Miami-Dade Adjusts Public Transit Schedules for Memorial Day, Offers Digital Convenience for RidersSource: Facebook/Miami-Dade County Department of Transportation and Public Works

Heads up, Miami-Dade residents: your Memorial Day weekend travel plans may need a tweak. The county's Department of Transportation and Public Works is rolling out a holiday schedule for its transit services on May 27, which means weekend service for Metrorail and Metromover, and Sunday service on Metrobus and MetroConnect. According to Miami-Dade County, county offices will take the day off too, and that includes all of DTPW's desks, from administrative to Customer Service.

While many services are dialing back, Special Transportation Services won't skip a beat, offering regular service for those who rely on it. With a quick call to the Special Transportation Services reservation line at 305-871-1111, customers can manage their trips with ease. And for all the tech-savvy riders out there, the digital realm offers solutions on the go. Whether it's purchasing or reloading an EASY Card through various apps including the Transit Store or the Go-Miami Dade App, or using contactless payment methods, options are at your fingertips for a smooth transaction.

But wait, there's more – if you're a Golden Passport EASY Card seeker, Miami-Dade County got you covered with an online application page ready to serve. And if the unthinkable happens and you lose something while rushing to your holiday barbecue, the Lost and Found page is standing by to help reunite you with your belongings.

For those eager to stay in the loop without having to search, Miami-Dade County offers an alert sign-up at miamidade.gov/alerts. Keep connected through social media as well, with Department of Transportation and Public Works keeping you posted on Facebook, X, and Instagram. And if that's not enough, the Mobility 305 newsletter promises a monthly dose of news, events, and those extra perks that make the ride a little sweeter.
