Easy and Affordable Ways to Get Around the Gables - Miracle Mile

With all of the recent changes going on around the Miracle Mile, it’s understandable that people have had to rethink some of their transportation options, but there are many options to help you get around. Here are the few ways you can get to point A to point B:

Trolley

The Coral Gables trolley system has been around since 2003. In that time, it’s reduced congestion in and around downtown Coral Gables by a measurable percentage and become a vital link for people reaching their jobs from residences outside Coral Gables in a fast and efficient manner. 

These quick and stylish public transports run in an efficient loop that helps cut down traffic in town by the equivalent of 750 cars every day. If you haven’t had the opportunity yet, hop aboard and take one of the quickest tours around of Coral Gables, completely for free.

Freebee: Get around Downtown Coral Gables 

The Freebee service is a recent addition to the transportation options available to Coral Gables residents and visitors, and as the name implies, it’s free to use.  All that’s required is downloading the Freebee app from the Apple App Store or Google Play, installing it on your mobile device and punching in a request to be picked up. 

A short time later, one of numerous Freebee electric vehicles shows up and whisks you off to your specified destination.

Metromover

Technically, this isn’t in Coral Gables, but it’s an important tool for getting to Coral Gables, particularly from downtown Miami. The Metromover is an elevated rail system that runs in two loops (one inner, one outer) that can help put people in position to grab a Metrorail train into Coral Gables proper. While the Metrorail leg of the trip will cost some money, the Metromover portion is entirely free.

Coral Gables is working with its neighbors and its residents to help make sure everybody can get around town as quickly as possible without having to drive themselves.
