Projects: Miami Central Station
Tri-Rail is a regional commuter-rail transportation system linking Miami, Fort Lauderdale, and West Palm Beach, Florida. The rail line stretches 72 miles and has 18 stations, from the Magnolia Park Station in West Palm Beach to the Miami Airport Station, next to Miami International Airport. Tri-Rail connects to Palm Tran, Broward County Transit and Miami-Dade Transit.
Tri-Rail is not only an alternative to driving on Interstate 95, it also provides service to all three of South Florida's international airports: Miami International Airport, Ft. Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport, and Palm Beach International Airport. Tri-Rail has also become a favorite mode of transportation for those traveling to South Florida's major events and attractions.
The existing Tri-Rail Miami Airport Station closed temporarily on September 12, 2011, and service has been relocated just north to the Hialeah Market Station. The Miami Airport Station and its tracks are being upgraded and will serve to define the rail depot area of the Miami Central Station. Tri-Rail is operated by the South Florida Regional Transportation Authority.
