The Miami-Dade Transit System has canceled all overnight bus service, but it's not leaving its residents stranded.
Starting Friday, April 10, those folks who need to get around between the hours of midnight and 5am can use a new on-demand service called Go Nightly. Essentially a complimentary ride-share service, the alternative transportation system uses Uber and Lyft to get passengers within a quarter-mile radius of the canceled bus routes: 3, 11, 27, 38, 77, 112/L, 119/S, 246, 500.
To participate, riders with smartphones must sign up for a voucher on Uber or, if using Lyft, enter the promo code ‘GONIGHTLY’ on the app. Those without smartphones can call 786-469-5555 and a transit representative will see to sending a car to pick them up. The same goes for people requiring wheelchair-accessible vehicles. Miami-Dade is covering the cost of rides up to $45, though riders will be charged if the location falls outside of the designated zone.
Go Nightly is free to anyone looking to get around late at night but, remember, there’s still a county-wide curfew for non-essential drivers and employees to shelter-in-place between the hours of 10pm and 5am.
That means most of you should be home, feet propped up, working your way through your Netflix queue.
We’re taking additional measure to keep our employees, riders, and #ourCounty safe. Beginning this week, we’re distributing masks to operators, installing social distancing signs on our buses, and limiting bus capacity.
