas,” said Alice N. Bravo, P.E., Director of DTPW.
“By extending our service hours, we are supporting this significant economic growth, and are providing a clean, safe, and convenient transit option for the hundreds of residents who live, work and play near our Metrorail and Metromover stations.”
