South Florida has a number of Express Buses traveling on major highways. These Express buses offer comfortable rides over relatively long distances (20+ miles) to major employment centers with very few stops along the way at a fraction of the cost of driving a car. Each express bus can seat about 45 passengers; that equals 45 cars off of the roads. That is great for the environment. Express buses are operated by Miami-Dade Transit and Broward County Transit.
Commuters who use express buses at least three times per week are eligible for the Emergency Ride Home benefits. To take advantage of ERH, commuters must be registered with South Florida Commuter Services.
Some express buses operate in 95 Express, 75 Express, 595 Express and 826 Express lanes. It is not uncommon for these buses to arrive at their destinations faster than cars traveling in the general purpose lanes.
