Before You Book Transportation from Miami International Airport

By

You have arrived at Miami International Airport (MIA) and gotten your bags, now what? You have a few transportation options to get from the Miami airport to your hotel, or to the Port of Miami for your cruise. Find detailed information and tips on each of your transportation options.

Take a Taxi

This is an easy and popular option. It may be the best choice for a party of 1 or 2 people.

Take a Super Shuttle

A Super Shuttle is a shared-passenger van. It may be less expensive than a taxi, depending on how many people you have in your party.

Reserve Private Transportation

Private transportion might include a sedan, passenger van, or limousine - driven by a chauffeur. This option is the most stress-free, though it is sometimes more expensive than a taxi.

Take Public Transportation

For those whose main goal is to save money, public transportation is your best bet.

Rent a Car

If you will need a rental car during your trip, you can pick one up as soon as your plane arrives.

Take Your Hotel's Pick-Up Service

Check with your hotel to see if they offer free airport shuttle service for guests. If so, ask them for detailed information about pick-up times and locations.

Ask a Friend to Pick You Up

If you have a friend or relative who is kind enough to pick you up at the airport, lucky you! Make sure they know the driving directions to the airport.

They should be aware that there is no parking or waiting allowed on the curb outside of the airport terminal. They will need to park in short-term parking, or wait outside in the airport’s Cell Phone Waiting Lot, until you call to tell them you are on the way. It is located just off of LeJeune Road and N.W. 31 Street. Make sure to tell them what concourse (A through J) you are standing in front of. They are allowed to pull over long enough to load you into the car.
