Miami-Dade Transit extends service for Ultra Music Festival's 20th anniversary celebration

Miami-Dade Transit is offering an easy and fast way of getting to the 20th anniversary celebration of the Ultra Music Festival happening this weekend in Downtown Miami.

To encourage festival-goers to leave their cars behind and opt for a better mobility option to get to the Ultra Music Festival, Miami-Dade Transit is extending Metrorail and Metromover hours, starting service from 5 a.m. until 2 a.m. the following morning on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, March 23-25, 2018.

Event goers can take Metrorail ($2.25 for a one-way trip) to the Government Center Station. From there, transfer to Metromover’s Inner Loop (free of charge) and get off at the College/Bayside, First Street or Bayfront Park Metromover station.

Parking at any Metrorail garage or surface lot is only $4.50 for the entire day. Parking garages will remain open until the following day.

For added convenience, transit riders now can pay for parking at Metrorail garages/surface lots via their mobile devices with PayByPhone. For more information, visit the PayByPhone page.

Event goers can plan their trip on transit, or track their ride in real-time, by downloading the free Miami-Dade Transit Tracker app.

The new EASY Pay Miami app, also from Miami-Dade Transit, allows a transit rider to turn his/her smartphone into a mobile ticket. On the EASY Pay app, event goers can buy a 1-Day Pass ($5.65) with EASY Pay and head to the music festival seamlessly. EASY Cards are still accepted at the Metrorail fare gates for riders’ convenience.

The following Metrobus routes will be detoured starting at 9 p.m. on Thursday, March 22, until 6 a.m. on Monday, March 26: 3, 9, 93, 120 Beach MAX and S.
