Tri-Rail's new station at the Miami International Airport is scheduled to open April 5, the South Florida Regional Transportation Authority (SFRTA) announced yesterday. Part of the Miami Central Station at the Miami Intermodal Center, the Tri-Rail station will provide an immediate connection to the airport via the automated MIA Mover light-rail shuttle, SFRTA officials said.SFRTA Chair Bruno Barreiro expects the new station to become an international transit hub."This is another significant milestone, which is symbolic of our vital role to connect South Florida to the world," he said in a press release.Trains on the start of the northbound run will experience a slight schedule adjustment as a result of the additional stop, although arrival times for other stations would remain the same as they are now, SFRTA officials said.The Miami Central Station already serves as a stop for Miami-Dade Transit's Metrorail, with Amtrak and Greyhound expected to join in the future, according to SFRTA.
