New Tri-Rail Miami International Airport Station Is Now Open
Tri-Railâ€™s new Miami Airport Station (MIA) is now open, as part of the Miami Intermodal Center (MIC).
With this historic opening, Tri-Rail passengers enjoy a seamless and immediate connection to the airport via a short ride on the MIA Mover. Many riders have been anxiously awaiting this announcement as the station had been closed for nearly four years during construction.
Tri-Railâ€™s schedule has been slightly adjusted to include the additional stop, which will return to being the southernmost station on the 72-mile rail corridor. However, arrival times for the remaining stations will remain the same as in the current Tri-Rail schedule.
â€śThis is another significant milestone, which is symbolic of our vital role to connect South Florida to the world,â€ť said Commissioner Bruno Barreiro, Chair of the South Florida Regional Transportation Authority/Tri-Rail. â€śOur loyal passengers, plus the thousands of new riders that we anticipate to travel in and out of Miami International Airport, will greatly enjoy this state-of-the art facility that we expect will become an international transit hub of which we can all be proud.â€ť
The MIC is an intermodal facility designed to accommodate several transportation connections. Tri-Rail now joins Miami-Dade Transitâ€™s Metrorail and Metrobus service which already have access to the facility, along with the Rental Car Center and taxi service. Anticipated future service includes Amtrak, Greyhound and bicycle lockers.
