Kendall-area commuting is easier now thanks to a new Park and Ride lot and more frequent service on Miami-Dade Transit’s Kendall Cruiser bus route.
The Kendall Cruiser provides limited-stop weekday rush hour service along Kendall Drive — now with frequencies of every 12 minutes — between the Dadeland North Metrorail station and SW 162nd Avenue.
The new Park and Ride lot at SW 150th Avenue and Kendall Drive offers free convenient parking for customers wishing to leave their cars where they catch the bus.
For just $2.35 each trip, Kendall Cruiser passengers travel aboard new 60-foot diesel-electric hybrid buses featuring plenty of comfortable seating and free Wi-Fi service.
“The Kendall Cruiser offers commuters a convenient and greener alternative to driving on Kendall Drive,” said Miami-Dade Transit Director Harpal S. Kapoor. “By taking the Kendall Cruiser, residents can enjoy a stress-free ride to work while reducing their carbon footprint.”
Kendall Cruiser customers also can check the time of the next bus on their computers or Web-enabled mobile devices with MDT’s Bus Tracker system — part of a pilot program that soon will be expanded to other routes.
