Miami now has a Skytrain on Concourse D at the international airport. The terminal has 60 gates and is a mile in length. It would take you over 20 minutes to walk from end to end. The service runs every three minutes so if you miss a train you will not have to wait long for the next.
Also there are stops in the terminal every quarter mile. Each station has separate areas for domestic and international passengers. Each train has four carriages, two for domestic and two for international passengers. The train will carry up to 9,000 passengers an hour and actually runs on the roof of Concourse D.
On one side of the train you get views of the runways, ramps and aircraft, on the other Biscayne Bay. Work on Concourse D is still ongoing and is expected to be finished in 2011. www.miami-airport.com
