The South Florida Regional Transportation Authority (SFRTA) today increased its Tri-Rail commuter-rail service to 46 weekday and 28 weekend trains, or 92% of pre-pandemic levels.

The new schedule marks the fourth incremental adjustment to Tri-Rail service since the agency first reduced service in March due to the COVID-19 pandemic. 

“Since the last increase in service a month ago, we have continued to see an upward trend in ridership,” said SFRTA Executive Director Steven Abrams in a press release. “This increase will not only help accommodate workers for businesses that have recently reopened, but also holiday travelers as people start to plan their vacations.”

This schedule adjustment will likely be Tri-Rail’s last before SFRTA restores full commuter-rail service, Tri-Rail officials said.
