Default Transportation between Ft. Lauderdale and Miami

We will be flying into FLL for our July cruise but will be staying at a downtown Miami hotel. There is plenty of info about shuttles between FLL and the Miami cruise terminal, but I'm having difficulty determining who to use for transport (for three of us) from FLL to a Miami hotel. Any info or suggestions will be appreciated.

Two suggestions

Call the hotel in Miami and see who they suggest to pick you up from FLL

or

Our local newspapers down here are

www.sunsentinel.com and www.miamiherald.com

I think you will find little companies that do nothing but airport pickups in the classifieds and services sections.

otherwise, you could yellowcab it to Miami, but its going to be expensive.

Also there are probably other ways, look at the papers websites.

We are renting a car. That way we have transportation for 24 hours before the cruise and the car rental agency has a shuttle to the pier. It came out cheaper that shuttles and taxis. Hope that helps, Carla

Would like to avoid car rental since the hotel we're staying at imposes a $35/day extra fee for parking! May I ask who you checked with about shuttles?

Sorry I don't have the names. My BF's mother did the arranging for that.

We did look at the tri-rail railway. It very inexpensive and depending where you hotel is you can get a ticket on it for just a few dollars from FLL to MIA. We couldn't do that because we have a person in our group with a wheel chair. Hope that helps, Carla
