Art Basel brings hoards of jet setters, vacationers, and even Broward residents to Miami, and all those people can make traffic and parking a pain. If only we had a more robust public transit system.
Well, now we do, for a few days at least. Starting Wednesday (Nov. 30) the Miami Downtown Development Authority is trying to make it easier for art lovers to check out this week’s main attractions by offering a free shuttle connecting downtown Miami, Wynwood and Midtown.
The shuttle will run every 30 minutes from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. through Dec. 4. There are 12 stops, including Pulse Art Fair, the Adrienne Arsht Center, the Miami Art Museum and Mary Brickell Village.
(For a full list of stops see the map to the left).
The Miami DDA is an independent public agency of the City of Miami funded by property tax money coming from residents and businesses within its district boundaries. The organization is charged with improving the economy of downtown through different events and capital improvement projects.
