Directions & Parking

Getting to the AmericanAirlines Arena by public transportation is easy. The MetroRail, MetroMover and MetroBus are just a short walk from the Arena entrance.

Parking

With the ongoing growth and development of downtown Miami, fewer parking options in the immediate area surrounding AmericanAirlines Arena will be available to arena guests. A number of parking lots located directly adjacent to the facility have been permanently eliminated. Patrons are strongly advised to consider alternative parking options, which include a variety of lots offering a flat rate and within a convenient walking distance of the Arena.
