Miami International Airport in Florida has been ranked the most transit-accessible airport in the USA, according to a study released by transportation technology company TransitScreen.
The study analyzed the 20 busiest US airports in passenger traffic and their access to buses, trains and taxis, in addition to ride-sharing, bike-sharing and car-sharing options. It gave Miami Airport a MobilityScore of 66 (on a scale of 1 to 100).
The study highlighted that Miami Central Station – the ground transportation hub connected to Miami Airport – provides nine bus routes to various neighborhoods, while transit options at other US airports mostly carry passengers straight to the heart of the city. Miami Central Station also houses stations for Metrorail, Tri-Rail and inter-city buses, and is adjacent to a full-service rental car center with 14 companies – all within one intermodal complex. Mimai Airport is also connected to the Miami Central Station by a 1.25-mile automated people mover system.
“This national study is encouraging news for our residents and for visitors to our community,” said Carlos Giménez, mayor of Miami-Dade County. “Miami Airport continues to earn accolades for its passenger and cargo operations, concessions, customer service, and now, for its ground transportation options.”
“We are proud to offer our passengers the most transit-accessible airport in the USA,” said Emilio T González, Miami-Dade aviation director. “The multimodal transportation options available under one roof at the Miami Central Station is another way that Miami Airport is providing an enhanced travel experience for our passengers.”
