South Dade Busway and M Path
The 30-mile long M-Path and South Dade Trail make up a nearly continuous paved path from downtown Miami to Florida City along the Metrorail elevated rail line and the South Miami-Dade Busway transit facilities. These “trails-with-transit” are along the right-of-way of the former Florida East Coast Railroad. The paths connect directly to six Metrorail Stations and 56 Busway stations as well as the Vizcaya Museum and Gardens, University of Miami and downtown South Miami. Several bike shops are nearby. The areas around the trail range from heavily urbanized to suburban to rural, and are all influenced by the nearby US Highway 1. The M-Path and South Dade Trail have been designated as part of the East Coast Greenway’s system of trails between Key West and Maine.
