The streetcars are FREE to ride, and operate every 15 minutes, starting at 7:00am Monday through Friday, and 8:30am on Saturday and Sunday. The streetcars are also wheelchair accessible, with a ramp at each station.
The closest streetcar stop to Terminals 2 & 3 is Cumberland Avenue Station (stop #7), and then it's a quick 3 minute walk to the terminals.
The closest streetcar stop to Terminal 6 is Publix Station (stop #5) or York Street Station (stop #6), and then it's a short walk to the entrance at Kennedy Blvd.
Much like a public bus, the streetcars require a pull on the overhead cord in order to make a stop.
