Question

It is either going to be bus, shuttle, or rent a car. rent a car will be most expensive I bet. Try calling and asking the airport? Phone book? Internet?

I found that on a 30 second search on google. Good luck!

Ya I found that one, thanks. They were no help when we called.

I was wondering if anyone knew approx how much a taxi should be between Miami to FLL.

You didn't offer much more information. I can get you there today, but do you have a flight to catch? If so, what time?

The Fort Lauderdale - Miami commuter rail runs from Miami Airport at 4:19PM and arrives at Fort Lauderdale/Hollywood International Airport at Dania Beach at 4:58PM. The fare is $3.00 per person. Trains also depart at 5:19, 5:49, 6:19, 7:19, 8:19, 9:19, and 10:19.

I've never taken it, so I have no true idea.

According to the website, it leaves directly from a terminal at MIA, and goes to FLL. You may want to call them and find out directly, the phone number is on the website whose link I posted.

Thanks guys. Sitting in the Ft Lauderdale airport as we speak taking full advantage of their free wireless...here is how it went down.

Took the free airport shuttle offered from my hotel in SoBe...the extra nice driver dropped us off straight at the train stn...3 dollars later sitting on the train. about 45 mins and some gerat conversation, we arrive at Ft Lauderdale airport stop then take another free shuttle which is waiting right there...easy as pie.

Thx! Next time I am in town, beer is on me

Jakey-poo, you deleted your post! Sneaky sneaky!

You're welcome, whereshegoes. A constant traveler, eh? Do you base yourself in Miami? Where'd you fly to from FLL?

Glad I was of help. It's also helpful to know what it'll be like because I know I'm sure to fly into FLL sometime on Southwest to get to Miami.

Talking

Well has been constant for the past while...3 years. But now I am going to stop for a while. I am pretty much spent in every sense of the word. I got home just in time because I passed out for a few days and still feel like I got hit by a truck.

Anyway. I am based out of Alberta Canada. I live in Edmonton.

I figured as much with your mention of Telus in the cell-phone thread.

I lived in Saskatoon for a year from August 2004 until August of this year. Hated in. It's no wonder that half the population of Alberta is from Saskatchewan
