Transfer from Fort Lauderdale Hollywood International Airport
Going Downtown from Fort Lauderdale Hollywood International Airport
Miami is a southeastern city in Florida on the shore of the Atlantic ocean, which makes it a holiday hotspot. Being the seventh largest U.S. city, Miami is served by three main commercial airports:
- Miami International Airport
- Fort Lauderdale Hollywood International Airport
- Palm Beach International Airport
Arriving at Fort Lauderdale International Airport is a lucky break for those who are staying in the north of Miami. Besides, if you get stressed out by the crowds, it’s your preferred choice, because it’s less crowded than, let’s say, at MIA thus the security lines are shorter. Located 30 miles north of Miami, it’s a hub for JetBlue and Spirit airlines, which means you can find some of the more affordable flights there. It also features 30 more airlines, including Delta, Southwest, and United.
At the airport you’ll find wheelchair-accessible restrooms, elevators, and wheelchair service. It offers its visitors a vast variety of restaurants, serving cuisines from different parts of the world. You can also find popular fast-food places like Burger King, Starbucks and Shake Shake.
As for the transportation, there are 4 different options available to get around Downtown Miami.
Unfortunately FLL has no direct connection to the Miami train system. But there is a free airport shuttle bus to Fort Lauderdale Airport train station, which will take around 20 minutes. When you get there, you then take a connecting train to MetroRail Station in Miami. The train ride will take 40 minutes. Total travel time is 50 minutes. One-way train ticket costs $5. Trains are available from 5 AM to 9 PM on weekdays and from 7 AM to 10 PM on holidays and weekends.
Shuttle bus stops are located on the lower level:
- At the west end of Terminal 1
- At the east end of Terminal 4
In order to get to a bus station take a free shuttle bus from the airport. Taking a bus is a bit cheaper than going by train, but the difference is minor. One-way ticket on 595 Express will cost $3.60. You will spend an hour in total to get to Maimi city center.
The Express bus is available at the Fort Lauderdale airport from 5:40 AM to 7:45 PM
This is the fastest and most comfortable option by far. It will cost you a little more, but that’s the price of a stress-free and comfortable journey from the airport to the city. Every cab at the airport has a taximeter, so the price will depend on the time and distance travelled. The trip usually takes 30 minutes, but it heavily depends on the traffic situation. The ride cost is about $70.
All the vehicles coming to pick up passengers must park in the Cell Phone Waiting Area. When you’re ready to be picked up, you call the driver, who will meet you on the arrivals level between Terminals 1 and 2 or 3 and 4.
