Consolidated Rental Car Center Opens Near MIA

Miami International (MIA) has unveiled its new rental car center, just east of the airport in the middle of Miami-Dade County.

The center, which opened July 13 at 3900 N.W. 25th St., puts 16 rental car companies serving the area around the airport under one roof. Travelers can take a consolidated shuttle bus service from MIA’s arrivals level to the center’s fourth-floor customer service lobby, where they choose their vehicle from the 6,500-car inventory.

The RCC is projected to serve about 28,000 customers each day and can wash and refuel 300 vehicles per hour. Its multi-level fueling system, the first of its kind in the country, and the quick turnaround area includes 120 gas pump positions and 42 car wash bays on three vehicle storage levels.

The shuttle bus service will be replaced in fall 2011 with the MIA Mover, an elevated, 1.25-mile automated people mover system that can transport 3,000 passengers per hour between the MIA and RCC.

“We are extremely indebted to the Florida Department of Transportation for building this facility that benefits not only MIA and its passengers, but all of Miami-Dade County,” says Miami-Dade Aviation Department Director José© Abreu. “The rental car center is another huge step toward making MIA a world-class entrance to South Florida for visitors from around the world.”
