Agreement reached to bring Tri-Rail to All Aboard Florida’s station in Miami

The South Florida Regional Transportation Authority on Friday unanimously approved an agreement that would bring TriRail to All Aboard Florida‘s station in downtown Miami — a move that would ultimately allow the commuter rail service to run between Miami-Dade and Palm Beach counties on the Florida East Coast Railway tracks.2_rails__de__chemin_de__fer1_

Of the 50 daily TriRail trains, 26 are expected to travel to All Aboard’s Miami station.

Under the agreement, a handful of organizations and government agencies based in Miami-Dade County would set aside $43.61 million to pay for a rail line connecting the CSX tracks, which Tri-Rail currently runs on, to the FEC corridor.  The money would also be used to link Tri-Rail to All Aboard’s MiamiCentral station.

Before the plan can move forward, the state’s Department of Transportation must also pledge an additional $17.2 million to fund the connection.
