Online Metrorail tracking

Metrorail riders can track arrivals online

The Internet age has finally arrived for Metrorail passengers.

Starting this week, Miami-Dade Transit customers will be able to track train arrival times via computer and web-enabled handheld wireless devices.

The new Train Tracker site, located at, is specifically configured for web-enabled mobile devices.

Riders can select their station from the drop-down menu to track the arrival times of the next southbound and northbound train.

Customers also can check Train Tracker on their computers at by clicking the ”Where is the Train?” link under the Metrorail icon in the Quick Links portal in the upper right. Or they can go directly to

”This is the latest example of how we’re using technology and the Internet to improve how we communicate with our customers,” Transit Director Harpal Kapoor said. “Train Tracker will take the guesswork out of waiting for the train so passengers can plan their trips accordingly.”

The Train Tracker site also features links to the Metrorail system map and schedules for all bus routes serving each station as well as information on connecting routes.

Transit also plans to install overhead electronic signs at every Metrorail station displaying Next Train arrival times.

The first sign was installed in May at the Government Center station next to the Metromover entrance.
