Overview

Herzog was originally awarded a five-year contract that commenced in January 1994 to provide management, operations and equipment, and facilities maintenance services for the Tri-County Commuter Rail Service, now SFRTA, between West Palm Beach and Miami. Over time, the contract scope of work was expanded to include station maintenance and fare vending machine maintenance, and the overhaul of 21 railcars at SFRTA’s request. The contract was extended twice through 2007.

In January 2017, SFRTA’s Board approved a new operating and maintenance agreement with Herzog, which includes operations, rolling stock maintenance, station maintenance, and dispatch. The Tri-Rail commuter system runs parallel to I-95, operating push-pull locomotive and passenger car/cab sets. Originally operating on a single track mainline with passing sidings, the railroad was double-tracked for all but 2 miles of the of approximately 72 miles between line Mangonia Park and Miami. The system operates 50 trains per weekday, 30 on Saturday and 30 on Sunday, serving 18 stations. Annual ridership on the Tri-Rail system is approximately 4.26 million passengers. In addition to the commuter trains, the rail corridor is also shared with Amtrak intercity and CSXT freight trains.
