Miami A Launch Market For Uber’s New Shuttle Service

Uber has announced plans for a new shuttle service, and Miami will be the first to experience the new service.

Uber said it is partnering with Hard Rock Stadium to launch the new service for concerts this summer.

Miami is one of four launch cities named for Uber Shuttle, and the only one with a confirmed destination announced.

Exact routes to and from the stadium haven’t been announced.

Each shuttle will hold 14 to 55 people, and will be operated by local shuttle bus companies.

Prices will range from $15 to $25, and seats can be reserved up to seven days in advance. There won’t be any surge pricing.

The company says it will also be working with officials to create airport shuttle and other routes.

I am sure all the hard working Uber car drivers are excited.
Talk about being thrown under a bus. Pardon the pun.

Everytime I talk to them about concerts and events, they opt to avoid doing pickups and drop offs as they dont make as much just sitting in traffic. This can free up their time to do perimeter jobs. I see it as a good thing

Yet, they always seem available for concerts and events.

Are you serious with this comment? Gig work is not a career. If they’re hard-working, as you say, they’ll find something else to do to bring home income.

Its a free market baby. This is good, better than oaying $75 for a 15 min drive

We need a subway (above ground). We shouldn’t entertain even the thought of anything else!

We?
You need it, maybe.
I’ll bet you could live without it.

Next time you are stuck in traffic, remember that YOU need that too, either to take it or to alleviate your drive…

I dont really get “stuck in traffic” much, if/when I do it is not a nightmare at all.

My car is far more comfortable than the plastic chairs in the government trains, my a/c is never too hot or too cold. No urine smells permeate my elevators.
My cup holders allow cold or hot beverages.

Government trains that tell you where to get on/where to get off, when, don’t drink, don’t eat, etc. Etc, just isn’t for everyone.

It’s called the metrorail and it could be as good as the NYC subway if we actually funded it appropriately

All I can say that this year, the shuttle service to and from Brightline Aventura to and from Hard Rock Stadium for F1 Race was amazingly well organized. First time in 3 years that transporation was not a hazzle. I am interested to see how this develops..

Cool idea but it won’t take off. People want to see reliable mass rapid transit, not coaches for special events

Let Hard Rock Stadium have its Mickey Mouse shuttle service. Extend Metrorail to Freedom Park, and down Northwest 37th Avenue to Douglas Road Station, instead of to autocentric Miami Gardens.

Both should be built but I agree the Douglas Road extension would be more valuable

I hope they also cover sport events like soccer and the Miami open .it’s good that we have more transit options and the private sector is getting involved

This would be a great idea to/from the airport if it could be cheaper than current Uber prices. I usually pay around $20ish each way to/from Brickell. Having a cheaper shuttle option would be welcome!

Until a proper public transit system is built, people who live near the stadium should be paid an inconvenience fee for the disruption these events cause.
Vegas has the right idea with the tunnel system they’re building. Combine that with low cost self driving vehicles and we have a solution. Expect a major announcement on Aug 8 regarding Tesla’s Robotaxi.

Yes, tunnels with automated vehicles is the easy and cost effective solution.

Don’t they choose to live there?

The stadium was built in 1987. The surrounding communities are older. Use of the venue has increased over the years while their on site parking has decreased.
They now use school grounds for parking, block off streets, close the Turnpike interchange and make it a headache just to get in and out of the residential areas, especially east of the stadium off 199 Street.
So the idea of tunnels for electric vehicles /Robotaxis would seem an ideal way to get people to the stadium from Aventura/Brightline, Golden Glades/Tri-rail etc.

Huge, finally private enterprise in the bus space. No doubt will be successful so long as the government doesn’t put restrictions that ….
