MIA Rental Car Center (RCC)  

Miami International Airport passengers and South Florida rental car customers now have a convenient, one-stop shop for all their rental car needs just east of MIA in the middle of Miami-Dade County. The MIA Rental Car Center (RCC), which opened on July 13, 2010 at 3900 N.W. 25th Street, consolidates under one roof the operations of 16 rental car companies currently serving the area surrounding MIA.

A new MIA Mover transports travelers from MIA's 3rd level train station located between the Flamingo and Dolphin garages to the RCC’s spacious fourth-level customer service lobby, where they can pick the company and vehicle of their choice from a combined inventory of 6,500 rental cars.

The RCC, which serves approximately 17,000 customers daily, has the capability to wash and re-fuel 300 vehicles per hour because of its multi-level fueling system - the first of its kind in the U.S. – and state-of-the-art Quick Turnaround Area, which includes 120 gas pump positions and 42 car wash bays on three vehicle storage levels.

In addition to improving the rental car experience for MIA passengers, the RCC reduces traffic congestion and air pollution at MIA as well.  The new shuttle bus service cuts the combined rental car bus fleet from 120 buses to 60, decreasing total traffic at the airport’s arrivals level by 15 percent. 

The shuttle bus service was replaced entirely on September 9, 2011 with the MIA Mover, an elevated, 1.25-mile automated people mover system that can transport 3,000 passengers per hour between MIA and the RCC and will reduce gas emissions at the airport by 30 percent.   Returning your rental car at MIA  Adobe  (City Video Guide)

“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,” said 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.”

At Miami International Airport they call this the “MIC,” M-I-C… Miami Intermodal Center. And when it is completed, experts say it will one of the most premier facilities in the country.

Trains, planes and automobiles. It doesn’t matter what form of transportation you use, residents and travelers alike, will soon be able to get it here, says Harpal Kapoor, Director of Transit for Miami-Dade County, ”this will serve as a one stop location. And soon you’ll be able to have one ticket and go anywhere on any type of public transportation in South Florida from Miami to West Palm Beach… one ticket.”

Thirty years in the dreaming, planning, politicizing and building… with a $1.7 billion dollars price tag… when the Miami Intermodal Center is finally finished, it will be a hub where you can find and ride everything… from private cars to rental cars… people movers to bicycles… airplanes to buses… metro-rail to tri-rail… taxis to water taxis.

The Miami Rental Car Center (RCC), already a local architectural landmark, is the first major structure of the $1.7 billion Miami Intermodal Center (MIC) Program. Opened to the public on July 13, 2010, the RCC is a four-level, 3.4-million-square-foot state-of-the-art rental car shopping mall. Each of its four levels is 20 acres in size. The first three floors are dedicated to storage and maintenance operations, and the fourth level is a spacious customer service lobby. Sixteen companies, including all that used to operate inside the airport and several that were located nearby, are now situated in the center.

Among the RCC’s many notable features are its distinctive architecture, enhanced safety and security and the first multi-level fueling system in the United States. Presently, the RCC is the second-largest facility of its kind in the United States, with a total capacity for 6,500 vehicles. The MIC Program is a major transportation hub being sponsored and built by the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT). It will connect many different forms of transportation and decongest the roads in and around Miami International Airport (MIA). Continue Adobe
