Miami-Dade Transit Website gets makeover 

Written by 

Miami-Dade Transit's Website has a new streamlined look, with a more user-friendly design to make it easier for transit passengers to find the information they are looking for.
 The newly redesigned website at features large color-coded icons for easy navigation to information about MDT's four modes of transportation - Metrobus, Metrorail, Metromover and STS (MDT's paratransit service).

Basic subject headers with more detailed topic dropdown lists, as well as universal headers letting users link back to the county's main web portal and other department websites, are found at the top of every page.

The home page now features popular interactive rider tools like the Google-powered automated transit Trip Planner; Train Tracker for next-train arrival times; and Service Updates, including bus detours and changes to the Metrorail or Metromover schedule.

And the Website is now mobile-enabled.

"The Website redesign will make using public transportation in Miami-Dade County easier than ever by letting customers find information more quickly and conveniently," Miami-Dade Transit Director Harpal Kapoor said.
