Hi, How do people in Hialeah manage to get around at late night without the bus running 24 hrs there? Does the trains run 24 hrs there? Please help me?
P.S. Try not to hate me for taking public transit around Miami without a car

they have cars.

not hating - just practically speaking, you can't really get around at 'all hours' in some of the neighborhoods unless you have your own wheels, or are willing to spend on taxi's. before i moved here, i would drive my own car all the way from Pennsylvania when i came to spend a month at a time here, and on shorter trips i would rent a car - even just for a long weekend - cause it's just SUCH a prekka to be without transportation here. Since i'm a musician and often out til the wee hours, i'd never be able to get home w/out driving, i could not be here w/out a vehicle.

The OP has to think cost effectiveness.

yah i realize.

but then there is reality - some things are just not possible - and getting around some neighborhoods 24-7 is one of those things. if there's no bus and OP has no car -- then taxi is the only other alternative.

Here's a system map: http://www.co.miami-dade.fl.us/trans..._bus_large.pdf

Hialeah is served by the 29, 33, 37, 42, 54, 62, 73, 135, and L routes, as well as by MetroRail and Tri-Rail.

It's also served by 2 routes run by the City of Hialeah: City of Hialeah Transit Department (http://www.hialeahfl.gov/dep/transit/default.aspx - broken link)

Unfortunately, the only bus that runs 24/7 is the L, and that only serves a small part of Hialeah (East 25th Street from Palm Avenue to the Miami border, where it continues along West 79th Street, in Gladeview/West Little River). For everywhere else, you'll either have to walk or take a taxi.

If cost is the issue and you must get around at odd hours of the night and early AM, just get a bike. Hialeah is big, but not thaaat big. There won't be much traffi and it is flat so you can certainly make do without a car at those times if money is an issue. Just watch out for drunk drivers since no once expects bicyclists in Hialeah much less at 2 in the morning when they are comming back from da club.

Well if you had to get from Point A to Point B and you can't afford a taxi I think a bike makes more sense than walking.
