ENHANCED FREEBEE SERVICE
As part of the upcoming changes, and based on the County’s analysis, Miami-Dade County will discontinue Route 115 due to historically low ridership.
In lieu of this change, the County is introducing new routes, including Route 14 from Omni Terminal in Miami to Mount Sinai Medical Center via the MacArthur Causeway, Alton Road, South Pointe Drive, Washington Avenue, Collins Avenue and 41 Street, which will partially serve the areas affected by the discontinuation of Route 115.
To help mitigate the impact of the County’s upcoming discontinuation of Route 115 and provide a suitable public transit option to the affected customers, the City has been working with the County on a plan to augment the City’s Freebee on-demand service in the affected area. Final details of the enhanced Freebee service are currently being developed between City and County staff.
Please call Miami-Dade County at 311 or 305.468.5900 to get one-on-one personal customer service in English, Spanish or Creole, Monday through Friday, 7 a.m. - 7 p.m. and Saturday, 8 a.m. - 5 p.m.
