Did you know Miami Dade Transit offers an “app” for iPhone/Pad and Android that gives you all of the public transportation schedules in the palm of your hand?
With this nifty little application, you will have accurate information about transit services throughout Miami-Dade County area including a trip planner and rider alerts. You can pull up each bus route with its time table, connecting routes and map. The MetroRail and MetroMover sections provide each station’s address, parking information, schedules, map, and connecting buses. There is even a tracker to let you know in real time when the next train will be arriving at any particular station. (Live bus tracking is currently being tested on a Kendall route)
The Trip Planner feature is one of my favorites. Enter your starting and destination addresses, and the trip planner will direct you step-by-step to the MetroMover, train and/or bus needed to get you to your destination.
Service updates and elevators/escalators status reports will alert you to detoured/disabled routes, and out of service equipment at the stations. It will also let you know if there is a special event or holiday schedule in effect.
