Photos Show Downtown Miami’s New Tri-Rail Station, Where Service Was Just Expanded

Photos by Phillip Pessar show the new Tri-Rail station at MiamiCentral.

Tri-Rail began operating train service to MiamiCentral in mid-January.

On January 27, TriRail expanded operations and began operating its full Downtown Miami Link service, with 13 daily trains on weekdays, and 11 on weekends.

Downtown Miami passengers are required to transfer to another train in Hialeah until new trains that meet stricter exhaust standards are purchased.

Miami-Dade needs lots of work but MiamiCentral is now a decent train station

Used to be a classy place prior to WWII. Then again, so was Opa-Locka.

There was hardly anything in Hialeah and Opa-Locka prior to WWII. Vast majority of growth was in 1950s when large tracts of suburban houses were built.

Funny how you cowards love saying this lame bs about Hialeah

Hialeah has homes selling for a million plus these days, yet the perpetually online hardcore turboleftist nerds are adamant in pretending the place is a warzone run down ghetto like liberty city, miami gardens, carol city, etc.

Hialeah is the part of the county...By far

Nothing says breathtaking like a station atop a giant parking garage with Swiss cheese holes. Brightline is a great asset to South Florida but their station architecture is absolutely horrendous.

But does it come straight down from points north, or do you still have to transfer inland near Hialeah?

Transfer. This is not a new route service yet.

From what I understand, it will only go to a transfer station for a few months, then they’ll introduce service w/o switching at Hialeah.

To be honest miami central Station is a cut above all the other tri rail stations. The rest are dumps with antiquated tvm machines, homeless people that congregate, and hard working security/transit officers that are more for show than anything else. Tri rail needs to improve so that its not known as trash fail

It’s time for those cheesy coconut palms to come off already. Do a paint scheme similar to SunRail.

Are you kidding? They are literally in the process of painting them all dark blue with a few stripes and getting rid of the once award-winning coconut and tropical sky theme.

Wow even the platform benches deep into the paid area of the station have those hostile achitecture bum prevention dividers on them.

Because even when rich people lay down they look like homeless and loiterers.
