Beginning this Friday, Tri-Rail will now traverse Fort Lauderdale’s New River on a new train bridge. This is a big step within Tri-Rail’s expansion, allowing SFRTA to start running 40-50 trains per day by the end of this month. This means that within Tri-Rail’s new schedule, service will improve to much more manageable 20-30 minute headways. Hopefully more regional commuters will at least consider giving Florida’s only regional rail line a chance now that service is improved.

    Yay! This is something I’ve been looking forward to.

    Funny, though the Miami Herald has covered this grand opening several times (as has the Palm Beach Post), the Sun-Sentinel has not, and Tri-Rail‘s website has yet to be updated. Somebody’s not on the ball.

    None of the Gov sites are ever “on the ball”
