Miami Transit System Being Checked After Collision

Forty people were treated after two of the automated Metromover cars bumped Tuesday on the 1.1-mile Brickell Loop operated by Miami-Dade Transit.

A free transit service in downtown Miami is closed today while Miami-Dade Transit inspects its entire 4.4-mile elevated guideway following a Tuesday collision involving two of the automated cars. The Miami Herald reports 40 people riding in those cars received treatment afterward.

Miami-Dade Transit said it would inspect the entire Metromover guideway and service on the Inner and Outer loops of Metromover is suspended until further notice, with bus shuttle service taking its place for now.

Miami-Dade Transit is the 14th-largest transit system in the United States, providing about 326,000 daily trips during weekdays on its system of elevated rail, buses, and Metromover.

Most people riding Metromover cars are standing, although there are seats for the elderly and people with disabilities are at the ends of the cars.
