THE STORY

#MADEINDADE

 

The Jitney is the Miami-Mini Bus that runs up and down NE 2nd Avenue. It costs $1.50 to ride, there are no official stops, and you yell in French Creole when you want to get off. It’s a bumpy, sweaty, and intimate ride through Miami, from the desolation of Downtown, into the renaissance of Wynwood and Little Haiti, past the Ivory Towers of Miami Shores and through the ruffled edges of Opa Locka and North Miami into Aventura and back.

The Jitney is uniquely Miami.
