Passengers arriving at Terminal 1 should follow the signs to the Concourse B pedestrian bridge to access the rental car center. Passengers arriving at Terminals 2, 3 and 4 can take a shuttle bus to the rental car center from outside the baggage claim area.

By taxi, you can reach downtown Fort Lauderdale in 10 minutes and Miami South Beach in 30 minutes. An advantage of traveling by taxi is that you don’t have to share the ride with strangers compared to a bus or train, and your luggage is safely secured in the trunk of the taxi.

Ride services

Ride services such as Uber or Lyft are alternatives to taxis and drop passengers curbside at the departure level. Designated pick-up areas are allowed between Terminals 1 and 2 and Terminals 3 and 4 and are marked with a sign indicating a cell phone.


Route 3 provides service to and from FLL, from Broward Central Terminal to Aventura Mall in Miami. Buses depart from stop 7 at the rental car center and run every 20-30 minutes depending on the day/time. The cost of a single trip is 2 dollars. This is perhaps the cheapest way to reach the city, but space for luggage will be very limited and therefore not ideal if you are traveling in a group with many bags.


Tri-Rail trains connect Fort Lauderdale, Miami and West Palm Beach. Trains run every hour every 20 minutes.

The fare depends on how many zones you pass through, so traveling from Fort Lauderdale to Hollywood International Airport Station costs US$2.50-6.25 for a single trip.
