The board of the South Florida Regional Transportation Authority (SFRTA) unanimously voted to award Veolia Transportation the three remaining option years for the company’s Tri-Rail contract.

The contract now extends through June 2017. The SFRTA originally awarded the operations contract for the Tri-Rail system to Veolia in early 2007.

The Tri-Rail system serves a 72-mile corridor running parallel to Interstate 95 between West Palm Beach and Miami. It serves three major airports, with 18 stations designed to integrate with local bus routes. 

Veolia continues to work closely with SFRTA to improve on-time performance and service resulting in a daily ridership increase, which has topped the four million mark for the last two years and continues to increase.
