The 2 main modes of public transportation in Fort Lauderdale and the surrounding areas are bus and train.

The bus system is a bit slow, but extensive and affordable. A one way ticket is $1.25.

The Tri-Rail train runs north and south parallel to our main highway (Interstate 95). The train runs from West Palm Beach, through Fort Lauderdale, to Miami. It is a very convenient way to get to the PBI, FLL or MIA airports.

A BIT OF HISTORY:
Fort Lauderdale is known as the "Venice of America" due to its expansive and intricate canal system.

Fort Lauderdale is named after a series of forts built by the United States during the Second Seminole War. However, development of the city did not begin until 50 years after the forts were abandoned at the end of the conflict. Three forts named "Fort Lauderdale" were constructed; the first was at the fork of the New River, the second at Tarpon Bend, in what is now known as the Sailboat Bend neighborhood, and the third near the site of the Bahia Mar Marina.

The forts took their name from Major William Lauderdale, who was the commander of the detachment of soldiers who built the first fort.
