Tri-Rail trains will resume operation Saturday, September 16, 2017.¬†Trains will operate on the regular weekend schedule tomorrow and Sunday, September 17.¬†Beginning Monday, September 18, Tri-Rail will operate on the full weekday schedule of 50 trains. Fares will be waived throughout the weekend, as well as all day Monday.
“Our goal was to resume service as soon as inspections and operation of test trains assured us that it was safe to do so,” said Jack Stephens, SFRTA Executive Director. “We are grateful to our passengers for their patience during this difficult time, as well as to the Tri-Rail team that worked around the clock to help restore regular service.”
The decision to resume regular service tomorrow assumes that no unanticipated issues will be discovered during the final testing this evening.
Due to the Golden Glades Station still being without power, train passengers traveling to the Golden Glades that need elevator access must disembark at the Opa-locka Station, where a shuttle bus will be in place to transport passengers to the Golden Glades Station.
Passengers accessing the Golden Glades Station to board the train will not be able to access the platform by elevator. Station Ambassadors will be posted at the station during this time to have the shuttle bus transport them to Opa-locka to access a train.
Customer service representatives will be available to assist passengers from 7:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Saturday and Sunday and from 4:00 a.m. to 11:30 p.m. Monday.¬†To reach a representative, call 1-800- TRI-RAIL (874-7245).
