Exciting news for budget-conscious visitors starting November 2017 – The City of Miami Beach is launching a comprehensive network of free trolley routes to serve residents and tourists by connecting popular attractions in both the North and South Beach areas. Enjoy effortless transfers on the Collins Express line which runs every 20 minutes and makes limited stops as it travels between the Mimo District at 88th Street and Collins Avenue all the way down to Lincoln Road Mall. Each trolley has 2 bicycle racks for guests wishing to bring along their own wheels.
With parking costs escalating and increased concerns about commuter traffic, free trolleys provide a welcome relief for local commuters. Travelers to Miami Beach now enjoy a broader range of hotel choices from budget to luxurious with easy access to all the excitement of South Beach from the more quiet and family-friendly hotels in the northern part of the city. Some of the perks of the new trolley service include free Wi-Fi on board the vehicles plus real-time tracking and next bus information through the city’s mobile application available on Google and Apple stores.
