The University of Miami has four campuses: Coral Gables, Medical, Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science (RSMAS), and South Campus. Although most students arrive in Miami by plane, the city is also accessible by bus, train or automobile. Visit these sites for a variety of ways to get to the University of Miami from Miami International Airport and from Fort Lauderdale/Hollywood International Airport including the Metrorail, SuperShuttle, and taxi service:

Metrorail:

Miami-Dade County’s 25-mile dual track, elevated rapid transit system provides service to Miami International Airport (MIA) and runs from Kendall through South Miami, Coral Gables, and downtown Miami; to the Civic Center/Jackson Memorial Hospital area; and to Brownsville, Liberty City, Hialeah, and Medley in northwest Miami-Dade, with connections to Broward and Palm Beach counties at the Tri-Rail/Metrorail transfer station. The 23 accessible Metrorail stations are about one mile apart, providing easy access for bus riders, pedestrians, and passengers dropped off and picked up. Metrorail is the most affordable choice for getting to and from the airport. A one-way ticket costs $2. For more Metrorail information, go to www.miamidade.gov/transit/metrorail.asp.

SuperShuttle:

SuperShuttle is a shared-ride airport shuttle service providing door-to-door ground transportation. The vans are comfortable and the rates are reasonable. SuperShuttle is cheaper than a taxi; however, the shuttle may take other people so it may take longer to arrive to your destination.
