Just make sure you know which stop you're getting off at or you could wind up in a rough area.
Just be sure to check the schedule before hand, especially if it's the weekend when Tri-Rail runs on a 2-hour headway. Also check if the hotel is along a Tri-rail shuttle route, it might save you the cab fare.

The Broward County Transit website doesn't seem to be working well at the moment. From what I could see you would take the number 7 east to Young Circle and then transfer to the 1 south, which would take you all the way to the mall.

The Amtrak station is in Broward County, and the mall is in Miami-Dade County, so there aren't many options. It looks like the number 1 bus is the only one that goes down to the mall.

I'm not sure on times those busses run -- the number to call is (954) 357-8400.

Of course, you can always grab a cab. There are usually a few at the station, and it is a 15 minute ride or less to get to the mall.

At Young Circle, you could also catch the US 1 Breeze, which is a limited stop line that also goes to Aventura Mall. However, if you are leaving the Amtrak Station at 6:30 PM, it will be around 7:00 by the time you get to Young Circle, and the Breeze may not be running (runs rush hours only). So if you see a US 1 Breeze, go ahead and take it, if not then the 1. Both are the same fare.

Speaking of fares, BCt does not issue transfers, so you would have to pay a fare on each bus, or buy a day pass on the 7. Although if you are just taking the two buses, it may be cheaper just to pay the two fares.

Hollywood to Miami: Tri-Rail then Metrorail or bus to the city.

Hollywood to Ft. Lauderdale: Tri-Rail.

I think there's also a 95 express bus from the burbs in Palm Beach and Broward to our great fair city.

I do want to add this:

As someone who used public transportation here for half a year, it SUCKS so much that we have 4+ completely different public transportation systems.

We have the city of Miami's own, Dade county's own, Broward's own, Palm Beach's own and some cities have their own.

SMH! That's HORRIBLE!!

It should be like Chicago's where they have ONE public transportation system with subdivisions, if you will. One handles the city (Chicago/Miami) train and buses, which also serve the nearest suburbs. Another handles the commuter rail, which if you don't know, is the train for the suburbs to get into the city and back, and of course for people in the city to get into the suburbs and get back. And another that handles the buses for the suburbs.

Now THAT is perfection and organized!

Bus routes are bad down here. I live by 195 between exit 39 and 41 and there is not one bus stop in the area without having to walk almost a mile.
