Just got a job with Carnival Cruise Lines and the nearest tri rail station is 5 miles from there.. How do I make this work without using my own car to drive the distance?? Can I get a taxi from the tri rail station out to NW 8TH AVE?

PLEASE HELP

Forget it. You would spend up to 2 hours getting there by mass transit. Even by car, it can take over an hour when many people are on the road. Doral is a boxed-in traffic nightmare, a result of central planning and corruption.

Yes but 75 to the palmetto is often a slow crawl, and if you go on the turnpike is is no better. Try it sometime and see.

You could do Tri-Rail to Hialeah Market and then the 36 bus to Carnival.

If you're going to drive the Turnpike would be your best bet. Far better than 95 or the Palmetto.

There's gotta be thousands of people coming to work at Doral from Broward,especially the I-75 corridor,just take 75 to the Turnpike,even if the job was near the palmetto I would prefer to take the turnpike and drive east on 36th street than go near the Palmetto if it's anytime around rush hour.Public transportation would probably have you spend a couple of hours coming and going from work.

From Deerfield Beach take the Sawgrass to I-75 to the turnpike,but yeah that's a long way,from Pembroke Pines,Weston,Cooper City not a bad drive at all but from Deerfield Beach I can
understand why they might be looking into taking the Tri-Rail.

You guys are lightweights when it comes to traffic. If you get caught on the LIE - Long Island Expressway or the BQE in NYC at the wrong time you could be stuck for 2 hours or even 4 depending on how far you are driving.
