With the Turnpike, 595, and surface roads in Davie under construction, driving to work from my home in Boca Raton had become a nightmare. Not to mention the traffic during morning and afternoon rush hour. I had thought about taking Tri-Rail to work ever since I moved to Boca four years ago, but it was not until I found out about that SFEC Shuttle that it became a real alternative to driving. So I started to learn the train and shuttle schedules then made a couple of trial runs. It was great! The trains and shuttles run on time, and they are clean, cool and safe. Riding is fun.
The amount of money I am saving on gas alone pays for my fares, especially with my EDP discount. Taking the train reduces wear and tear on my new car and keeps miles off it, too. Most important, I do not arrive at work frustrated from the drive anymore.
I would recommend Tri-Rail to anyone who has a north-south commute to work. It works for me!

Employees must enroll online to join the Employer Discount Program. Tri-Rail will request approval for all applications from the NSU EDP representative. Once approval is given, an EDP ID card is mailed to the address provided by the employee by Tri-Rail.
EDP members must produce an EDP ID when on the train. Additionally, if a NSU EDP member is purchasing discounted tickets from ticket agent(s) in lieu of the NSU salary deduction program, the EDP ID must be produced.
The EDP is beneficial to everyone other than seniors (aged 65 and older), students and individuals deemed with a disability. These categories are already eligible for discounts with Tri-Rail.
