Hey all. Just have a question regarding transferring from Tri-Rail to a Miami-Dade Transit Metrobus. I am planning on buying a round trip ticket from West Palm Beach to Miami (metrorail transfer station). I'd like to take the L bus into Miami Beach and was curious if this is a free transfer or do they charge the .50 transfer fee on board the bus. The MDT website wasn't very clear on this.

Thanks in advance.

This is from a Tri-Rail timetable dated August, 2004 and while this time-
table is no longer in effect, it is the last one that has all of the information
in it.
"With a valid Tri-Rail ticket, transfers to Miami-Dade Transit* (MDT) and
Broward County Transit are free to routes that pass within 1/4 mile of a
Tri-Rail station. In Palm Beach County, transfers are free to all Palm
Tran routes, including those that directly serve Tri-Rail stations."
"* Free transfer not applicable to MDT Express Buses."
Hope this helps.

Thanks a lot, this does help. Looks like the L bus will in fact be free for us.
