Tri-Rail has reached several milestones as it prepares to begin train service to downtown Miami’s MiamiCentral, according to Miami Today.
A total of 26 new trains per day are planned.
South Florida Regional Transportation Authority Executive Director David Dech told the paper that they are now “staffed up to the levels we need to be” to allow for the new service.
The Automatic Train Control safety system is now installed, along with another safety system, he added.
Brightline, which is based at MiamiCentral, has approved Tri-Rail’s proposed schedule to MiamiCentral. Florida East Coast Railway, which owns the tracks, is currently reviewing the schedule and is in constant communication.
Service is expected to begin in late 2023 or early 2024.
