Miami DDA offers free Art Basel shuttle

By | November 30th, 2011 | No Comments

Attracting hoards of jet setters, vacationers, and even Broward residents to Miami, Art Basel Miami Beach — the fair itself and all the simultaneous satellite fairs — inevitably creates major parking and traffic headaches. If only Miami had a more robust public transit system. Well, for a few days at least, it does.

Starting Wednesday, Nov. 30, the Miami Downtown Development Authority is trying to make it easier for art lovers to check out this week’s main attractions by offering a free shuttle connecting downtown, Wynwood, and Midtown.

The shuttle will run every 30 minutes from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. through Sunday, Dec. 4, the last day of the fair. There are 12 stops, including Pulse Art Fair, the Adrienne Arsht Center, the Miami Art Museum, and the Wynwood Arts District.

The Miami DDA is an independent public agency of the City of Miami funded by property tax money coming from residents and businesses within its district boundaries. The organization is charged with improving the economy of downtown through different events and capital improvement projects.
