The Miami Metrorail, officially Metrorail, is the heavy rail rapid transit system of Miami, Florida, United States, serving the Greater Miami area as you can see in Miami metrorail map. Metrorail is operated by Miami-Dade Transit (MDT), a departmental agency of Miami-Dade County. Opened in 1984, it is Florida only rapid transit metro system, and is currently composed of 22.4 miles (36.0 km) of line with 22 stations. Metrorail serves the urban core of Miami, connecting the central business districts of Downtown Miami, Brickell and the Civic Center with the Greater Miami neighborhoods of Hialeah and Medley to the northwest, and to Coconut Grove, Coral Gables, South Miami, ending at Dadeland in suburban Kendall. Metrorail connects to the Metromover in Downtown, which provides metro service to the entirety of Downtown and Brickell.
Miami metrorail connects to South Florida commuter rail system at Tri-Rail Station. Metrorail has seen increased ridership growth over the years, with an average daily ridership of 66,000 passengers, as of November 2011 (96,100, including Metromover). In 2012, Metrorail will open its 23rd station, Miami Central Station, at Miami International Airport (MIA), opening a 16-station re-branded Orange Line between the MIA and Dadeland South stations as its shown in Miami metrorail map. The new line is expected to increase ridership significantly, adding millions of riders per year, and allowing residents and visitors alike direct access from the MIA to Downtown Miami, and greater connectivity between various modes of transit throughout Miami-Dade County. Central Station will provide direct service to Amtrak inter-city rail services, Tri-Rail commuter rail, Greyhound Lines intercity bus, and the Rental Car Center. Miami Central Station is expected to attract 150,000 daily commuters and travelers.
Metrorail runs from the northwest in Medley through Hialeah, into the city of Miami, the downtown area, through Coral Gables and South Miami, and ending in southwest Miami-Dade at Dadeland Mall. There are 22 accessible Metrorail stations, one about every 1.25 miles (or 1.9 kilometers) as its mentioned in Miami metrorail map. Metrorail connects to the Metromover system at Government Center and Brickell stations and to South Florida Tri-Rail suburban commuter rail system at the Tri-Rail Station. Along the Metrorail system, the tracks are mostly elevated. The three sections that are not are under I-95 between Vizcaya and Brickell stations, under I-95 just east of Culmer station, and the northern end of the line from just east of the Palmetto Expressway heading west into the Palmetto station and tail track. In each of these cases, the tracks ride on ground level for a brief amount of time.
