Wheelchair accessible bus to Miami Beach

Me and Caroline are onboard the bus that will transport us to Miami Beach.

The Miami Metrobus number 150 runs between Miami International Airport MIA and Miami Beach. The Metrobuses is wheelchair accessible with a ramp and the driver will assist you to get to the wheelchair designated seat in the bus.

You reach the Metrobuses by taking the MIA Mover train (wheelchair accessible) from the airport terminals to the airports central station where the buses runs from.

Accessible van not available when we arrive

Yesterday I tried to book Super Shuttle airport transfer between Miami Airport MIA and our hotel Holiday Inn Oceanfront at Collins Avenue, Miami Beach, and got this message:

So now we need to find out a Plan B. We can either take a direct Miami Metrobus bus number 150 from Miami Airport MIA to Miami Beach, the so called Miami Beach Flyer that hopefully has low entrance wheelchair accessible buses, or a wheelchair accessible taxi.

From Miami Airport MIA website:

Patrons in need of accessible taxicab service should request it upon arrival at the ground level curbside area. Please allow a reasonable amount of additional time to call an equipped vehicle from the holding lot, located just outside the terminal area.  Drivers will assist patrons with baggage.
