This new tool tracks Miami’s Metrorail reliability

March 27, 2018

It’s a real-time audit

Transit Alliance Miami is keeping tabs on Metrorail’s on-time performance. The group just launched a “Metrorail Audit” this week: it’s a new tool that tracks exactly how late train arrivals are in real time, StreetsBlog reports.

Train lateness is laid out in something like a pictograph form: green represents on time, yellow is two to five minute late, red is five to 10 minutes late, and black is more than 10 minutes late.

So far in the past five days, according to the audit, 320 trains have been on-time, 706 trains have been late or bunched, and 131 were “ghost trains.” What are ghost trains? That would be scheduled trains that never ran at all.

“We have been told that trains will come frequently, but it is not happening,” the Transit Alliance wrote on Facebook with the launch of the tool, which aims to show exactly what riders are experiencing as they try to take Metrorail.

Last Sunday, only 8 out of 74 southbound Metrorail trains ran on time, 6 trains were over 17 minutes late, including two trains that were 28 minutes and 34 minutes late. This is unacceptable – hold the County accountable, share our audit, spread the voice www.transitalliance.miami/audit (link in profile ) #TransitAudit #MovingMiamiForward . . . . . #miami#metrorail#metrorailmiami#miamitrolley#livelikeyoulivehere#thenewtropic#transitmiami #fiu#mdt#miamidadetransit#miamidade#dadecounty#downtownmiami#miamidadecounty#miamitransit#miamitransitlife#miamitrain#miamibus#miamidadecollege#governmentcenter#governmentcenterstation#mymdt #miamidadecounty #miamidademayor #governorrickscott#wsvnchannel7 #wplglocal10#ileanroslehtinen #mayorgimenez
