Taxis

 

Taxis aren’t very popular with locals. They can be expensive and unreliable. Meters start at approximately $2.50—but can vary from cab to cab, and not always in your favor. Tipping is expected as well. Taxis can sometimes be a good choice when leaving the airport, as Ubers and Lyfts can be tough to track and find at the busy terminals. But, other than that, we highly recommend using a ride-share app for quick, trustworthy results.  If you’d like to take a cab, try Miami-Dade Taxis ( 305) 551-1111; Flamingo Taxis (305) 599-9999; Yellow Cab (305) 777-7777; Rickenbacker Taxi (305) 365-0000; or Super Yellow Cab (305) 888-7777.

 

Ride-share Apps

 

It hasn’t taken long for Miami to embrace ride-share apps. An Uber or Lyft is generally cheaper and quicker than a taxi and can be tracked on your smartphone more reliably. Uber and Lyft also have options (called Uber Pool and Lyft Line) that will allow you to share a ride with other passengers, significantly cutting cost in exchange for a longer drive. Just make sure you have all young belongings when you exit. If you leave a phone or wallet behind in and Uber or Lyft, getting it back means you’ll have to try and call your driver through the app. And that can be a real pain. To get started, just download your preferred app from your app store.

Miami Trolley

 

The Miami trolley is a great free way to get around certain areas of the city. On the mainland, these orange and green vehicles operate in Allapattah, Downtown, Brickell, Coconut Grove, Coral Way, Edgewater, Little Havana, Overtown, Wynwood and more. There’s also a particularly convenient and reliable trolley operating in Miami Beach. Trolley service starts at 6:30am on weekdays and runs till 7pm, 8pm, 11pm or midnight depending on location. You can track the trolley live online. When you see one, you can try to flag it down (they won’t stop if they’re full) or—the easier option—find a marked stop. There is a marked stop conveniently located near Fortuna House at 2618 Biscayne Boulevard. When aboard, feel free to ask the driver the best place to get off for your destination.
