Is there a fast bus service from South Beach to Aventura

Hi. I'm hoping a local can tell me if there is a faster bus service from South Beach to the Aventura Mall than 119 Route S. I'm sure I remember a posting on here a while back advising that there was a bus that made fewer stops and therefore got to Aventura quicker, but I can't find that post and based on the timetables on the Metrobus website, all the buses, apart from a few very early morning ones, take about an hour. Thanks!

You're probably thinking of the "Beach Max" (route # 120)

Here's a link with details:

That bus is much quicker than the S bus, which stops at every block. The 120 stops every 10 blocks and is a much quicker journey.

That's the one I wanted; thanks so much both! I've used the 119 S a couple times before and it's been S L O W so you've saved me a lot of time.

The S bus once took me over an hour and a half... never again! Just be sure to check bus times for the 120, it is not as frequent as the S.

Thanks Jess - I have the timetable printed. But fingers crossed I won't need it; I'm hoping to spend all my time on the beach, a daytrip to Aventura Mall is just my contingency plan if I'm unlucky with the weather again!
