Tri-Rail can save holiday travelers big money with a stress-free ride to the airport
Fort Lauderdale, Florida (PRWEB) November 30, 2011
Tri-Rail, South Florida’s commuter rail with train service from Miami to Fort Lauderdale and Palm Beach, offers train service to all three South Florida airports (MIA, FLL and PBI), with most stations offering free overnight parking.
The busy holiday travel season is in full swing and many people are making travel arrangements to visit family and friends. Travelers are faced with increased airline fees and costly airport parking, but Tri-Rail can save holiday travelers big money with a stress-free ride to the airport.
The commuter rail system provides direct free shuttle bus service from the Hialeah Market/Miami Airport Station* to the Miami International Airport, and back.
A free shuttle bus also transports passengers to and from the Fort Lauderdale/Hollywood International Airport Station at Dania Beach.
To access the Palm Beach International Airport, passengers connect with Palm Tran’s Route 44 from the West Palm Beach Station, for a nominal 50-cent transfer with proof of a paid Tri-Rail fare.
As an added convenience, Tri-Rail also offers luggage racks onboard trains and free parking at all stations (Note: 24-hour parking is not available at the Fort Lauderdale/Hollywood International Airport Station at Dania Beach lot or garage.)
Getting onboard is as easy as arriving at a train station, purchasing a pass and riding the train to enjoy your holiday travels.
Passes and tickets are available at all Tri-Rail stations and are not sold onboard the trains. To learn more about Tri-Rail visit http://www.tri-rail.com. For train schedules and more information, call 1-800-TRI-RAIL.
*Some weekday train schedule times have the Miami Airport Shuttle Bus originating from the Metrorail Transfer Station.
On July 1, 2003, legislation passed by the Florida Senate and House of Representatives and signed by Governor Jeb Bush, transformed the Tri-County Commuter Rail Authority (Tri-Rail) into the South Florida Regional Transportation Authority (SFRTA.) The new Authority was created with a vision to provide greater mobility in South Florida, thereby improving the economic viability and quality of life of the community, region and state. The Authority's mission is to coordinate, develop and implement a viable regional transportation system in South Florida that endeavors to meet the desires and needs for the movement of people, goods and services.
