Best way to get from Boca to University of Miami

My son is going to visit his grandmother in Boca Raton, then needs to get to University of Miami. Is there a bus or other public transportation or is it best to hire someone to drive him? She can drive him locally, but does not want to drive to Miami.

Thanks

Thanks so much!! Just getting ready for trip next week. How "sketchy" is tri rail Hialeh Market/Miami Airport stop on the tri-rail? Do you know if there are cabs there? Otherwise he will take shuttle over to the Metro.

It's a very busy place, though I honestly haven't been there in years. I don't know for sure if there will be cabs there, if not he can take the 133 bus(Tri-Rail shuttle) back to the Central Station and catch a cab from there.

He is taking Tri Rail from Bocal and then Metro to University of Miami. Is it best to get off at the Metro Rail Transfer station or continue to the next station which is Hialiah/Miami Airport in order to get the Metro?

Thanks!

Def transfer at the Metrorail transfer station, the airport station will require a bus, entering the airport terminal and then a small people mover to reach the Metrorail.

Who knew Obama would be visiting Miami yesterday? :) Ended up on the tri rail which was 45 minutes late and grabbling a cab when he got off (don't know which station). Got there, thanks so much!!
