The Tri-Rail system, a crucial mode of transportation for thousands of South Floridians, was shut down Tuesday afternoon until 12:15 am Wednesday morning.

Commuters were left stranded as the South Florida Rail Corridor scrambled to fix the, as of yet, undefined issue.

WPTV reported that even the executive director of Tri-Rail called the outage “very mysterious.”

The South Florida Rail Corridor agency announced the success of the fix after midnight Wednesday, about nine hours after trains stopped and buses were delayed to ship stranded Tri-Rail passengers from station to station, the Miami Herald reports.

To keep up to date with all Tri-Rail information, visit their Facebook and Twitter pages or call them at 800-874-7245 between 5 a.m. and 10:30 p.m. Monday-Friday, and 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. on weekends and holidays for information on service updates.
