Transportation

Getting to and from the airport

Miller students fly into either Miami International (MIA) or Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International (FLL) Airport.

MIA is located just 6 miles from the Medical Campus. While public transportation to either airport is possible, it is a slow process. The Metrorail connects to another North/South train known as the Tri-Rail, which then offers a shuttle to the FLL airport at the Ft. Lauderdale station.

Similarly there is a bus running from the Earlington Heights Metrorail Station to MIA known as the Airport Flyer for just $2.35 if time permits. Other options like the GO shuttle can pick you up closer to home, but are slightly more expensive.

Parking and Security Office

Visit the Parking Office to buy both monthly garage access or Metrorail pass (Civic Center station is the stop for the medical school campus). If driving to school from day 1, try to visit the Parking Office before or during Orientation.

Monthly Metrorail passes cost $50, while monthly parking passes run closer to $60. The Parking and Security Office accepts either cash or check, but does not accept credit cards. Metrorail passes for the upcoming month are available starting on the 28th of the month prior, through the 4th of the month you wish to buy the pass for. One day parking passes can also be bought at a discounted rate in the Parking Office if you need to drive to campus one day.
Most first and second year students park in the 15th St. Garage. Some of the others have a waitlist that you can put yourself on. Exact locations of the many parking garages on campus can be found on the Department of Security
