Not renting a car? Get around the Fort Lauderdale/Miami area via Sun Trolley, Tri-Rail, Water Taxi, Uber, Lyft, taxi, transit, and more!
Tri-Rail, South Florida’s premier commuter rail system, serves Broward, Miami-Dade and Palm Beach counties with 18 conveniently located train stations, connections to local buses and the Metrorail, and access to all three international airports with service every day of the year.
The Sun Trolley offers seven routes, including the free Riverwalk Water Trolley, to take you all around the “Venice of the Americas.” To ride the Sun Trolley, just “Wave ’n’ Ride”: stand in a safe location anywhere along the route and the driver will come pick you up. Guests can track trolleys in real time on the free Trolley Tracker app for Apple and Android devices. Each route is free except for the Beach and Las Olas Links, which cost $1 for a single ride and $3 for a day pass.
Take the Water Taxi tour to explore Fort Lauderdale and Hollywood from the water! There are 10 stops in Fort Lauderdale and one stop in Hollywood at the Margaritaville Hollywood Beach Resort and the Historic Hollywood Broadwalk offering live entertainment nightly. Additionally, Water Taxi operates a complimentary Water Trolley that is supported by the City of Fort Lauderdale that makes 8 stops along the River Route.
Your ticket allows you to hop on and off the boats all day. Your All Day Pass also links Fort Lauderdale and Hollywood. $28 all day pass, $23 Sr/Military (Seniors are age 65 or older), $14 child 5-11 (children 4 and under are free). Moonlight Madness – after 5pm $18. Must be purchased on board after 5pm. $299 annual pass (must be purchased at the Water Taxi Headquarters). Important note: For ticketing and boarding, go directly to one of the water Taxi stops, not the office as Water Taxis do not depart from the office location.
