During the Miami Heat’s championship parade last week, the Metrorail system saw its biggest day ever. We all know that pretty much the majority of Miami’s residents use cars for their daily commute, but the day of the parade encouraged locals to use the often overlooked Metrorail system.

There were over 117,000 riders that brought in over $73,000 in revenue.

“I’m thrilled that so many of our residents chose public transit to get to downtown and celebrate the Miami Heat’s latest NBA Championship,” said Mayor Carlos A. Gimenez in a news release on Monday.

“We at Miami-Dade Transit are delighted to have successfully moved what felt like most of South Florida that day,’’ added Miami-Dade Transit Director Ysela Llort.

That’s definitely a good thing to hear, and maybe, just maybe, one day Miami-Dade’s Metrorail will span all over the county in a proper way to give easy access to thousands of commuters.
