The South Florida Regional Transportation Authority (SFRTA)/Tri-Rail in Pompano Beach, FL, has added a new feature to its web site: Transit Connection Area Maps. These show destinations and attractions that are in the general vicinity of all train stations, including how to access them via transfers to county and city buses, Miami-Dade Transit’s Metrorail, or free SFRTA shuttles. The maps are also on display in all Tri-Rail stations.
“One of the most common questions our customer service representatives hear is: ‘What do I do when I get off the train, where can I go?” said Bonnie Arnold, SFRTA director of marketing and customer service. “These new maps clearly answer that question.”
Designed with the transit user in mind, the maps show such points of interest as government offices, universities, libraries, performing arts centers, local attractions, hospitals, and shopping centers.
To access a map, visit the agency's web site, then click “Rider Information,” “System Map, Station and Shuttle Information,” and either the departure or arrival station. Each station has its own Transit Connection Area Map that shows the bus routes serving it.
All routes are color-coded for easy visibility.
