The airport has 1 terminal. Semicircular in shape, this terminal has 8 pier-shaped concourses: A, C, D, E, F, G, H, & J. Concourse B was demolished in 2005 and Concourse I excluded to avoid confusion with the number 1.
Note that as part of a major development taking place at the airport, Concourses A & C are currently closed.)
|Terminal passenger links
Moving walkways are available to assist travel between concourses.
|A: Upcoming Development, the Miami Intermodel Center
A massive redevelopment and expansion project is underway that will clearly divide the terminal complex into a North and South terminal and make both much larger than today.
Located next to the airport (and to be connected by the MIA light-rail People Mover), the Miami Intermodel Center is a massive ground transportation hub being developed by the Florida Department of Transportation. To be completed by 2012, the MIC Program consists of a Rental Car Center, the Miami Central Station and major roadway improvements.
It will provide bus and train links to the South Florida region, including the Keys.
The Tri-Rail commuter train system, at the Airport Station, provides connections north along the coast to Miami Dade, Broward and Palm Beach counties, including a stop at Fort Lauderdale International Airport. Bus connections to the Tri-Rail Airport Station are available. Passengers must have a valid ticket prior to boarding the train.
@ Summer 2009 a weekday single fare from the airport to West Palm Beach would cost $6.90.
The Miami Dade Transit Department provides Metrobus services to all areas of Miami-Dade County. Several routes call at the airport, Concourse E. Routes include:
- route 7, downtown Miami.
- route 37, South Miami.
- route 57, South Miami.
- route 110/J, Miami Beach.
Note that no more than two pieces of luggage are allowed. Passengers with luggage should sit in the rear of the bus.
@ Summer 2009 the regular one-way fare is $2. 50 cents will get you a transfer to another bus or to the Metrorail system
|D: Shared Ride Vans
Van-hire firms run door-to-door shuttles, providing service between the airport and passenger-specified drop-offs, including Miami and locations further a-field such as Orlando (4-5 hours) and the Florida Keys. Depending on the number of passengers, these vans may make multiple stops. Apart from SuperShuttle these vans need to be pre-booked. Vans are available on the arrival (ground) level at the airport, outside of the baggage claim areas. @ Summer 2009 some estimate fares per person would be:
- downtown Miami, $14.
- Miami Beach, $19.
Taxis are available only on the arrival (ground) level at the airport, outside of the baggage claim areas. @ Summer 2009 some estimate fares would be:
- downtown Miami, $22.
- Miami Beach, $32.
Limousine services are available upon prior request only.
|G: Rental Cars
Select rental car companies have registration counters or Information/Reservation Boards located inside the baggage claim area. Actual vehicle pick-up for all companies is not on airport property and is located at various off-site areas, which must be accessed by courtesy shuttle van for each separate rental car company.
