Tri-Rail and Metrorail Transfer Station is a Metrorail and Tri-Rail interchange station in Hialeah, Florida, west of Miami proper.

This station is located near the intersection of East 25th Street and 11th Avenue, officially opening to service March 6, 1989. The station was built as a connection for the Tri-Rail and Metrorail rail systems. The Amtrak station, which is served by the Silver Meteor and Silver Star, is located several blocks away and is scheduled to be moved to the new Miami Central Station in 2013.

Levels[edit]

Metrorail arriving on the upper level of the station.

Lower level[edit]

The lower level of the transfer station serves northbound and southbound Tri-Rail trains. The station consists of two side platforms connected by an elevated overpass; an information kiosk, which sells Easy Cards for Metrorail, and easy access to the upper level, which serves Metrorail. The station is highly congested during rush hour. Most of the congestion will be relieved with the opening of the Miami Central Station in 2013.

Upper level[edit]

The upper level of the transfer station serves Metrorail Green Line trains. The station has two side platforms, one for southbound trains, and one for northbound trains (westbound). Fare control has a security kiosk and Easy Card vending machines, along with the route map. Congestion at the station is expected to be relieved upon the opening of the Miami Central Station in 2013, which will facilitate a closer rapid transit point to the central business district.
