Tri-Rail adding trains for Ultra Music Festival

It’s not exactly Rock & Rail, but Tri-Rail is adding extra trains to accommodate concert-goers heading home from the Ultra Music Festival in Miami this weekend.

They can take Metrorail to the Miami Airport station or the Metrorail Transfer station and catch the Tri-Rail trains there.

The northbound train is scheduled to depart from the Miami Airport station at 1:35 a.m. Saturday, following the Friday night concert and 1:35 a.m. Sunday after the Saturday night show.

The last Tri-Rail train is set to depart at 12:35 a.m. Monday following the Sunday night festivities.

Concertgoers heading to the Ultra Music Festival can board a train at any of Tri-Rail’s 18 train stations from West Palm Beach, to Fort Lauderdale and Miami.

Friday’s regular fares are between $2.50 and $11.55 round-trip and weekend fares are $5 for all day.

To save time and avoid lines, passengers can pre-load their EASY Cards with the appropriate dollar amount to cover their transfers with Metrorail, officials said. or 954-356-4303 or Twitter @WayneRoustan
