What is the I-Bus?

In 2006, the Village of Palmetto Bay launched a much-needed intra-Village bus service in accordance with the requirements of the Citizens' Independent Transportation Trust (CITT) program. Operation of the I-Bus service is paid for with funding from the People's Transportation Plan (PTP) transportation surtax approved by county voters to improve transportation choices in Miami-Dade County.

"IBus" is a play on words to reflect the many beautiful ibis that frequent Village parks and neighborhoods. The blue and white buses feature an impressive drawing of this native bird.

I-Bus Amenities

All Village buses are air conditioned, wheelchair accessible and bike rack equipped and the bus ride is free! 

The buses follow the route schedule as close as possible. However, unforeseen traffic conditions may cause the IBus to arrive slightly early or late at times. As with any mode of transportation, please allow ample time for traveling.
