Metromover resumed service Friday morning after a shutdown that lasted about an hour during Miami’s commute.

Miami-Dade Transit, which runs the free elevated train service, announced the shutdown at 5:41 a.m. on Twitter. Spokeswoman Karla Damian said

Miami-Dade Transit runs the automated train, which runs through Miami and serves as a smaller, citywide version of the county’s Metrorail trains, which were unaffected by the mechanical issue. Transit announced the shutdown on Twitter at 5:41 a.m. At 6:50 a.m., spokeswoman Karla Damian said service had resumed but with some limitations.

Transit had dispatched shuttle buses to Metromover stations to transport passengers, and warned of larger disruptions from the effort.
