Jet off on Spring Break

If you’re heading out of town for spring break, we wouldn’t hold it against you. Catching a flight? Just remember to reserve your airport parking spot in advance!

Transportation Tips and Tricks

Street parking and metered parking is in very high demand. Pay close attention to any posted signs; parking in a restricted spot could result in a ticket or even a tow.

If you are planning on parking on the street, we would recommend downloading the PayByPhone app, which allows drivers to pay for parking and extend their time at a meter directly from their mobile device! Miami residents can also apply for a parking discount when using PayByPhone, learn more here.

Miami also has many garages and lots that are available for a fee. You can use SpotHero to reserve a spot in advance and park with ease!

Public Transportation

Miami-Dade county is served by the Metrorail and Metrobus system. You can learn more and view schedules here.

Miami also offers a free shuttle that runs daily and arrives every 15-45 minutes. You can view a schedule here.

Happy Spring!
