Just in time for spring break, Brightline passengers can take advantage of shuttle pickups from two of South Florida’s busiest airports, MIA and FLL, as well as three destinations in Miami Beach.
The South Florida rail provider has launched its bi-directional “Airport Connectors” to provide guests with an accessible way to go from plane to train with pickup from the airport terminal directly to Brightline’s stations in time to catch their train.
And travelers visiting Miami Beach over spring break or on vacation can also catch the “Beach Express” shuttle for an easy way to get to the Brightline MiamiCentral station.
Starting today, pickup and drop-off locations for the Brightline Airport Connector and Beach Express Shuttles are:

The new shuttle service, through Brightline+, operates on a fixed route schedule, is trackable and does not require advance reservations. One-way rides are a flat rate of $10 per person and can be paid for upon boarding shuttles.
Shuttles will depart stations to the airports and Miami Beach 10 minutes after each train arrives. The Brightline Aventura Mall shuttle will remain complimentary, operating every 30 minutes with drop-off at the Aventura Mall Bus Stop.

If you’re in need of a ride, another way to get to and from a Brightline station with ease is through through rideshare. Earlier this year, the company announced its partnership with Uber to allow guests to book a ride through the train company’s app and site.
