Metromover is a free people mover train system operated by Miami-Dade Transit in Miami, Florida, United States. Metromover serves Downtown Miami and Brickell from Omni to Brickell and connects with Metrorail at Government Center and Brickell stations. It originally began service to the Downtown Loop on April 17, 1986. The Omni and Brickell extensions (see below) opened May 26, 1994.

Operations

There are 21 conveniently located accessible Metromover stations located throughout Downtown Miami and Brickell at roughly every two blocks. The Metromover links all of Downtown and Brickell's major office buildings, residential buildings, hotels, and retail centers. Major attractions such as the Stephen P. Clark Government Center, American Airlines Arena, Arsht Performing Arts Center, the Cultural Plaza (Miami Art Museum, Historical Museum of Southern Florida, Miami Main Library), Bayside Marketplace, Mary Brickell Village, Miami-Dade College and the Brickell Financial District can all be reached by the Metromover.

Running clockwise, the Downtown (Inner) Loop serves all Downtown stations except Third Street station. The Outer Loop (Brickell and Omni Loops) runs counterclockwise around the downtown area servicing all stations except for Miami Avenue Station. The Brickell loop runs a line into the Brickell area to the south of downtown, while the Omni Loop contains a line with stations in the Midtown Miami area to the north of downtown.

All loops run from 5 a.m. to midnight, seven days a week. This schedule is adjusted during events. Trains arrive every 90 seconds during rush hours and every three minutes otherwise.

Fleet

Metromover currently uses a fleet of 29 Adtranz C-100 vehicles. In the summer of 2008, 12 of the system's vehicles began to be replaced with all new Bombardier CX-100 vehicles, which is a newer model of the C-100. These new vehicles include a more aerodynamic design, as well as an onboard CCTV system.[2]
