Transdev awarded contract extension for Tri-Rail in Florida


Paris, 15 August 2013 – The Board of the South Florida Regional Transportation Authority unanimously voted to award Veolia Transportation the three remaining option years for the company’s Tri-Rail contract, through June 2017. Representing a total value of 27 million euros, this contract extends the operations mission originally awarded for the Tri-Rail system by the South Florida Regional Transportation Authority (SFRTA) 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 (Miami, Fort Lauderdale and West Palm Beach), with 18 stations designed to integrate with local bus routes. Since 2007, Transdev worked closely with SFRTA to improve on-time performance (OTP) and service resulting in a ridership increase which has topped the four million mark for the last 2 years and an on-time performance which has improved from 35% to 80%.
We are excited to have the opportunity to continue our partnership with the South Florida Regional Transportation Authority and to operate the Tri-Rail service for three more years. This renewal reflects our local team performance and commitment to work closely with SFRTA to consistently provide better mobility solutions in the three-county region and to provide safe, reliable service to the passengers.
